Poetry Submission


Village Square is looking for fresh, inspiring work. There are true things in the world only observed by a single set of eyes, perceived by a unique touch, borne on the beat of a lone heart. Poetry is that heart singing those truths. We are looking for work that moves beyond the ordinary, that uncovers what’s hidden, that reaches into the depths of our hearts and reveals what’s true in all of us.

  • We accept up to five poems per submission.
  • Please submit poems formatted as you would like to see them in print, preferably in a 12 point Calibri or New Times Roman font.
  • Individual Poems should typically be no more than three pages long. Each poem should start on a new page. Your submission should give a strong sense of your style and range. We accept submissions of all poetic forms and genres but do not accept translations.
