Poetry submissions are closed till June 30, 2017. Please hold your wonderful work till then and send it to us in July! Prose on poetry is open to submissions.
We publish original poetry, prose on poetry, and art three times a year- January for Winter, May for Summer, and September for Autumn. Poetry is gathered through general submissions, though once in a while we run works from poets we read and admire. We also have a fondness for poets who have never published their work before.
Prose on poetry may be submitted as book reviews, essays on contemporary poetry, poet writing on another poet, or interviews. For the moment, prose on poetry is limited only to Indian Poetry in English.
Art is solicited at the discretion of Art Editor.
To submit your work, send 4-6 previously unpublished poems or 1500-3500 word prose on poetry with a cover letter. We have recently adopted a no-bio policy, and from Summer 2017 issue, we will not publish bios on the website. Response time varies; you should hear from us in six to eight weeks. We don't count poems on personal blogs or websites as "published". We accept simultaneous submissions, but please inform us in the event of your poem(s) being accepted for publication elsewhere. Direct all queries to email@example.com.
To submit your work, please only use our submission manager. It is a great way for submitters to keep track of their submissions and also for us to maintain the database. Submissions that are e-mailed will not be read.
We require first serial rights for the poems or artworks we publish, with copyright reverting to the author 30 days after publication. We request to be acknowledged in any future re-printing or publication of poems or artworks that first appeared in Vayavya.
