Submissions for ekphrastic issue 2.3 are closed. Responses will be sent in December.
Open reading periods are announced on our Instagram. Follow us there for updates.

  • We accept unpublished work only (poems posted on personal social media are fine!).

  • You must be at least 18 years old to submit.

  • Send one submission of up to three poems. Additional submissions will be deleted unread, so please submit only once per reading period!

  • In line with our mission, we greatly encourage those who have little to no publication history to submit.

  • Simultaneous submissions are encouraged! Please, get your work out there! However, should any poems submitted to Impostor be accepted by another publication, please let us know as soon as possible (and congratulations!). 

  • Impostor does not have the means to pay contributors at this time. This is why submissions are (and always will be!) free.

  • You may be sent suggested edits if your work is chosen for publication. You are not required to approve them, and this will not affect our decision to publish your work. 

  • By accepting publication, you grant Impostor first electronic serial rights. We kindly ask that Impostor be credited with first publication if your poem appears elsewhere in the future.

  • All rights revert back to the author upon publication. Editors, with permission, may use credited excerpts from published pieces for promotional purposes on social media.
