Submit Your Original Poetry

The Phi Kappa Phi Forum welcomes submissions of original, previously unpublished poetry that fits the theme of each edition. Submissions must be under 40 lines and are currently being accepted for the following editions. Poets can submit 1-3 poems as a single submission.

Poems will be selected to appear in the print version of the magazine, though others may appear online. Selected poets will receive five free copies of the Forum in which their verse appears. Previous winners must wait one year before entering again. 

To submit a poem, click here and complete the submission form. You will be asked to include the poem(s) as a .doc or .docx file.
