Submission Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in Lily Poetry Review!

Lily Poetry Review is a print journal set to publish in the winter and summer of each year.

Our porch light is always on.

We must charge a nominal fee to cover the cost of submissions.

The Lily Poetry Review is interested in promoting contemporary poets, poetry, flash fiction and literary citizenship.

We promise that each writer will be proud of all of the work published here.

Please don’t send previously published material.

Send no more than five pieces per submission.

Authors are free to  send simultaneous submissions as long as they withdraw work here once it is accepted elsewhere.

Make sure each submission is on one document and that it is a Microsoft Word document.

We will respond within 3-6 months. Sooner, when possible.

We guarantee a thorough and generous reading of your work. Lily holds first serial rights for the material we publish, which automatically reverts to the author upon publication.
