Submitting your polished work to Viewless Wings opens the door to your poetry (and your voice!) being featured on the Viewless Wings Poetry Podcast and published on We recommend listening to (and reading) successful submissions from other poets (Six Poets Recite and Moon Inspired Poems), and our interviews with accomplished poets including A.E. StallingsSafia Elhillo, Yanyi, Olivia GatwoodRegina Harris BaiocchiCutter Streeby and more. We read all submissions.


The best submissions will will appear on a future episode of the Viewless Wings Poetry Podcast (read by you) and published on A recent episode of contributed poems is available here.

The Viewless Wings Poetry Podcast features interviews with poets and artists including Safia Elhillo, Dana Gioia, Yanyi, A.E. Stallings, Olivia Gatwood, Donald Platt and more. Monthly we dedicate an episode to submitted poems read by the authors - that could be you.

Poetry is reviewed on a rolling basis. We accept submissions via Submittable only. Send up to three poems (in a single document) per submission, to a maximum of six poems per year. We do not consider work that has appeared elsewhere (this includes all Web sites and personal blogs). Poems need to be originally written in English. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please notify us promptly, using your Submittable account, if a poem has been accepted elsewhere.

We know waiting for an answer is painful. We read all submissions and strive to respond in under two months of your submission. We look forward to reading your creations!
