Because we have a rather large backlog of poetry submissions, we are closing the reading period early this year, on April 1. We will open again on August 1.
We consider poetry of any style. We strongly encourage you, however, to be familiar with the poetry Colorado Review has previously published; visit our web site to read selected poems that we have published or to purchase sample issues.
Please limit poetry submissions to no more than five poems with a maximum of 15 pages at a time. Place all poems in a single document.
If for any
reason you’d like to withdraw a poem, please send us a message through
Submittable. Please do not send requests to remove poems from your manuscript
through Submittable’s “Open Editing” option.
