CQ1  

The flagship publication of the CSPS is the CQ, which  it has published continually since 1972. We accept poems literally from around the world. Submissions can be made through this page of the website or sent to our post office box. Requirements for the submissions are the following:

        • Name, address, telephone number, and email address, on each page of your submission
        • One-page poems are best, but a two-page maximum for poems in any case
        • SASE with sufficient US postage (whether domestic or foreign) for requested response(s) if you mail your submission
        • No biographies or résumés, as only the poems are judged
        • The poems must be the original, unpublished work of the poet
        • Foreign language poems with translations are encouraged
        • Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, but please notify us at once if your submission is accepted for publication elsewhere

Poems are not returned, so keep copies if you submit through the Post Office Box! Poems considered for a given issue are generally collected during the previous calendar quarter. Send only one set of poems per calendar quarter. Payment is in one copy of the CQ and all rights remain with the poet. Send poetry submissions to:

The CSPS Poetry Letter is a venue for previously published or award-winning poems that otherwise might not see re-publication, as there are generally restrictions on previously published works in the poetry world. When you submit for the CSPS Poetry Letter, please include your contact information, as well as the name of the publication in which the poem first appeared or the name of the contest and the award it received, and the date of the poem's appearance or award.

Send your Poetry Letter submissions as attachments to an email addressed to the Editor - Poetry Letter link on the Contact Us page.

You may also mail your submissions to:
