Submissions & Contact Me

Poethead was conceived as a woman-friendly publishing space. I welcome work from all poets regardless of their age, ethnicity or their level of experience. I am especially interested in publishing experimental, surreal and translated poetry work. The site’s three indices are non-hierarchical and poets of great experience regularly jostle with new poets as a matter of Poethead policy. We must trust that the reader will find the poet. The submitting poet should understand that this is a platform for a diverse range of readers as well as for poets.

Those poets interested in sending work to an Index Of Women Poets  may email me with 5-6 poems in a single document (formats accepted are: .docx, .doc, and .rtf , or you can paste your work into the body of your email). Please send me a short biographical note and a suitable image to accompany your work. I accept series, sequences, visual poetry, long form work, translated work, audio and video links.

My readers have a wide range of tastes in poetry and many have been following the site for 9 years. I am delighted to have such a loyal and interested readership who have been here all along. 

I do accept previously published poems once the journal (and journal’s editor) is properly attributed.

Many thanks, Christine Murray
