Thank you for considering Ruminate as a potential home for your work. We welcome submissions from both emerging and established writers and are looking for poems that engage the contemplative spirit of our journal, that aren't afraid to take risks, and that treat the poem as a space for discovery rather than resolution. Please send us 3-5 poems for consideration (in one document). Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please add a note to your submission if you need to withdraw a piece.
To help keep our queue moving, please submit no more than once every six months and wait 3-4 months before inquiring about the status of your submission. We look forward to reading your work!
Special Call for Submissions: We're dedicating the poetry section of the summer 2018 issue to long and/or series poems. Send one our way! Preferred length is 3-6 pages, but we will make room for the right poem. We pay $15/page with a max of $60 a poem. Submit by the end of the general reading period.
