We are working to migrate all submission guidelines to this site. For now, contest guidelines may be viewed on the PSNH website.


General submissions are only open to members of the Poetry Society of New Hampshire. We encourage all members to submit work for consideration. General poetry submissions should be emailed to as Microsoft Word documents in Times New Roman 12 pt. font – ONE poem per file. Files must include:

  • Name as you’d like it to appear
  • Name on your membership (if different)
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Email
  • Your website, blog, or other social media site (if applicable)
  • A short bio (25 words or less)
  • Title (or denote as “untitled”)
  • Poem that has never been previously published

Note: Please do not place anything in all-caps in your file as we will have to retype it during the layout process.

General Submission Deadlines:
Please send in your poems whenever you have something to share.
We will respond to your submission in 6 months or less.

Please read the list of all the special calls for submission that we have open below, as well as complete details on how to submit work for them.

If for any reason you cannot upload a submission, please print a copy and include a cover letter that contains all the information listed above. You may then mail your submission to:
