Impossible Archetype Poetry Submissions

Deadline: 1 Aug 2019

Impossible Archetype is an international online journal of LGBTQ+ poetry – they welcome work from LGBTQ+ poets of all genders. All contributors must identify on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Work submitted does not need to directly identify this (although it absolutely can!). 

All styles and forms welcome, from page poetry, to experimental poetry, to slam poetry, (although particular care here should be taken that it will work solely in a text format).

Anyone who submitted work for consideration for issues 1 – 5, whether accepted or not, are more than welcome to submit for issue 6.

Submission Guidelines:

Submit 1 – 4 poems to No upper line length; they welcome longer work.  A good rule of thumb is to keep the submission under ten pages total.

Please format the subject line as follows:
Submission: x Poem/s by [INSERT NAME]

Submit all poems as an ONE attachment. Word files .doc or .docx only. Use a standard font like Times New Roman. Work submitted will be considered the final draft.

Within the submission, please make sure to include
– your name (and, if different, your pen name)
– a biographical note (please keep this to 100 words or less).

They will respond to all submissions within two weeks of the submission window closing date. No simultaneous submissions.
