We publish original poetry, prose on poetry, and art three times a year.
Poetry is gathered through general submissions, though once in a while we solicit 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To submit your work, send 4-6 previously unpublished poems or 1500-3500 word prose on poetry with a cover letter.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.
To submit your work, we request you to use our submission manager. It is a great platform for submitters to keep track of their submissions and also for us to maintain the database. Direct all queries to firstname.lastname@example.org, but please note that this email is not for making submissions.
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 reprinting or publication of poems or artworks that first appeared in Vayavya.
