While Moonstone is especially interested in publishing poets from the Philadelphia area, we embrace the entire poetry community regardless of the poet’s home address.

Please submit about twenty-five pages of material.  

Individual poems may have been previously published, but the work as a whole must be new. 

If applicable, please include with your manuscript an acknowledgements page referencing prior publications. 

Simultaneous submissions to other publishers or contests are permitted so long as you promptly notify Moonstone Press if a manuscript is accepted elsewhere.

Mail your manuscript along with a $15 reading fee to:

Moonstone Arts Center

110A S. 13th Street

Philadelphia PA 19107. 

Please note that this fee is nonrefundable.
