Poetose's mission is to contribute to the literary landscape of Boston and beyond to make the world a more beautiful home for us all. We believe in spreading the love and creating beautiful things.

Poetose publishes works of poetry, prose, and art, and also sells bookish items. We love work that lives at the intersections of everything. Poetose is a neologism combining the words "poetry" and "prose." We are interested in poetry + prose with an emphasis on the toes.

As writer Derek Walcott said, "What I mean is to be barefoot in spirit."  We wish to explore the ground between fields and disciplines. We appreciate language and the book as beautiful objects. We celebrate the exploration of our collective toes. Fittingly, the Poetose logo is a toe print. 

We are open to submissions to be published both online and in print. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere.

If you would like to stay in touch and receive updates, sign up for our newsletter. We are on Instagram @PoetoseOfficial, Threads, Facebook, and TikTok.

Poetose welcomes submissions of poetry, prose poetry, hybrid work, cartoons, interviews, and reviews for publication online. See previously published works on our website at www.poetose.com.

If you would like to submit handwritten work, consider using one of the two templates on our webpage, to be considered for a handwritten anthology on the art of living which is in the works. However, you are encouraged to submit work without first handwriting it, as this does take time and labor. 

Regardless of whether you submit handwritten work, each published piece must eventually be accompanied by imagery of some sort as the published work is linked to along with all other digital publications from this Digital page.

Up to 10 files or pieces may be attached in the form; if applicable, please label files so it is clear which image belongs with which work (or you can also include image + accompanying writing in the same document).
