Two-hundred New Mexico Poems, a blog celebrating New Mexico's centennial through poetry, is now accepting previously unpublished submissions of poetry.
Send 1-3 poems of 40 lines or fewer which focus on the Land of Enchantment. Suitable themes include: New Mexico history (especially between the years of 1912 and 2012), environment and place, culture, and personal significance of the region. Poems may be formal or free verse and utilize narrative or lyric voice. Submissions are open to all poets regardless of residence, just as long as the poems are clearly connected to New Mexico. Poems written in Spanish will be considered as long as they are accompanied by an accurate English translation. Submissions are open until 200 poems have been selected.
Please send unpublished work. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know if your poem(s) has been accepted elsewhere.
Please do not send multiple submissions. Wait until you hear from us about your manuscript before sending additional poems. Submissions which do no meet minimum criteria will not be considered.
Email your typed submissions with line count for each poem and 50 word bio as a
word document to:
