Poems & Plays

  • After 21 years of publication, Poems & Plays is currently on hiatus. No submissions are being accepted at this time.

Poems & Plays is a journal of poetry and drama published annually in the spring. We welcome submissions of poems and short plays during our reading period of October-November. During the same period we also accept manuscripts of 20-24 pages for the Tennessee Chapbook Prize. Any combination of poems or plays, or a single play, is eligible. The winning entry is published as an interior chapbook in the subsequent issue. To enter, send manuscript with acknowledgments, a. s.a.s.e, and $15 (for reading fee and copy of issue). Correspondence, subscriptions, and submissions are welcome and should be addressed to the editor:
