Poetry (prose poems)

Min pieces: 1

Max pieces: 2

We seek prose poems. (We do not publish lined poetry.) We do not have a rigid word limit, but we tend to favor shorter, punchier pieces, rarely more than 400 words.

How to submit

  • Processs


  • Cover letter

    Cover letters are not essential, but please provide a brief (around 35 words) third-person bio in your email. We reserve the right to edit bios.

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    Do not supply line breaks. We are looking for blocks of text. Hey. We see your right pinky creeping toward that RETURN key. Don't do it! Save yourself! Ok, we are not necessarily opposed to 1 paragraph break but prefer a single block of text. At what point will these guidelines have beaten that point to death?

  • Author's rights

    If your work is accepted, you agree to give Unbroken first serial electronic rights to your work and nonexclusive electronic and print rights in perpetuity. This means we can archive your work on our website indefinitely and include it in potential future publications and anthologies. Otherwise, all rights revert to the author upon publication. If you publish the work elsewhere in the future, we ask that credit be given to Unbroken for first publication.

Unbroken is a quarterly online journal that seeks to showcase prose poems and poetic prose, both from established and emerging voices. We desire to give the block, the paragraph, the unlineated prose, a new place to play.
