Radar Poetry

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


We welcome submissions of poems during our two open reading periods: November 1 - January 1 and March 1 - May 1.

Given the high volume of submissions Radar happily receives, we can only read non-fee submissions at the beginning of each reading period. Please submit early to take advantage of this opportunity. 

Once the free submission cap is reached, we will continue to accept $3.00 “Tip Jar” submissions for the remainder of the reading period.

Please note: We reserve the right to close our general submission periods early if we reach a certain number of submissions, in order to give each submission the time and consideration it deserves. 


We will be open to Coniston Prize submissions from June 1 - August 1. Full guidelines at www.radarpoetry.com/contest.


Radar Poetry also accepts original submissions of visual art in any medium through Submittable during our two reading periods, March 1-May 1 and November 1-January 1

Submit up to 20 images, in .jpg format, with at least 300 dpi/ppi resolution. Within your submission, include a brief bio and a link to your website and/or social media. We only consider artwork that has not previously been published in a literary magazine. 

Radar promotes and celebrates the artists we publish on social media.
