About Poetry South

Poetry South is a national journal of poetry published annually by Mississippi University for Women (formerly published by Yazoo River Press). The views expressed herein, except for editorials, are those of the writers, not the editors or Mississippi University for Women. Poetry South considers submissions year round. Submissions received after the deadline of July 15 will be considered for the following year. No previously published material will be accepted. Poetry South is not responsible for unsolicited submissions and their loss.

In 2016, Poetry South's longtime editor, John Zheng, asked The W to take over the magazine, starting with Issue 8. John continues to edit Valley Voices and the Journal of Ethnic American Literature and remains on the masthead as Contributing & Advisory Editor along with Angela Ball, Carolyn Elkins, and Ted Haddin.

Subscription rates are $10 for one year, $18 for two years; the foreign rate is $15 for one year, $30 for two years. All rights returned to the authors after publication. We request Poetry South be credited with initial publication. Sumbissions and subscriptions may be made through Submittable. Queries and subscriptions sent by mail should be addressed to: The Editor, Poetry South, MFA Creative Writing, 1100 College St., W-1634, Columbus MS 39701.
