How to submit poems and copies for review


We only consider unpublished poems.

Please do not send poems which appear or have appeared in open access areas of the internet, as these are deemed already published.

Poems should be in English in any style, but please study the magazine before submitting. A few back issues are held online at the Poetry Library. A complimentary copy is sent to successful poets. The poet retains the copyright of any printed poems. We do not accept translations.

Please print and use this SOUTH PDF submission form. It has all the necessary information for submitting to SOUTH.

Copies for Review

SOUTH welcomes review copies from publishers.

Publishers should bear in mind that SOUTH is an independent poetry magazine run by a small team of volunteers, published twice yearly. We review only paperback books and pamphlets written in English.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee to publish a review for all copies submitted, to return review copies or to send copies of the magazine to publishers. We do not accept unsolicited reviews.

Please send copies for review to: SOUTH Poetry Magazine, PO Box 9338, Wimborne BH21 9JA. If a review is published, we will send publishers a .pdf, and a Word version of the review if requested.
