POETRY INTERNATIONAL is one of the oldest and most respected literary journals dedicated to publishing poetry from around the globe. Each issue of the print journal brings together poems, portfolios, and prose representing a rich diversity of countries and languages.

In addition to the print journal, PIOnline also features global conversations about books, poetry, and poetics and an archive of international poets and poems.

PI runs contests throughout the year for poems, chapbooks, broadsides, and more. Please review the guidelines for each contest prior to submitting. See below for submissions that are currently open.

We ask for your patience as we read your work. It may take us up to six months or more. Please know that each entry is carefully considered. Please do not query.

By submitting to Poetry International, submitters agree to receive correspondence about future work and submission opportunities from PI. You can unsubscribe at any time.

The support of our readers allows us to produce one of the most well-known and respected publications devoted to international poetry, available both in print at Poetry International and online at PIOnline.
