Foothill: a journal of poetry is seeking submissions of poetry. Directed by students at Claremont Graduate University, Foothill: a journal of poetry is a biannual print and online poetry journal that features the work of emerging poets enrolled in graduate programs across the United States. The journal is sponsored by the English department in the School of Arts and Humanities at Claremont Graduate University, which is also home to the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Awards and Kate Tufts Discovery Awards. As the Tufts poetry awards honor and support poets ascending the difficult beginning and middle summits of their careers, Foothill promotes those still laboring through the apprenticeship of graduate study.
Submissions of up to five unpublished poems composed in any poetic genre or form are welcome from poets actively enrolled in a graduate program located in the United States. Submissions are read year-round and we accept simultaneous submissions. We regret we cannot pay for work, however, authors will receive a free copy of the print journal. In your cover letter please include your name, e-mail address, title(s) of poem(s) submitted, the name of the university and program you are enrolled in, and a brief description of your field of study and research interests (to be included alongside your work). Accepted poets are also invited to send audio or video files of them performing their work, which will be embedded alongside their poems on our website. Send your poetry as a Word ".doc" file attachment to foothill@...
with "poetry submission" written in the heading. Please allow three to four months for a response, though you will usually hear from us much sooner. Thank you and we look forward to reading your work.
