How to submit poems to SOUTH

We only consider unpublished poems.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.
