PEN Poetry Series

Once a week, the PEN Poetry Series publishes work by emerging and established writers from coast to coast. The series is edited by Danniel Schoonebeek, along with a rotating group of guest editors. Subscribe to the PEN Poetry Series mailing list and have poems delivered to your email as soon as they’re published. Submissions are currently closed, but please feel free to familiarize yourself with our submission guidelines. Due to the extremely high volume of submissions we receive for the series, we are unable to respond to each individual submission, though you are welcome to follow up with us at [email protected] about your submission.
