POETRY - GENERAL

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.
