Submissions

We believe that a poem should brim with purpose, and rather than mark itself out as Poetry, forge its own identity – compelling and demanding more of us. We believe that the form should carry meaning, and vice versa. The editorial team welcomes dare and rigour, work that destabilises cultural or stylistic classification and boundaries. 


Please read the following with care:

We are always on the look out for new reviewers, as well as interview and other non-fiction proposals which are published on a rolling basis. Please email us your idea / interest and include a short bio or a sample of previous work.

For poetry and fiction please observe the following submission windows:

  • February

  • June

  • October

Please send up to 5 poems, or 2 stories (combined, they should total no more than 3000 words) in a word doc. and a 12pt. standard font. If you are concerned about formatting, please attach a PDF in addition. Please mark fiction submissions as such in the title of your email.

We would especially like to read work from LGBTQ+, poets of colour, and disabled writers.

Please address submissions to the Editor, Georgi Gill. 

Submissions are to be sent to :
interpretershousesubmissions@gmail.com

We aim to respond within 6 weeks of the close of a submission window. If you have not heard after that time, please feel free to drop us an email.

We love for contributors to return, but also seek to keep the magazine diverse and fresh and open to new authors. Therefore we ask contributors to wait out two issues before sending work again. For example, if you were published in Issue 68, you would next be eligible to submit for Issue 71.
