Poetry Submissions 

  • Currently, there is a 4 poem limit per person.
  • Each poem will be published on this website under the name of the poet and the name of the poem. Your poetry may also be listed on additional pages of this website. The editor reserves the right to not post poetry that is blatantly profane or of poor quality.
  • Just copy and paste your poem into an email and sent it to us at

Other Considerations

  • The poem must be unpublished, including online, unless the author or publisher has given The Free Poet permission to publish previously published and copyrighted poems. If your poem has not been previously published, we will assume that we will have what is commonly referred to as First Serial Rights. If the poem has been accepted elsewhere, please notify us as soon as possible so we can make arrangements to remove the poem from our website or obtain reprint permission from the author or publisher that holds the copyright.  Please note, the poem may appear in our monthly or yearly archives beyond the typical 6 month duration.
  • We accept poems through regular mail or email. Only one poem per page single spaced for regular mail.  Poems that are emailed must have a line break between each poem and placed in the body of the email or sent as a Word or Text attachment to the email.
  • Poems may be selected for book or magazine publication in The Free Poet at some future date when it becomes possible to deliver a printed publication annually or more frequently.
  • Please supply your Full Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, and Email Address (if available) on each page or in the body of the email.
  • Each Poem must have a title.
  • Writing must be legible and typed.
