Beltway Poetry Quarterly


The call for Submissions for Issue 21.3, Art in the Time of Crisis is now closed.

Beltway Poetry Quarterly does not accept unsolicited submissions outside our annual Call for Entries. Please note that Beltway Poetry Quarterly maintains a commitment to publish authors with strong ties to the Washington, DC region, and the surrounding Mid-Atlantic states of Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Delaware. Poetry has no geographic lines, so we do encourage poets from beyond the Beltway to submit as well. Join our local subscribe list or “like” our Facebook page to get direct email notifications.
