Submission Information

Submissions open annually on the 1st September and will be accepted up to 30th November 

foam:e aims for publication at the beginning of March annually.

You are welcome to submit up to 6 poems through our online submission form when submissions open.  We look forward to considering your poems for our next edition.

Submissions received before September will not be looked at, please do not email them in. 

We prefer new, fresh, current work. The poems must be your own work, not currently submitted to any other journals. If they have been previously published, please provide publication details so we can acknowledge them. Include this information in the submission.

Before submitting to foam:e, please explore our previous issues.

For transparency, we wish to highlight that publication is unpaid. The editors work on a voluntary basis also. We will announce any changes to payment and funding here in the future. Thank you for your support of this publication.

Books for review

We only review book-length works of poetry by Australian writers.

foam:e no longer receives books pending review but instead compiles a list of available books to be shown to prospective reviewers. This will hopefully prevent books being sent when there is no available reviewer. Please contact us at to have a book added to the list. We will then notify you of where to send your book if it is selected for review.
