Thank you for your interest in Thuya Poetry Review. We look forward to reading your work. We are currently accepting submissions for issue two. The
reading period is from February 15 to June 15. Expected response time is about 3 months, but you may
hear from us sooner.

Please read all of the following policies carefully before submitting your work:

  • Submit only one document per issue, containing up to, but no more than, 5 poems.
  • Submissions should be formatted as a word document: .doc or .docx. Submissions not
    formatted in the way specified will not be considered.
  • Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but notify us immediately if your work is accepted
    elsewhere by adding a note on the submission.
  • We only consider previously unpublished work. Work that has appeared elsewhere, including
    social media posts, is not accepted.
  • If for some reason you are unable to submit via submittable, please email your submission to with the subject line “ATTN Editors”.
  • Thuya Poetry Review acquires first serial rights and non-exclusive reprint rights. Reprint
    rights return to the author post-publication.
  • We pride ourselves as being one of a small group of journals that does not require a
    submission fee.
  • We pay our contributors. Compensation will likely be nominal—we are, after all, a non-
    profit—our budget is contingent upon donations received, which varies annually, and
    therefore so does the pay-scale. If your work is accepted, we will disclose the projected
    payment amount in the notification.
  • We pay contributors via PayPal or Check.
