Poetry Salzburg Review Submission Guidelines

Poetry Salzburg Review publishes poems, translations, interviews, essays and reviews of recent collections of poetry. Our intention is to publish the best available writing from a variety of writers.

All submissions should be typed and on one side of the paper only. Make sure that your name is on each page of the manuscript. Please include a bio/biographical note (up to 100 words). Please send your submission together with a self-addressed envelope (if possible with an International Reply Coupon) to the following address:

Poetry Salzburg Review
Dr. Wolfgang Görtschacher
University of Salzburg
Department of English and American Studies
Erzabt-Klotz-Str. 1

AUSTRIA

We accept e-mail submissions for PSR only if you provide us with your postal address, a covering letter and your bio/bibliographical note. As Poetry Salzburg Review is a bi-annual magazine, authors are requested to send us only one submission (4-6 poems) per issue.

Please send your submission as one single Txt or Word-file. Please give us up to two months for our reply.

We do not read simultaneous submissions! We do not publish texts that have been published elsewhere (this also includes Internet magazines, homepages, and blogs)! We do not read (review) websites and do not consider work published there.

If poems have been previously published, the editorial board reserves the right to ban the poet from our future issues.

As a matter of policy, we do not discuss the reasons for our editorial decisions.

We gladly accept submissions from past contributors; our policy, however, is not to publish work by the same author in consecutive issues.

We do not consider translations if the original texts are not submitted together with the translations. We also ask translators to submit bio/bibliographival notes for both the translated poet and the translator.

By submitting their translations the translators agree that they have sorted out any potential copyright problems with the author of the original texts, their publishers, their agents and literary executors.

We do not consider unsolicited reviews or review requests under any circumstances. The only guarantee we have that reviews are objective and unbiased is that we solicit the reviews from qualified reviewers. In fact, a request to be the reviewer of a book, and even more the submission of an already-written review, is an indication that you are not an appropriate reviewer for it. We are always looking for qualified reviewers. Send a curriculum vitae and some reviews that have already been published in literary magazines.

If work is accepted, we always try to send out the proofs of the poems / review-essay as soon as possible. We do not publish a single line if it is not approved by the author. If poets do not return the proofs of their work within a month we will NOT print their poems / review-essay.

Due to the amount and high quality of work we receive, potential contributors are strongly encouraged to read the magazine prior to submitting their work.

All contributors are going to receive a complimentary copy of the issue that contains their work. However, we would like to point out that Poetry Salzburg Review lost its small grant from the Austrian government at the end of 2011. This is why we would also ask our contributors to support the magazine by either taking out a subscription or by ordering a gift subscription for one of their friends.
