CPR General Submission Guidelines
Cider Press Review, a journal of contemporary poetry, seeks to discover and publish the best of new poetry written in English—writing that showcases craft and substance, poetry that has something to say and says it beautifully. CPR actively seeks new original work and translations into English from both established and emerging poets. We especially encourage submissions from writers who are female, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ identifying, and/or otherwise from communities traditionally underrepresented in U.S. literary magazines and journals. Our only criterion is excellence.
The editors read submissions of individual poems from February 15 to May 31 each year, and full manuscripts (in conjunction with the CPR Annual Book Award and Editors Prize) between September 1 and November 30 and again between April 1 and June 30 each calendar year. Short reviews of full-length poetry collections are considered year-round.
