Requiem is an online poetry magazine. The poems published by Requiem will also appear in a yearly print anthology. By submitting to Requiem you give permission for your poems to be published in the online magazine as well as the anthology.
We will publish 15-20 poems a month. If your poem is accepted and it doesn’t appear in the current issue, it will be in the following issue. It may take 4-6 weeks to receive a response.
Please follow submission guidelines carefully. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines may not be used.
Only previously unpublished work will be considered for publication in Requiem. Simultaneous submissions are okay but please let us know immediately if your work is accepted somewhere else.
Please include a 50-100 word bio in the cover letter field of the submission manager. An actual cover letter is not needed.
If your poem is accepted, I will contact you about sending a JPG headshot photo to be used on the contributor’s page.
The bio and Headshot will appear on the Requiem website.
For questions about submissions, please email: email@example.com. Do not send submissions to the e-mail, please use the submission manager below.
Please send 3-5 poems. Please only include one poem per file. You will have to send each poem separately. Please do not include your name or any info that can identify you in the file with your poem. All submissions are blind. Your name will be included with your submission details.
Once your poem has been published in Requiem, it can not be withdrawn from the online magazine or the anthology.
All rights revert back to poet after publication.
There are no deadlines for submission to Requiem, because all submissions will rollover to the next month but the deadline for the current issue is the last week of the month so that I can have the issue ready to go online by the first week of the next month. If your poem is accepted but does not appear in the current issue, it will be in the next issue.
All deadlines also apply to cover art submissions as well.
Cover Art Submissions (Now Open)
Cover Art Submissions are open again
Each issue of Requiem will include cover art which will appear on the issue page. Cover art may also be included in the yearly anthology. By submitting your photography/artwork you give permission for your work to be published in the online magazine as well as the yearly anthology. Since this is for the cover of the magazine, the magazine name will be added to your work along with issue number. Once your work has been published, it can not be withdrawn.
All Cover Art submissions should be in the form of JPEG files. Please only send 5-6 pieces per submission. The file name for each piece should be the name of the piece. (ex: BoatatNight.jpeg or Boat_at_Night.jpeg)
