The Michigan Poet

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Submission Guidelines 

The Michigan Poet publishes poetry from poets living in Michigan and distributes exclusively to Michigan communities. We believe it is important for people to see and hear poets within their own community, so we only consider work from poets currently living in Michigan.

The Michigan Poet seeks poems less than 25 lines that are accessible to readers of all ages and interest levels. Poems should be appropriate for all-ages and suitable for school environments, so poems that are vulgar for the sake of vulgarity are non-starters.

Submit up to three poems in one document please.
