What to Know:

  • There is no reading fee.
  • It will feature new talent and established poets.
  • It will be divided in two sections: PAIN and RENEWAL.
  • It will be sold in printed and digital formats.
  • It will be marketed to a wide community of poets.

SUBMITTING YOUR POETRY

We prefer new work, but feel free to send poetry that has previously been published, so long as the right have been reverted back to you. As a note, Vita Brevis tends to favor traditional poetry structure over those with highly complicated indentations and line breaks. Scroll through our past publications to get an understanding of the Vita Brevis style.

HOW TO SUBMIT TO THE POETRY ANTHOLOGY

  1. Collect up to six poems that match the theme of pain or renewal:

    Only submit poetry that clearly matches the theme of pain or the theme of renewal. If you have poetry that doesn’t match this theme, you can submit it to our online magazine. Also, make sure you look over our Terms and Conditions.

  2. Compose an email to:

    -) Send an email to briangeiger@vitabrevisliterature.com
    -) Please make the subject line “Anthology Submission”

  3. Include the following information:

    1) Your author or pen name
    2) A third-person bio shorter than 60 words (keep it simple)
    3) Up to six poems in the text of an email or a PDF or Word doc.
    4) Label each poem under either a “Pain” or “Renewal” theme
