Poetry Guidelines: America Media actively seeks new poetry of 40 lines or fewer. Line breaks are included in the line count. Many poems we publish address matters of faith and spirituality, but this is not a requirement for publication. We are looking for truthful, dynamic poetry. Please submit no more than three poems at a time. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable.

Questions can be directed to America’s Poetry Editor, Br. Joseph Hoover, S.J., at jhoover@americamagazine.org.
