Submissions guidelines

Please send submissions to info@thecuratorblog.org. Attach a profile picture and include a one-sentence description of yourself. If you wish, you may also include a short paragraph giving some background for the poem, story, or visual art.

We accept multiple submissions and do not require first rights, which means that we will publish already published work, as long as the author still has the rights to it. For works that haven’t been previously published, we do not require exclusive rights for any period of time. Currently the only right we require for work that we publish is the right to publish it on our website and in other types of media should we decide to do so. For poems and fiction: We will choose photos to go with poetry and fiction that we publish, but if the writer has a picture that goes with the work, we will consider it.

Poems and other works of art are accepted based on their depth and quality of composition, and always at the discretion of the editors. We are less interested in inspirational verse or aimless ramblings, but rather in poetry with which a reader can engage in thought, and which speaks not to the mind but to the heart. But our primary interest is to publish worthwhile poetry, and if you aren’t sure whether your writing fits our expectations, please submit it anyway! Similar qualifications apply to fiction and visual art.

We are committed to helping writers and artists to improve their craft and to publish their work. Thus if we don’t publish your work, we will provide you with feedback about our decision.

Thank you for your work!
