Submit

CURIOUS is looking for poems and photographs.

Submit up to 3 poems as MS Word files. One poem to a page. Poems can be of any form or genre and in English and in any Filipino language, provided that the latter includes an English translation. In addition, each poem must not be longer than 50 lines. Please include a short bio-note of about 3 sentences.

Submit up to 3 photographs as JPG files, 720 X 960 pixels, with a resolution of at least 300ppi. We don’t encourage putting watermarks on your photos but if you feel the need to put one, please place it on the lower right hand corner of the photo. Please consider that each photo will serve as backdrop to a poem. As with the poets, please include a short bio-note of about 3 sentences in your submissions.

When your poem/ photograph gets accepted, you are giving CURIOUS non-exclusive subsequent publication rights. This means you still own your poem/ photograph but we get to keep it on the site (and other related poetry anthology) for as long as the site exists. You will always be given full credit for your work.

Please send us only works that you own the rights to. Please don’t send us works that you have submitted elsewhere. Works that have been previously published is acceptable.

Unfortunately, we are unable to give our poets and photographers monetary compensation for accepted work. All we can give you is full credit (your name, website, and short bio), publication, and exposure. What we offer is a platform for your creative voice to be heard and for your poem and pictures to be seen. It’s not a bad deal, right?

Email us at journal.curious@gmail.com. Subjects should be written as, for example, Poetry Submission-MDG (poet’s initials) for poems and Photography Submission-MDG (photographer’s initials) for pictures. We will try to respond within 4 weeks. If you haven’t heard from us after this period, please feel free to email us using the subject Inquiry to ask about the status of your submission.
