The submission period for the Robert Siegel Prize will run from January 1, 2024 to the end of February. Print and online magazines are invited to submit up to five poems that were published in 2023. Each submission should be sent to as a single email with an attachment including only poems and author names. Submitters not contacted by June 1st should assume that none of their poems have been selected.


Authors mailed no more than three unpublished poems to a PO box in Highland, NY, including their names and email addresses on the poems. We asked them not to include return envelopes or cover letters. Simultaneous submissions weren't accepted.

The submission period for this issue extended from September 1 to December 1, 2022. Authors who hadn't heard from us by April 2023 were asked to assume that we wouldn't be publishing the poems they submitted. There's no payment for accepted work. Authors retain their copyright.

Editors excluded from consideration anyone they knew personally. Each staff editor selected no more than seven poems from the submissions. Guest editors chose as many poems as they wished from the staff picks, naming poems they thought stood out from those they selected.
