Poetry Guidelines: America Media actively seeks new poetry of 30 lines or fewer. Many poems we publish address matters of faith and spirituality, but this is not a requirement for publication. We are looking for authentic, truthful, dynamic poetry. Please submit no more than three poems at a time. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable. 

Since formatting is often critical to the integrity of a poem and its presentation, we ask that you submit your poem in both word and .pdf formats. Questions can be directed to America's Poetry Editor, Br. Joseph Hoover, S.J. at jhoover@americamagazine.org.
