Poetry submissions are closed till our next call

We have created a listing with Duotrope and are trying out their Duosuma Submission Manager for this season. For poetry submissions, please follow our link.

All types of poetry are welcome. This includes, but is not limited to, lyrical, narrative, experimental, visual, found and erasure, poetry in translation, prose, hybrid, and collaborative work.

Moving forward, we intend to run two issues a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. Our open reading periods will be August 1st to September 30th and February 1st to March 31st. We cap at 400 submissions.

The Night Heron Barks holds first serial rights for work we publish, the right to reprint in other formats with your permission. Upon publication, all rights revert to the author. Please cite The Night Heron Barks if your poems are published elsewhere in the future.

Submit through Duosuma
