Angle is published twice a year, in Spring (March) and Autumn (September). We guarantee to read submissions for the Spring issue from January, and for the Autumn issue from July, but you may submit at any time, and in most cases we will respond within a week or so.
Issue 5 (March 2014) is now closed for submissions. You may continue to submit work for issues 6 onward, although we will be taking a break from reading at least until issue 5 is published.
We have a preference for poetry in received or nonce forms, but are open to considering any work which has a strong element of rhythm or 'music', however achieved. Before submitting work to Angle we recommend that you read our previous issues in order to familiarise yourself with the type and quality of poems we are seeking.
Please send all submissions of up to 6 poems (one per file) via our Submissions Manager below. Please ensure you include a brief, third person literary biography in the "Cover Letter" section.
Simultaneous submissions are acceptable to us, so long as you advise us immediately if work is accepted elsewhere. We may, exceptionally, accept work which has been previously published elsewhere, although please advise if this is the case on submission.
Please do not submit more than once in any reading period.
We would ask, as a courtesy, that, following acceptance of a previously unpublished poem from ourselves, contributors do not submit the same work for consideration elsewhere, or agree to its republication until one month has elapsed following publication of the relevant Angle issue. Where work is subsequently republished, please include a first publication credit for Angle.
The editors' decisions are final. We regret that we cannot enter into correspondence about our selection process, nor do we offer critique.
For any queries or correspondence other than submissions, please emails us at: angleeditor[at]virginmedia[dot]com
