Deadlines: Submissions for each issue open once the current issue is published. Deadlines are 2/1 for the spring issue and 8/1 for the fall issue.

The South Dakota State Poetry Society (SDSPS) seeks poems for its upcoming issue of Pasque Petals.

We do not accept previously published work. We do accept simultaneous submissions, but please inform us immediately if your work is accepted somewhere else.

Submit up to five poems as a single document, one poem per page unless they are longer than a page. Include in your submission a brief biography of fifty words or less highlighting your primary connection to South Dakota. Submmissions only accepted via Submittable. If you are a member of SDSPS, you may submit with no fee; if you are not a member, there is a $3 fee.
