Submission Guidelines

Muzzle Magazine publishes poetry, interviews, and book reviews. We are actively seeking submissions in poetry and are also open to queries about reviews and interviews.

Only previously unpublished work will be considered for publication. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. 

  • Poetry Submissions
                Please send 3-5 poems at a time. Include all poems in one DOC or PDF file. 
                Make sure that your name does not appear anywhere in the document 
                or submission title; our editors like to view submissions blindly. 

  • Want a Muzzle Editor to Review Your Poetry Book?
                Muzzle reviews poetry books that were published within the past two years. 
                If you are a poet or publisher and want us to consider reviewing your recent 
                poetry publication, please query us via email at
                If the collection seems interesting to us, we will ask you to send a hard copy
                to one of our book reviewers.
