Thank you for considering Pinwheel as a potential home for your poems. We consider unsolicited poetry submissions on an annual basis during the month of May. We are currently open for submissions until June 8, 2018. When submitting to Pinwheel, please follow the following guidelines:



— Read poems from our most recent issue and ARCHIVE to get a feel for the journal.


— Submissions should consist of 3-5 poems (up to 10 pages). We look at excerpts from long poems, too.


 Simultaneous submissions are fine, as long as you let us know immediately via a Submittable note.


— Use a standard font type (Times New Roman, etc.) and size (12 point).


— Please do not send us previously published poems.


— Only one submission per open reading period. Any unsolicited submissions sent to us outside of our submission period (May 1st – 31st, 2018) will not be considered.



Poems we accept will be eligible for publication in future issues of Pinwheel. We can’t wait to read your work!
