Poetry submissions

AERODROME publishes original poetry weekly.

Poetry submissions are currently closed.

Our 2017 submission periods are:

  • 1 — 14 June
  • 1 — 14 September
  • 1 — 14 December

Poems submitted outside of these periods will not be evaluated for possible publication.

When submitting:

During the submission periods only, send your poems as an attachment — as a Word document (.doc or .docx) using the form below.

Poems should be single spaced and not longer than 35 lines.

Please include your name alongside the title of each poem.

If you are submitting several poems, please send them in a single document. Please only submit a maximum of four poems per submissions period.

We will only accept poems that have not been previously published (with the exception of having been published on your personal website or blog). Please only submit poems written in English.

You will retain the copyright to your work, but by submitting to AERODROME you give us permission to publish your poetry online, in print and elsewhere.

Poems that land in our mailbox during submission periods are evaluated by AERODROME’s poetry editor, Finuala Dowling. We’ll be in touch within about four weeks from the date of the end of the submission period if your poetry has been selected for publication. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide feedback on poems which have not been selected.

Submit your poem (DURING SUBMISSION PERIODS ONLY):
