Poemeleon: A Journal of Poetry

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Welcome to Poemeleon: A Journal of Poetry’s online submissions manager.

Poemeleon is now open for submissions for a special guest-edited Asian Pacific American (APA) issue:

From #blacklivesmatter to #modelminoritymutiny to #actualasianpoets, recent times have been ripe with reasons for Asian Pacific American (APA) poets to make sure their voices are not just heard but felt—enough to cause significant ripples in the spheres of citizenship and consciousness. At the same time, Asians have been in North America since the 16th century—living, writing, experimenting, (re)inventing for and of themselves—drawing from a myriad of histories, languages, and aesthetics that both divide and unite.

For this special issue of Poemeleon with guest editors Kenji C. Liu and Angela Penaredondo, we are seeking poetry (text and visual) from APA poets that comes from a variety of styles, modes, structures, dreams, and spaces. Send us your best work. We want to celebrate and make it visible, allow it to reverberate across borders as it should!

Expect a response within 3 months after close of submissions. If you have not heard from us after this time period please feel free to inquire.

Thank you for your interest in Poemeleon!
