Poetry Guidelines

Call for Submissions: Poetry

The Freeman accepts poetry submissions year-round to be considered for publication in the print magazine and online. 

Although each issue has a theme of its own, poems need not relate to any theme. Our primary criterion is always literary excellence.

Guidelines

  • Payment is $50 per poem, as well as a copy of the issue of publication.
  • Submissions must be unpublished poems or translations only.
  • Simultaneous submissions are acceptable if noted as such.
  • Translations into English are accepted, but either the translator must have documented permission to publish the translations at the time of submission or the poems must be in the common domain per U.S. and international copyright law.
  • Include copies of the poems in the original language with any translation submissions.
  • Send up to 6 unpublished poems, up to 60 lines each (exceptions to the length restriction may be made in rare cases), in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format to Luke Hankins, Poetry Editor,  at poetry@fee.org.
  • You can expect a response within 6 weeks of receipt. If you have not received a response after 6 weeks, you may query by email to the poetry editor.

The Freeman acquires first North American serial rights for each poem or translation published. Rights revert to the author or translator upon publication, though The Freeman must be credited with first publication in any subsequent publication. (e.g., “'Name of Poem' originally appeared in The Freeman.”)

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
