Twyckenham Notes is an online journal that publishes solicited and unsolicited poetry. Submissions are accepted year around. We are now reading submissions for Issue Two (Fall 2017).
TN is based out of South Bend, Indiana. In the post-industrial wake that has gripped the Midwest of America, a cultural revitalization is occurring as towns and cities remake their identities. We are interested in poetry that captures this sentiment.
~ Please send up to 5 poems in a single .doc or .docx file to twyckenhamnotes AT gmail DOT com
~ One poem per page. We prefer poems that fit on one page, but will make exceptions.
~ Please do not include any identifying information on the poems themselves. All work will be read blind.
~ Include a cover letter with a third person bio and previous publications.
~ Use a standard font.
Poets will be awarded $5 per accepted poem.
Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. Please notify us immediately via email if one (or more) of your poems has been accepted elsewhere. We accept previously unpublished work only.
Poets of all backgrounds are welcome to submit to TN. Poetry that promotes or glorifies racism, sexism, or homophobic ideals will be shredded.
We are not interested in overly experimental poetry in which the writer-reader connection is lost entirely. We need meaning. We want poetry with lifeblood and a current.
Twyckenham Notes acquires First North American Serial Rights and the right to archive your work online. If your work is subsequently published elsewhere (in a book of poems or anthology), please mention that it first appeared here. Past contributors should wait one year from the date of publication to submit again.
We look forward to reading your work!
