Poetry Guidelines

Call for Submissions: Poetry

The Freeman accepts poetry submissions year-round to be considered for publication in the print magazine and online. 

Although each issue has a theme of its own, poems need not relate to any theme. Our primary criterion is always literary excellence.

Guidelines

  • Payment is $50 per poem, as well as a copy of the issue of publication.
  • Submissions must be unpublished poems or translations only.
  • Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if noted as such.
  • Translations into English are accepted, but either the translator must have documented permission to publish the translations at the time of submission or the poems must be in the common domain per U.S. and international copyright law.
  • Include copies of the poems in the original language with any translation submissions.
  • Send up to 6 unpublished poems, up to 60 lines each (exceptions to the length restriction may be made in rare cases), in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format to Luke Hankins, Poetry Editor,  at poetry@fee.org.
  • You can expect a response within 6 weeks of receipt. If you have not received a response after 6 weeks, you may query by email to the poetry editor.

The Freeman acquires first North American serial rights for each poem or translation published. Rights revert to the author or translator upon publication, though The Freeman must be credited with first publication in any subsequent publication. (e.g., “'Name of Poem' originally appeared in The Freeman.”)

CURRENT ISSUE

December 2014

Unfortunately, educating people about phenomena that are counterintuitive, not-so-easy to remember, and suggest our individual lack of human control (for starters) can seem like an uphill battle in the war of ideas. So we sally forth into a kind of wilderness, an economic fairyland. We are myth busters in a world where people crave myths more than reality. Why do they so readily embrace untruth? Primarily because the immediate costs of doing so are so low and the psychic benefits are so high.
