Submission Guidelines

Bone Bouquet seeks to publish the best new writing by female poets, from artists both established and emerging. We are especially interested in work that is unpredictable, poems that have both sass and authority. The best way to get a sense of what kind of work we value is to read previous issues. In fact, Issue 4.1 is now available to read online in its entirety.

Our reading period is currently OPEN and will close on October 31, 2017. Please DO NOT email submissions; click the link to travel to our Submittable page. 

Simultaneous submissions are fine, as long as we are notified when work is accepted elsewhere. Please make a note of withdrawals using Submittable’s “add a note to this submission” function. It is difficult to track emails about this matter; please do not email about withdrawals.

Thank you!
