POETRY SUBMISSIONS FOR PRIME NUMBER MAGAZINE, Issue 173, April–June 2020
Prime Number Magazine (a Press 53 publication) is now open for submissions for poetry to be published in Issue 173, on April 1, 2020.
Guest Poetry Editor: Michael Beadle, author of Beasts of Eden.
Submission period: October 1 – December 31, 2019 midnight Eastern time.
Reporting Time: Poets will receive an acceptance or rejection no later than one month prior to publication date. Submissions will open every quarter with a new guest editor. Poets are encouraged to submit again during the open submission periods. Please limit your submissions to one poem per submission period.
Reading Fee: None
Submit one unpublished poem, no more than three pages, written in English in a standard font (Times, Garamond, etc) in whatever style you wish to see the poem presented to readers. Please limit your submission to one poem per submission period. Guest editors have been instructed to read only the first poem if more than one poem is submitted. Note: Since we allow for simultaneous submissions, our one-poem submission rule eliminates confusion if a poem in a multi-poem submission is accepted elsewhere. This saves us a lot of time and grief. We hope you understand.
Simultaneous submissions are acceptable but please withdraw work immediately through Submittable if accepted elsewhere. You will find the "Withdraw" button in the upper right corner of your submission. Only unpublished works will be considered.
Eligibility: Submissions are open to writers anywhere in the world who write in English.
Rights: Prime Number Magazine will be granted First Serial Rights, including the right to permanently archive the accepted poem. After the work is published, all rights revert back to the author.
Payment: Writers living in the United States will receive a free copy of the guest judge's book from Press 53. Writers living outside the United States receive no compensation other than publication.
Questions/Comments should be directed to Kevin Morgan Watson, Publisher and Editor in Chief, at Kevin@Press53.com.
