Lantern Review seeks original poems and poems translated into English for the forthcoming (2019) season of its magazine.

  • Guidelines for original poems: Collaborative or individual; lyric, experimental, or hybrid forms—all are welcome! Please submit no more than four poems at a time (eight pages maximum). All poems should be included in a single file. See our general guidelines for more information on simultaneous submissions and rights. For collaborative pieces, please submit under the name of only one artist but include all collaborators’ names in the "Description" field, in your cover letter, and in the manuscript itself. 
  • Guidelines for translations: We seek new translations of poems into English. Please submit no more than four translations at a time (eight pages maximum). Indicate the name of the original poet as well as your own in the “Artist Name(s)” box. Unless the poem you have translated is in the public domain, please also make sure that you have previously secured all necessary permissions from the owner of the original piece's copyright. Submitting your translation to us serves as confirmation that you hold the proper permissions.
