Poetry

We are interested in poetry of all styles, but none in which the writer-reader connection is lost entirely. Edgy is good; so is heart. We want kinetic poetry with lifeblood and plenty of momentum. The best way to get a feel for what we like is to visit one of our past issues.

We pay $10 per accepted poem.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

  • Please send up to 5 poems in a single .doc or .docx file
  • Please do not include any identifying information on the poems themselves. All work will be read blind.
  • Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. We accept previously unpublished work only.
  • Include a third person bio and previous publications in the cover letter box in Submittable.
  • Poems must be in English.
  • One poem per page. Use a standard font.
  • Please only submit once per reading period. Both accepted and declined poets should wait at least 6 months (two issues) before submitting again.
  • If you need to make a correction to your submission, please DO NOT withdraw. Notify us of the changes through the messaging system in Submittable and we will correct your submission.

Poets of all backgrounds are welcome to submit to TN. Poetry that promotes or glorifies racism, sexism, or homophobic ideals will be shredded.

Twyckenham Notes nominates accepted poetry for various awards and contests, including Bettering American Poetry and the Pushcart Prize. Poetry published in TN has been named among the finalists for the Best of the Net Anthology.

We look forward to reading your work!

Artwork

We consider artwork and photography for publication in each issue. We usually select one to two artists, featuring a favorite and extraordinary piece as the issue cover image. This cover image is displayed on the magazine’s homepage for up to three months, or until the next issue is published.

We are drawn particularly to surrealism, work in which the human person is the subject, or abstract compositions. Artwork of natural landscapes, while holding their own great qualities, are not in the publication interests of Twyckenham Notes. We want to stress that by photography, we mean photographs that are compositions, not just pictures of ‘things’. Photographs that are aware of the principles of art and thus are striking in their use of line, shape, contrast, & color have the highest chance of publication. Great photography shows us a perspective of the world we could not normally capture just by walking around.

We pay $15 per accepted piece.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

  • Artwork of all styles will be considered
  • Please send up to 10 pieces of artwork as attachments
  • Exceptional photography will be considered
  • Images/artwork must be in high-resolution digital copy
  • Include a third person bio in the cover letter section in Submittable
  • Simultaneous submissions are encouraged.
  • We accept previously unpublished work only.

Artists of all backgrounds are welcome to submit to TN. Art that promotes or glorifies racism, sexism, or homophobic ideals will be deleted.

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 or anthology), please mention that it first appeared here. If your work is not selected, please wait at least two issues before submitting again. Past contributors should wait one year from the date of publication to submit again.

Featured Artist Series

Twyckenham Notes will publish work from a single writer or artist as a part of the Featured Artist Series. If selected, the featured artist will have their work showcased on the front page of the magazine. The Featured Artist series will consider poetry, artwork, and exceptional photography. Unpublished work only.

For an idea of our poetic tastes, please read any of the available back-issues. As for artwork, we are drawn particularly to surrealism, work in which the human person is the subject, or abstract compositions. Artwork of natural landscapes, while holding their own great qualities, are not in the publication interests of Twyckenham Notes. We want to stress that by “exceptional photography”, we mean photographs that are compositions, not just pictures of ‘things’. Photographs that are aware of the principles of art and thus are striking in their use of line, shape, contrast, & color have the highest chance of publication. It is our opinion that great photography shows us a perspective of the world we could not normally capture just by walking around.

If selected, the Featured Artist will have their poems, photography, or artwork showcased on the front page of the magazine as well as in the “Notes” section. Publication frequency is at the discretion of Twyckenham Notes and is dependent on the quality of submissions. A new Featured Artist may be published once every month or as long as several months may pass between new featured artists.
