Submission Guidelines

Click Here to visit our Submittable page!

As of Issue 5.0 we no longer receive unsolicited email submissions, because we use our Submittable Page for all of our decisions.

Jellyfish Magazine is an online poetry magazine founded in 2009, with the hopes of updating at least twice a year. Its mission is to highlight the most refreshing, shiniest poems that poets have to offer, in keeping with the idea of writing poetry as an ongoing, always new, scary, frustrating, exhilarating process.

1. Please send up to 5 poems in one file, and feel free to introduce yourself as well!

2. We accept simultaneous submissions, provided you let us know as soon as possible if your work is accepted elsewhere by making a note of withdrawals using Submittable's "add a note to this submission" function.

3. All rights revert to the author upon publication in Jellyfish, and your work may then be published afterwards; we just ask that Jellyfish gets recognition as the site of first publication.

4. We also ask that if you have been a previous contributor, please wait at least four issues before resubmitting.

Thanks for sending us your work!
