Submission Guidelines

jubilat accepts poetry, visual art, and essays on poetry and poetics.

Submissions should include up to four poems totaling no more than 10 pages. There is no strict limit for essays, but something in the neighborhood of 1,500-3,000 words is probably ideal.

We accept simultaneous submissions; we ask that you let us know quickly if work you've sent to us will be published somewhere else. Individuals are encouraged to submit no more than three times a year. We do not reprint published material.

From October through December, we charge a reading fee of $3 per poetry submission (no fee for art). We have no-fee submission periods in September and January.

If you are unable to submit your work online or experience any difficulties with the submission manager system, please let us know at

We recommend potential contributors read a copy of the magazine before submitting. Back issues are available at a discount. For a sample copy, click here to order with your credit card, or send $6 to:
