FIELD is published twice yearly, in spring and fall. We read submissions mid-August through May and usually reply within six weeks, though occasionally we may take longer. Please keep in mind that FIELD is one of the most selective small poetry journals in the country. We suggest you familiarize yourself with our journal before submitting.
FIELD accepts poetry only. Send 2-6 poems at a time, combined into a single document, starting each poem on a new page. Please be sure your name is on each poem. Type the titles of your poems, separated by commas, in the Title box.
We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
Translations are welcome if publication permission has been acquired from the author of the original work.
Book-length manuscripts of poetry in translation will be considered year-round for the FIELD Translation Series. Please send sample poems and a letter of inquiry describing the work and indicating that you have the author's permission, where appropriate, to seek publication for your translation.
(Original book manuscripts are considered for the FIELD Poetry Series only by invitation, or through entering the annual FIELD Poetry Prize competition during the month of May.)
