the tiny is now accepting submissions through June 15, 2019.

We are most excited about poems that aren't afraid to take risks, that blur or push boundaries, and that challenge systems of power. Additionally, we enjoy poems that don't shy away from emotion, whether its anger, grief, or happiness. Broadly speaking, we like poems that make us feel something. To get a feel for what we publish, we recommend that you read through the available online issues.

Submission Guidelines:

  • If you feel your work is a good fit, please send up to three previously unpublished poems in a single file (word doc, rtf, or pdf) to

  • Please submit only once during a submission cycle.

  • Simultaneous submissions are fine, though we kindly ask that you let us know if your work has been accepted elsewhere.

All rights revert to the authors upon publication. If your work is reprinted, we request that you acknowledge the tiny.

If your work has previously appeared in the tiny, we ask that you wait two submission cycles before sending new work.

We are not able to pay our contributors at this time.
