Half Drunk Muse Poetry

Half Drunk Muse accepts erotic poetry.

According to editor Sarah Miller, "We're not interested in anything gratuitous, hateful, or derogatory, but a well crafted and surprising erotic poem would catch our attention."

General submission rules are as follows:

They do not accept work that has appeared online but will consider work that has appeared previously in print. However, reprints are not eligible for the Penny Jar Prize.

Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as you notify us immediately if the poem is accepted elsewhere.

Send three to five poems in the body of an email to "Less than three poems is ok; more than five makes us break out in a rash and sends us into the hospital."

Attachments will be deleted unread. If you really have to use an attachment, you should contact them via their website.

They also accept book reviews, essays on poetry, and interviews with poets. When sending unsolicited reviews, be sure to include all vital information on the book under review. If interested in writing essays or conducting interviews, please send a detailed query first. All mail, including requests to have books reviewed, should be directed to

For more information, please read their submission information.

Compensation: Exposure, and The Penny Jar Prize annual cash prize.
