Prose poems are pure creation, the playful and daring edge of poetry. The writer must provide powerful lyrical language and, above all, a truthful, commanding voice.

If submitting to prose 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.
  • One prose poem
  • Limit 500 words 
  • DO NOT DOUBLE SPACE (show the shape of your prose 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.
