Poetry Submissions are now closed and will reopen in mid-September 2018 with Jill Jones as guest poetry editor for the February 2019 issue of Plumwood Mountain journal


Submissions Guidelines (please follow these closely; note these may change slightly – please check the guidelines once the call for submissions opens in mid-September)


In one email, send up to 3 poems in Times New Roman 12pt font, 1.5 spacing with each poem as a separate attachment. Each poem should be no longer than 50 lines or 2 pages (where your poem is in a form such that line length is not relevant).

Submissions are read anonymously. Do not include your name or contact details on the poems themselves, and please delete personal information from your electronic file properties. Include email contact details and a brief (50 word) bio in the body of your email. 

Plumwood Mountain also publishers book reviews and photo essays.

Book reviews should be 1000 – 2000 words in length. We do not accept unsolicited book reviews. See our Notes for Reviewers, also the list of available books.

Style for reviews: Times New Roman, left justified, 1.5 spacing, with endnotes, or author-date, and bibliography, following Chicago Manual of Style.

For multimedia, photographic essays, sound recordings and visual art, please first discuss the submission process and formatting with the managing editor at

From December 2017 Plumwood Mountain is no longer considering unsolicited scholarly essays or creative prose. From time to time, there may be calls for such genres. Submissions already in process are still being considered.

Copyright of poems, artwork, articles and reviews remains with the contributor.


For the February 2019 issue, Plumwood Mountain journal will pay Australian-based poets $75 per poem published.

We are grateful for the support of Copyright Agency Cultural Fund. This funding also enables guest editors to commission a small number of poems for the February and August 2019 issues.
