Hi from the team at Submittable’s Blog! We're interested in sharing your work about creativity, the publishing industry, and/or digital media. Please see our specific guidelines for each category below.
We prefer submissions of 1000 words or less. Submittable offers $50** per post, payable upon publication. We do not pay for re-posts. We reserve the right to not publish any work submitted. If you have accompanying artwork, please include it in the submission.
Thanks for your interest in Submittable--we look forward to reading your work.
**Free entries to the Submittable-Centric Poetry Contest will not operate under these terms. See the contest guildlines for further information.
In honor of National Poetry Month, Submittable seeks submissions via Submittable of Submittable-themed poems—alliteration, repetition, and meta-poesis encouraged! Write us an ode, a rant, a rhyming chant. We'd love to consider your submission-focused haikus, sonnets, villanelles; we appreciate the elliptical, ekphrastic, and enjambed. Humor is encouraged. Come at us with that verse!
Please submit ONLY ONE POEM and ensure that it is related to Submittable's platform. Here's an absurd example of a potential submission:
Submittable leaves me sad and blue
When too many subs are in the queue
The editors wait till I've lost all hope
To tell me if my work is dope
But I don't care I'll not be meek
Poems for days and prose for weeks
If we like your poem, we’ll share it. If we love it, you may be our contest winner and receive a $100 prize, plus a sweet Submittable-surprise (end-rhyme intentional). Two runner-ups will receive a care package that includes stickers and other fun bounty.
IMPORTANT: You may submit more than once. Submissions that do not comply with contest guidelines will be automatically rejected. Because this contest includes prizes for winning entries, compensation will not mirror that of the other Submittable guest blog posts. Selected authors (who are not finalists) may choose to allow us to publish their poem, without renumeration, at their discretion.
