DIALOGIST is an online platform for diversity through discourse. Be clear. Be dynamic. Start a conversation.

And send us your best. We accept poetry and art across various mediums. Please follow our guidelines when submitting:

Poetry: Submit up to five poems of any length. Include all submissions within a single Word document, with a poem per page. Submissions should be paginated—to include an identifying header (name and email address), and be in 12 point Times New Roman.

We accept only original, unpublished work (i.e. poems cannot have appeared/be currently featured in print or digitally—to include personal sites, blogs, etc.).

Upon selection and publication, we retain exclusive publishing rights to your work for 90 days. After 90 days, we release all publishing rights back to you, although your work will remain active online.

Art: Submit up to five files for initial review. Images must be at or within the range of 800-2,000 pixels, in any direction, and free of unintentional visible compression/digital artifacts. If an image is accepted, we may later request a larger, print-quality version in a lossless format.

Submissions (to include GIF, audio, and video) must be accompanied by a brief project statement. For review and publication, video submissions require sustained external hosting, and should be sent as a link.

Art submissions are not subject to criteria regarding prior publication. For purposes other than initial web publication, we will not exercise nor retain publishing rights for any art—unless specifically requested and agreed upon, via prior consent.

Submit in only one category at a time. We will not honor multiple submissions. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, although we request that you immediately inform us if a piece is selected elsewhere (for administrative convenience, this should be done through the note feature in Submittable). Compensation is not provided.

DIALOGIST is self-funded and does not charge for submissions. While we make every effort to respond as promptly as possible, please do not query until 60 days have passed. Submit no more than once every 90 days. Past contributors are advised to resubmit no sooner than one year from date of publication, per category.

For additional questions, contact our managing editor at: editor@dialogist.org. (Note: do not use this email to submit your work—visit the link below. Unsolicited work sent to the above address will not be considered.)
