Feel Free To Submit Your Work To Fish Drum:


... poetry, prose, fiction, essays, what-have-you, artwork, scores, cartoons, etc. Just send them along with an SASE. Send three to five poems if possible. We are particularly interested in poetry, prose and translations concerning the practice of Zen. We publish chapbooks, but solicit these from authors. We send prepublication galleys. The normal payment is two copies. We review books or chapbooks of poetry in long essays and/or capsule reviews and are open to unsolicited reviews.

Poets may also send books for review consideration.

Response time is variable. We aim for three months, but we like to read all submitted work carefully. Please be patient.

Fish Drum acquires the first North American Serial rights to the material published (unless otherwise discussed). All rights revert to the authors upon publication. Please feel free to republish at that time, however Fish Drum Magazine would appreciate being credited. Upon publication the author will receive two complimentary copies and any additional copies desired for half price.

Please no e-mail or simultaneous submissions!
