Connecticut River Review is the official poetry journal of the Connecticut Poetry Society, the only statewide poetry society in Connecticut. CPS was founded in 1975 and is a member of The National Federation of State Poetry Societies (NFSPS). Connecticut River Review solicits poetry nationally and internationally for publication in the annual journal during a reading period of January 1 – April 15. The journal also publishes winning poems from several CPS poetry contests.
CPS members as well as non-members are invited to submit poems for consideration. Book reviews are solicited by the editor. The editors are sole arbiters of which poems to publish. In general, the selection standard is excellence in poetic form. Poems may be on any topic. The editors welcome new voices as well as celebrated poets. Poets published in CRR are selected from all over the country as well as abroad. CRR accepts simultaneous submissions, but asks for immediate notice of acceptance elsewhere.
Submissions should be unpublished original poems, no translations, typed, single spaced, with complete contact information on each poem. CPS members as well as non-members are invited to submit poems for consideration. Book reviews are solicited by the editor.
Please go to www.connecticutriverreview.submittable.com and upload a single document containing your poems (one poem per page). You will have room on the submission form for a brief bio. Send 3-5 poems.
