We publish three times a year: in April for the Spring Issue, August for the Summer Issue, and December for the Winter Issue. Our submission windows are as follows:
February 1 – 29 for Spring Issue
June 1 – 30 for Summer Issue
October 1 – 31 for Winter Issue
Please send no more than three poems as a word document to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘SUBMISSION’. Poems must be previously unpublished. Please include a short biographical note in the body of your email. Poems submitted outside of the submission window will not be read.
We do accept simultaneous submissions. Please let us know if your work has been placed elsewhere.
We have no restriction on theme or length but for long poems or sequences we suggest no more than three A4 pages.
We aim to respond to all submissions within four weeks from the close of the submission window.
Presently we are not accepting submissions of prose (although we hope this might change soon).
Unfortunately we cannot offer payment for poems (although we hope this might change soon). bath magg is run by a tiny team of volunteers, so, for now, all we can offer is our love.
