Submission Guidelines for
The Noble Poets' Newsletter

The Noble Poets' Newsletter publishes an eclectic range of poetry with rich and startling imagery, unusual viewpoints, and earth/body/nature/female centered meditations. We like poetry of the subterranean, feelings, the body, philosophical ruminations, and real experiences.

What we don't want: religious, political, moral pontificating, dogma, profanity, racism, violence, pornography, or sexism. And, please, no greeting card verse. While we support free speech, we look for quality contributions that adhere to our guidelines for public decency. We prefer non-rhyming work.

Submissions are accepted year round. Reply times vary from one week to three months. We keep a three-month backlog. Accepted work appears in the next available issue.  As payment, published authors receive two (2) copies of the newsletter that features their work.  Rights revert to authors upon publication, but we appreciate acknowledgement as the first publisher of the piece(s).

The newsletter is 11 X 17 double-sided, folded in half or
8.5 X 11 doubled-sided and stapled. TNPN includes poetry, artwork, and articles/essays on poetry related topics.

Please submit quality  free verse poetry or short articles/essays accompanied by a self addressed stamped envelope (SASE) or International Reply Coupons (for artists and writers living outside the U.S.) with the proper postage. Submissions received without proper postage, sadly, are disqualified and manuscripts are not returned.

We enjoy cover letters with personality and feeling. Please tell us something about yourself and why you are submitting. We are not interested in a list of previous publication credits. We'd rather know something about you. What keeps you sane? What kind of pets do you have? Why do you live where you do, etc. Don't be afraid to try us! We are nice folks and enjoy helping poets fit with the publication. We encourage beginning writers to submit and pride ourselves on fast and humane replies/correspondances (after all, we are poets too!).

Buy a subscription and you are guaranteed to be published by us at least once. This means that we work with poets to develop their work so that it fits with the quality of the publication. Please buy at least a sample issue before submitting. Sample issues are $3. Yearly subscriptions of three issues are $7. Please make checks payable to Elizabeth Florio, not the Noble Poets' Newsletter.
