Scotland's sharpest poetry magazine

The submissions window is closed. We'll be inviting submissions for Issue 11 later in the year.

The usual guidelines for the magazine are as follows (please abide by them as they are essential to minimising admin):

* Please do not submit poems for Issue 10 if your work appeared in Issue 9 (Gaelic submissions exempted).
* Send up to three poems (no more) in a single word.doc attachment. 
* Poems should be no more than 40 lines each and previously unpublished. They should be set in 10 or 11 point; no fancy fonts or illustrations, please.
* Your e-mail should include a cover note including the titles of your poems, your address and a brief biography (up to 25 words) written in the third person.
* We rarely enter into critical correspondence about submissions, and try to keep it friendly, but please note the editors’ decisions are final.
* We welcome poems in English, Scots and Gaelic. As a socialist magazine, The Poets’ Republic is committed to equality and encourages submissions from all under-represented sections of society.
* Poems in English and Scots should be e-mailed to
* Poems in Gaelic should be sent to
