Transom is currently open for unsolicited submissions. 

Unless otherwise indicated on this page, Transom welcomes submissions year-round. Please submit only once every 6 months.

We encourage you to read Transom to get a sense of what we publish before submitting.

When we are open for submissions, please send us a Word or Word-compatible document of 3-6 poems, with a cover letter, via our online submission manager.

If you are submitting work in translation, please include the original text as well. The translator is responsible for obtaining the permission(s) of the copyright-holder(s) to reprint the original texts.

Simultaneous submissions are fine; just let us know if your poems are no longer available. Previously published poems are great for you, but not for us.
