The Paris-American Prize Submissions
Our Winter 2015 celebrity poet was
Open for submissions year round, from anyone, anywhere in the world.
Every week, we feature a poet at any stage of their career on the Paris-American website. We choose poetry based on quality and originality; there are no genre biases or preferences. Depending on how many poems are accepted by an individual poet, different poems will be showcased randomly throughout the week.
Please submit 3-5 unpublished poems, here. Submittable will only accept .doc and .docx files. If sending poems, please combine them into one single file. Include a brief cover letter along with your name, address, and e-mail address on each page of the submission. The Paris-American obtains first electronic rights.
Simultaneous submissions are fine, as long as you notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. Please withdraw your entire submission, even if only the work becomes partially unavailable (e.g., one poem is taken in another journal) and resubmit.
Submissions made by paper mail or email will be returned unread.
