We are looking for well-wrought poems. Intrigue us, move us, surprise us with stunning imagery, lyricism, soundplay, structure. Disturb our well-trod patterns of thought.

If submitting to poetry, please do not submit to another genre unless this submission is declined.

The submission process includes a text entry box titled "COVER LETTER," the only place where you provide the following information:

  • Name, address, email, phone, poem title, line count and a brief bio (50 words or less).
  • Where did you hear about Bacopa Literary Review?

The file you upload must contain only the title and work itself, no identifying information.

  • 1-3 poems per submission
  • Limit 88 lines including spaces each poem
  • DO NOT DOUBLE SPACE (show the shape of your poem as it will appear in print)
  • 12-point type; Arial font preferred
  • Submit the file in .doc, .docx or .rtf only
If your work is accepted for publication, you agree to grant us First North American Serial Rights.
