House Mountain Review invites submissions of innovative, aesthetically-diverse poetry for our inaugural Spring 2020 issue. Our first reading period will run from 1 October - 15 December.
Submit up to five poems as a single .docx or .pdf file. Please submit only original, previously-unpublished poems in English (multi-lingual texts are permissible so long as part of the poem appears in English). Please include a cover letter and a brief third-person biography with your submission.
HMR obtains First North American Serial Rights to publish writing. Upon publication, all rights revert back to the author. As a courtesy, we ask that you acknowledge House Mountain Review as the place of first publication for any subsequent publications of the work.
Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, provided that authors notify HMR immediately when a piece has been accepted elsewhere. A reading fee of $3 directly supports the production costs for the journal. HMR will also offer fee-free reading days periodically, which will be advertised on our social media accounts. Multiple submissions are welcome, but each submission must be accompanied by its own reading fee.
