Women Submissions 2018 Archive

Punch Drunk Press is currently seeking submissions from women-identifying poets for our second annual Featured Women Poets contest.

Here at Punch Drunk Press, we actively strive to support and promote women‘s voices, especially the voices of LGBTQ-identifying women and women of color. This goal is important, immediate, and something we are always working towards. We are excited to announce our second Annual Call for Women Poets. We are currently seeking poetry submissions from women-identifying poets.

The 2018 submission period runs from June 1 to July 31. From our submissions, we will choose 4 writers to feature extensively on our site throughout the month of August. This feature will include a Q&A session, as well as a showcase of multiple pieces of each author’s work.

In order to be considered, please send 3-6 poems to submissions@punchdrunkpress.com.

In this email, please include your name and “Featured Women Poets” in the subject line. You should also include a brief poet bio and your poems formatted as Word documents. We encourage creativity in your submission and we would also love to see any art and photographs you want featured on the website alongside your poems.

Thank you for submitting to Punch Drunk Press. We look forward to reviewing your work. You can expect to hear back from us in 2-3 months.
