Poetry submissions are accepted in hard copy only. Please send all poetry submissions to:
Peter Cooley, Poetry Editor
Christianity & Literature
Department of English, Norman Mayer 122
New Orleans, LA 70118
The poetry editor looks for poems that are clear and surprising. They should have a compelling sense of voice, formal sophistication (though not necessarily rhyme and meter), and the ability to reveal the spiritual through concrete images.
Once accepted, you will be asked to submit your poem or poems to ScholarOne Manuscripts here: https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/christlit
Please be sure to include all relevant contact information along with a poem or poems: name, address, and especially your email.
Poetry submissions will not be acknowledged or returned unless they are accompanied by a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope) with sufficient return postage.
