FlyPaper Poetry issues are released biannually online and in print.
FPM is 100% committed to changing the culture in publishing and is especially interested in work from PoC, queer, non-binary, women, neurodivergent, and other underrepresented groups in the literary world. FPM also loves receiving submissions from poets with some relation to Ohio.
Submissions can be sent using our Submittable portal: https://flypapermagazine.submittable.com/submit
Specific guidelines found on Submittable page. However if Submittable proves inaccessible send up to five poems in a single Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FPM believes writers should be paid for their work and are able to pay $5/ poem, we wish it could be more and as FPM continues to grow, we are confident the amount we’re able to pay writers will grow as well.
