Journal Submissions

PHANTOM is currently accepting poetry submissions, as well as queries for book reviews. We read year-round and publish quarterly.




1. Please send 3-5 poems in a single Word .doc (or .docx) attachment ONLY

2. Please include a cover letter and brief bio

3. Please write “LAST NAME / POETRY SUBMISSION / DATE” in the title line.

For example: “SMITH / POETRY SUBMISSION / SEPT. 4, 1987”


We do not accept previously published work.

Simultaneous submissions are just fine.

If your poems get picked up elsewhere, please send us a notice of withdrawal, or add a note to your Submittable submission. Contact us at: editors.phantom(@)

Note: if you have been previously published in Phantom, please wait two full issues before submitting again.

Expect to hear from us within 4-6 months. We appreciate your support and for the opportunity to read your work.
