Speckled Trout Review: A Call For Submissions!

  • Deadline info: Deadline: April 15, 2020
  • Genre: Poetry
  • Type: Magazine

The editors of Speckled Trout Review are reading poetry submissions for the Spring 2020 issue. We like good storytelling in poems metaphorically rich and ripe with imagery, poems in which every word counts, poems that look like poems. Good rhythm is nice, too. However, abstract is not our thing; neither is overt political stuff. Appalachian poets are welcome here, in addition to many other subjects, styles, and poets. The deadline for Spring 2020 is April 15. Specific submission guidelines can be found at, in addition to the Fall 2020 issue.


We welcome any/all Feedback.
