Sorry for the delay in getting a new issue of Fruita Pulp up. Life can get crazy and passion projects put on hold. Unfortunately, the hiatus will continue for the time being. Apologies if you have submitted to us in this last reading period and have not heard back. We are grateful for all the contributors and readers. Hope to be back soon. Obey the emerging form.


Fruita Pulp loves poetry.

We also love essays on poetics and creative process, interviews with poets and publishers, reviews, marginalia/ephemera, digital chapbooks and, really, just about anything poem-like.

Due to the time that it takes to carefully read and consider every submission, we encourage you to read the following tips on how to make our job easier and more efficient…

Submissions should be submitted in a single Word Document (.doc, .docx, etc). Please include a byline as well as any bio information and links to relevant material. We enjoy promoting your books, blogs and websites to our readers. In addition, we love to publish a photo with every poem or piece we publish. This can be an author photo, something that compliments the piece, or piece of artwork, etc.

Please include 2-5 poems per submission, in a single document. We are open to longer submissions (sequence/set, epic, crown of sonnets, etc)… just make note of why it’s important to you to include the larger body of work. The title of you submission document should include your full name.

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. Please notify us if you have  a poem accepted elsewhere.

Please be patient with us, as we read on regular basis, but select poems only once every couple months. If it has been longer than two months, your submission is probably still under consideration. Due to the ongoing acceptance of submissions, please only inquire after 4 months, in which time two issues will have been published.

Free digital chapbook submissions should be attached as PDF’s. Any length welcome.

Please send email submissions to The subject of the email should read: FP Submission – Your Name – Date. Cover letters are encouraged, but not completely necessary.

Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to pay.
