Poetry Call for Submissions


Oloris Publishing Poetry Call for Submissions

At Oloris Publishing, we love poetry! We love reading it, we love writing it, and we love publishing it. We love poetry so much that we’ve decided that one month isn’t enough poetry in the year, and we’re now looking to read poetry from you all year round.

Please send us your finished poetry collections! Collections should be between 30-40 poems in length, and carefully curated. We want to see only your best work, and arranged to display each poem in the best light possible.

We are reading year round for a variety of publications.

Every three months, or seasonally, we will pick the best collection from the batch to produce in print. Every collection submitted will be considered for print.

Never fear, however, if your collection is not selected for print for the three month reading period. There are still other ways we will publish your work.

Collections we love but that don’t take the ultimate spot will be published in ebook format.

Poems we love from the collections will be considered for poetry anthology ebooks. (And possibly a print anthology in the future!)

There are a lot of ways to get your poems published by us.

How to Submit

Here’s the sticky part. As a small, independent publisher, we’re mostly a labor of love here, which means we don’t have a lot of funding. What this translates to is a reading fee. If you want us to read and consider your collection, you must first submit an $18 reading fee. Any submission sent without the reading fee paid will not be considered.

However, in exchange for paying the reading fee, you get:

  • Your manuscript considered for print publication
  • Your manuscript considered for electronic publication
  • Your poems considered for anthology publication
  • A coupon code for a free ebook download from our online shop
  • The satisfaction of knowing that you’re keeping an independent publisher in business

Once you pay the fee, you’ll receive an order confirmation email with further instructions on how to submit your manuscript.

Thank you for considering publication with us. We’re very eager to read your work!
