Transom is currently OPEN for submissions.  

Unless otherwise indicated, Transom welcomes submissions year-round. Please submit only once every 6 months.

We encourage you to read Transom to get a sense of what we publish before submitting.

When we are open for submissions, please submit a Word or Word-compatible document of 3-6 poems with a cover letter.

If you are submitting work in translation, please include the original text as well. The translator is responsible for obtaining the permission(s) of the copyright-holder(s) to reprint the original texts.

Simultaneous submissions are fine; just let us know if your poems are no longer available. Previously published poems are great for you, but not for us.

If you would like to support the production of Transom, please submit here. The submissions should follow the appropriate guidelines for either poetry or translation, and we give our free submissions the same consideration as our tip jar submissions. 

All of the money you contribute will go toward keeping Transom going. Thank you, friend!
