Indie Poetry Please! Podcast: Submission Guidelines

Indie Poetry Please! Submission Guidelines

Each month, I read some poetry I’ve written around a particular theme and introduce poetry by three indie poets writing on similar topics. My aim is to introduce listeners to some of the most exciting, inspiring, and dynamic voices working in poetry today.

This program broadcasts on

  • Instagram TV, Patreon, SoundCloud and through the Alliance of Independent Authors’ networks.
  • Syndicated through iTunes, Stitcher, Player.FM, Overcast, Pocket Casts, Twitch and many other outlets.

Below you can find the Indie Poetry Please! submission guidelines: how to register, how to follow the podcast on Patreon, and how to submit your poems to future callouts.

Indie Poetry Please! Submission Guidelines: Please Note

  • Indie poetry please! submission guidelines. Pic Orna RossIndie Poetry Please! is not an open mic. Various considerations go into the selection process, including our theme of the month, getting a spread of genres, what has been previously broadcast, and many other factors.
  • Patrons have priority but neither submission nor patronage guarantee broadcast
  • Should your poems be selected for the podcast, we may also broadcast any details you submit through the registration form, or in correspondence, unless requested otherwise.
  • Persevere! If not selected one month, please don’t let that keep you from trying again. Our slots are limited and perseverance may well be rewarded.
  • Even if not selected for broadcast, your poems will be enjoyed on the Patreon page by many other poets, by my patrons and other followers.

Good luck!  I very much look forward to reading your work.
