2021 Anthology Submission Guidelines

Eligibility: You must be a current member of the  Marin Poetry Center to submit to the MPC Anthology. You can join or  renew your membership online at

Submission Period: January 20 – March 20, 2021

Editor: Siân Killingsworth

Entries per person: Maximum 3 poems per person. Each  poem should begin on a new page. Individual poems should be no more  than 65 lines, including title, epigram (if any), and any  acknowledgement of prior publication. Poems should be formatted in a  clearly readable font such as Arial or Times New Roman, in 12-point  size.

Please remember that the size of the final printed anthology is  fairly small, so long lines will often end up spilling over to an  indented next line. You may prefer to submit poems with shorter lines.

Theme: This year’s theme is Identity and the Self. This theme is fairly open to interpretation. What does identity mean to you? What is the self? How are identity and self the same or different? What intrigues you about these concepts? 

Submissions are accepted only via Submittable. We do  not accept any email or snail mail submissions. Simultaneous  submissions are permitted. Please notify the Anthology Editor via  Submittable if your poems are accepted elsewhere.

Poems should be included in one attachment as a .doc or .docx file. Do not put any identifying information in the document or in the name of the document.

The Editor will notify entrants of the decision as to which poems  will appear in the Anthology via Submittable soon after the close of the  submission period.
