Beltway Poetry Quarterly is a curated journal, and so we do not accept unsolicited submissions. The only exception to that rule is our themed issues, when we accept poems on the announced theme by poets living or working in the Mid-Atlantic states of DC, MD, VA, WV, and DE.
Thank you to everyone who submitted prose poems for our special upcoming issue. The submission period is now closed. Our guest Editor, Abigail Beckel, will notify all writers by July 1.
Authors are invited to provide information about their readings, publications, and other activities for listing in the Poetry News section. Information should be submitted any time in the month prior to an event or publication to email@example.com. Please note that listings of Readings and Performances only include events in the greater Washington DC area, although we cover a larger geographic region for listings of Competitions, Grants, Calls for Entries, Workshops, and Special Events (covering all of DC, MD, VA, WV, and DE).
