• We only publish original, unpublished poetry. Your  work must not have been published elsewhere, including on your personal  website or blog. Work in translation may have appeared elsewhere, but  not in English.
  • Simultaneous submissions are accepted; please notify us if the poem is published elsewhere.
  • You may submit up to five poems at one time, but please do not submit more than one poetry submission at a time to Guernica.
  • Guernica will  hold exclusive print and digital rights to the published poem for 90  days, after which our rights become non-exclusive; your poem will remain on our website in perpetuity.
  • Guernica offers honoraria of $50 for poetry.
  • We are an all-volunteer organization, and we reply to poetry submissions within, approximately, twelve weeks.
We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
