Guidelines for poetry submissions:

  1. Except in special cases (determined by the editor) Ragazine does not accept poems previously published online or in print.
  2. Send poetry submissions to: Subject line to read: Poetry Submission. Poems should appear in the body of the e-mail, not as attachments.
  3. Include a brief biography, no more than three to four sentences.
  4. If the poem is over three pages in length, it may be sent in an attachment, but ask the editor first so she/he knows to expect it and can acknowledge your inquiry.
  5. No more than three poems per submission.
  6. No more than 4 submissions per year.
  7. Poetry Book/Chapbook Reviews of 1 to 2 pages are welcomed. These can be sent in an attachment.
  8. Ragazine is especially interested in translations. In such cases, the poem in its original language also should be included.
  9. No websites. Ragazine will not accept poems from websites, blogs, facebook, etc.

Poetry Editor’s note:

Poems accepted for Ragazine will appear over the next two to three issues, as the editor has received much good work that she wants to publish, but has room only for five or six poets max per issue. If you receive an acceptance, know the poem may appear in an issue three months to four months after the editor has accepted your work. It is not always for the very next issue. Do not think she has forgotten her promise to publish the poem. We update every six to eight weeks. If, after you’ve grown old and tired, you feel we are remiss in getting back to you, give a nudge.
