We’re looking for great poetry. It doesn’t matter if your poem is on relationships, mental health, or any other topic. All we ask is that your poem is written from the heart. Before you submit your piece, please read the submission guidelines below:

How To Submit Your Work.

If you’ve already been added as a writer, the submission process is extremely simple. Just click the three dots at the top of the page, and select “Written From The Heart.”

If you’re a new writer, send a link to your draft, your Medium username, and any links to previously published poetry on Medium. All communication must be sent to Mattlillywhitemedium@gmail.com. We will aim to review your submission within 7 days. If you do not receive a response, please consider your poem rejected at this time.

Once accepted as a writer, we aim to review every submission within 48 hours. However, if you do not adhere to the submission guidelines, please note that you will not receive a response. Do not feel discouraged if your piece was rejected. You are more than welcome to submit again in the future.

Please note: if you publish a story with us, and then remove it from the publication, we reserve the right to remove you as a writer.

What We’re Looking For.

  • High-quality poetry that is written from the heart. For quality guidelines, please take a look at the poetry topic on Medium.
  • Pieces that are thoughtful, inspirational, and well-developed. Ideally, all submissions should have a clear message/theme/purpose.
  • Drafts that are already edited. For example, title, subtitle, relevant tags, and a landscape image (with author attribution).

What We’re Not Looking For.

  • Pieces that are specifically written to spread hate, misinformation, or outrage.
  • Poems in which a third-party product is being sold, promoted, or advertised. This also applies to the call-to-action.
  • Anything which violates the Medium terms of service or curation guidelines.
