Our submission period extends from August 1 to November 30 of each year. We do not accept more than one submission per poet during our reading period. If you were published in the most recent issue of CPR, please wait one issue before submitting again, as we avoid publishing poets in consecutive issues. Please note that we do not accept more than five pages of poetry. We will respond by February. Submissions are accepted by regular mail to:
Columbia Poetry Review
Department of English
Columbia College Chicago
600 South Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60605
Please supply a SASE for notification only. Submissions will not be returned. Poems submitted outside our reading period will not be returned.
Beginning July 1st, email submissions will be accepted exclusively through Submittable: http://columbiapoetry.submittable.com/submit. The cost of submission through Submittable is $3.00.
We strongly encourage anyone interested in submitting to Columbia Poetry Review to read a recent issue of the magazine before submitting. For information about ordering copies of Columbia Poetry Review, please contact us.
