How to Submit

Poems must be submitted using the Voices Israel Online Submission Manager, powered by Submittable. This is the only way to submit your poems. Email submissions to any of our team will not be considered.

There is no fee for submitting poems for publication in our Anthology. 

THE SUBMISSION PERIOD HAS NOT YET OPENED. When it does, please follow the instructions below.

  • Submit a maximum of 3 poems on any subject. Poems should not exceed 40 lines including stanza breaks but not including title.

         Please do not try to submit 2 or 3 poems at once.
  • Poems must be submitted by typing or copying them into the space provided in the online form. We no longer accept uploaded files.

         the newsletter or were written at Voices workshops and published in the resulting chapbook of the workshop and/or on the Voices website
         are acceptable.
  • Translations of living poets' poems are acceptable as long as the translations have not been previously published. The translator must have
         the permission of the poet if it is not the same person.
