Red Wolf Editions is an online poetry space.
It is the publishing imprint of Red Wolf Journal. The journal features thematic poetry collections. Selected poems will be posted on that site during the submission periods of the current thematic issue (typically March to August for the Fall issue, and September to February for the Spring issue). The journal posts selected poems and then a compilation twice a year, in March and in September.
You may check out the submissions page for the current issue’s theme.
There’re two concurrent ones this time, the first with the theme of “Journeying” and the second’s called “The Coronavirus Poetry Issue”, if you are interested to submit.
Red Wolf Editions is an openly accessible platform that you may wish to consider for getting your work out there. Our digital collections are available in PDF format, published under the Red Wolf imprint. We believe that poems have value, speaking to our souls and being a living testament of it, be it individual or collective. They are, if you like, the result of the soul’s work and the soul’s journey.
Our archive for past collections can be found here.
Besides the thematic collections, we invite you to submit poem manuscripts. The following are the categories of our digital poetry collections. All will be PDF issues, no print copies:
a) Maxi collection – more than 30 poems. We will provide a full editorial blurb.
b) Mini size collection – 20 poems or more (up to 30). An editorial blurb may or may not be provided. Probably a few sentences thing.
c) Nano size collection – 10 poems or more (up to 20). No editorial blurb, probably a one sentence thing.
Please note the following:
1) Your poetry collection will be published as a PDF issue at this site, available for all to download for free. We do not do print copies at the moment. If you want a printed book, do not submit here. If you want to showcase a very small selection of your poetry, it may be worthwhile to submit to test the market, to see if a digital poetry collection of yours will stand the test here. Please do not submit if you intend to withdraw your submission later.
2) If you’re submitting your work here, do not submit it elsewhere. You allow three months for consideration for a maxi collection; two months for a mini collection; and one month for a nano collection. Please respect the time and effort put in to consider your work. If you do not hear within the times stated above, it means we’re not taking up your work and then you may submit elsewhere.
3) Please cite publications where your poems have previously been published. However the majority of poems in the collection has to be new, unpublished material. You may email your manuscript for our consideration at redwolfeditions AT gmail DOT com.
4) If you have a cover artwork proposal, kindly submit it together with your manuscript. If not we will propose a cover, and the final artwork shall be at our discretion. We will not be laboring too much over the cover artwork as we’re not professionally paid to do so.
Thank you for submitting your work to Red Wolf Editions.
