Submission Guidelines

A lone adirondak chair in a beautiful garden of blooming trees

Each spring, The Swarthmore Literary Review publishes in print and electronic form. In order that we may meet our deadlines, we ask that all work be sent electronically by March 15th. Submissions that we receive after the deadline will be considered for next spring's issue.

We have no special requirements as to poetic form or genre; however, all work must be previously unpublished. Please email no more than five poems, along with a short biography, to as a PDF document. We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
