Clementine Poetry: Accepting Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone | February 18, 2015

Clementine has an elegant and easy to navigate website. They publish one issue every month. Most issues include the work of eight poets. They generally publish one poem per poet. After publication your poem appears on the first page for a month and then is is held in the digital archives for a year and then published as part of a yearly print anthology copy.

At this point they cannot afford to offer contributors copies, but if you choose to purchase a copy, the pricing should be very reasonable. Because this year is their first full year as a publisher, I do not know the exact pricing yet.

Clementine publishes a great deal of the work they receive. This might change as they become more established, however at this point in time it does not seem to be that difficult to get work accepted.

The poems they publish tend to lean towards narrative, although not exclusively. They also do not appear to be sticklers for punctuation.

They accept submissions through the submission manager submittable. You can submit up to 5 poems at a time.
