Thanks for your interest in publishing your work on One Sentence Poems.  Please note that we share this Submittable site with our mother publication, Right Hand Pointing. So, don't be confused if you get email from us with Right Hand Pointing, or Ambidextrous Bloodhound in the subject line. It's us!

One Sentence Poems is edited by Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco, Natalie Wolf, and Dale Wisely.

We publish one-sentence poems in issues that appear twice a year. 

We accept submissions March 15-May 1 for our Summer Issue and August 15-Oct 31 for our Winter Issue.  


  • Your poem must be one true, grammatical sentence. Use correct punctuation and capitalization.
  • The poem may be titled, or not. We prefer a title. It is okay to make the title the beginning of a sentence and the body of the email the end of the sentence. 
  • Start with an uppercase letter. End with a terminal punctuation mark. (But don't die.)
  • Any line format, but at least one line break. (2 lines, or many lines. 1 stanza or multiple stanzas. Should be left-justified, however. Some idents ok, but we can't handle highly scattered formats. Include at least one line break.)

Avoid using multiple sentences separated by semi-colons. And really, no semi-colons. We're really looking for sentences and not constructions that strain the meaning of that term. 

We also encourage non-English sentences, accompanied by English translation. If we accept your poem in another language, we will publish the translation with it. We'd love to see more translations.

For a complete submission we'll need:

  • your one-sentence poem(s). You may include up to 4 in a single submission. Please do not send more than four.
  • your brief ONE SENTENCE  bio. If you'd like for us to add a link in your bio, we're glad to do so. The bio should in the 3rd person, one sentence only, and no more than about 35 words.

Thanks! We look forward to seeing your work.
