Submission Guidelines

The Poetry Project Newsletter

While the Editor solicits most of the features and book reviews we print, if you have written a review of a book that you think is of particular interest to the PPNL readership, please query us at

The Recluse

Submissions for The Recluse will be accepted January 1, 2020 through March 31, 2020. All work must be submitted via email to with “Recluse” in the subject line. Submissions should include between 5-7 pages of work. Please title your word file submission with your first and last name and the word “Recluse.” Cover letters are not required.

The Recluse is published annually each Spring, and edited by the staff of The Poetry Project. For PDFs of past issues see the Publications section of our site. With issue 10, The Recluse moved from print to an online journal.

We suggest that people read an issue or two before submitting work! We are primarily interested in poetry and translations, but will consider other work as well.
