Poetry instructions

We look for poems that reveal the many facets of life in Utah. We don’t have a limit on style or number of lines (though poems usually range between three and twenty lines). There is also no limit to the number of poems per submission. Poems are printed to coincide with a theme announced in previous issues. Original work is preferred, though occasionally work published previously in anthologies, books or other sources may be considered. Poems may be submitted through our poetry submission form, preferably as a Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF file attachment so that the editor can see the poet’s preferred formatting. We'll often hold poems for possible future use and as such don't often send formal "rejection" letters. If you'd like to withdraw a poem previously submitted, please email editor@utahlifemag.com. Published poets are sent a complimentary copy of the magazine showcasing their work.
