Note: we are currently closed for submissions and cannot read any work that is submitted outside our submission windows.

Submissions for Poetry are now open until 21/11/19.

Please send your work (accompanied by a short biography) to

Poetry / Ideally we would like to publish three poems by each poet in the print issue and so it would be most suitable to send three to four pieces for our consideration. If sending particularly long poems, on the other hand, please restrict your submission to one piece.

Contributors to the print issue all receive a complimentary copy of the anthology as well as a subscription (3 issues plus p&p) to The Lonely Crowd.

Work must be previously unpublished. Please state if you are submitting your work simultaneously. Likewise please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.


We highly recommend reading a copy of The Lonely Crowd before submitting to the magazine. You can purchase The Lonely Crowd here.
