Perihelion is published three times each year. We are currently accepting unsolicited submissions.
Submissions are via e-mail only. Send two to six poems at a time. We accept simultaneous submissions as long as they are indicated as such and we are notified immediately upon acceptance elsewhere. Your submission should include a brief cover letter with a brief biographical note. Poems should be individually typed either single- or double-spaced, one poem per page. Unsolicited book reviews, essays, and criticism are considered. Please do not send multiple submissions of the same genre, and do not send another submissions until you hear about the first. Additional submissions will be returned unread or disregarded.
