Below is a list of the PSNY submission opportunities currently available! But we are always experimenting with new programs and initiatives, so be sure to follow us here on Submittable or over on Instagram to stay up to date on other PSNY submission opportunities as they come up. 

How to Poet is a blog designed to shamelessly attract attention to poetry. Using devices typically reserved for online “clickbait” like listicles, how-to’s, trends, hashtags, hyperlinks, hyperbole and sensational sensationalism, the poets at The Poetry Society of New York are having a little fun: creating literary content, criticism, poetry book reviews and entertainment that reaches outside the established poetry community to encourage wider audiences for poets and their work. 

Submit your proposed poetry-related article(s) here, keeping to a word length of between 350-600 words.

We publish articles every Monday. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. Feel free to contact us with questions! 

We look forward to reading your submissions!

BIPOC Creatives: apply to teach a Free Verse workshop today!  

The Poetry Society of New York's Monthly Free Poetry Workshops for BIPOC Creatives—also known as our Free Verse Initiative—are workshops taught by and for Black, Indigenous, and other Persons of Color with an interest in poetry. We invite folks to connect in this safe, generative, BIPOC-centered space: to share work, experiences, and discourse. At the end of every workshop, we welcome the sharing of resources, such as literature, community events, and grants available for application. Respectfully and consensually connecting with other members outside of the space is encouraged. 

This community space is designed specifically for the BIPOC experience, and as such is only open to members of the BIPOC community. Attendees of our Monthly Free Workshops for BIPOC Creatives receive a 50% off discount code for our Weekly Virtual Workshops!
