Pinwheel publishes three issues of poetry, artwork, and photography per year. Our issues include poets at various stages of their writing careers, and we do not subscribe to one creative aesthetic over another. If one is so inclined, one can like Pinwheel on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

We proudly nominate poems for Best of the Net, The Pushcart Prize, and Bettering American Poetry.

Pinwheel was founded by Stephen Danos and Dolly Lemke.


We hold an open reading period every May and receive submissions via Submittable. We look forward to reading your poems!


Here at Pinwheel, we request First North American Serial Rights, as well as acknowledgment in all subsequent publications of poems we publish. Naturally, all rights revert to the author upon either the refusal of those terms or the publication of poems in Pinwheel. We promise to keep every poem we publish alive in our Archive, pending the apocalypse.
