*Submissions for Cordite Scholarly are always accepted
The following conditions apply to all poetry submissions:
1. We will only read submissions sent during our official submission periods.
2. Cordite maintains a hybrid submissions policy. This means that the guest editor may invite five (5) Australian and five (5) overseas authors directly to submit to the issue. In addition, the guest-editor will anonymously select an additional 30-35 works from Australian authors and use their discretion to select further overseas works. For each issue, the guest editor does not know the identities of the online contributors (via Submittable) until after the final selections have been made.
3. Simultaneous submissions or previously published material will not be considered. This includes works published in print and web journals but does not apply to material first published on personal blogs.
4. Please place up to three (3) poems in one (1) Word or RTF document (unless specifically noted otherwise for special issues), with no identifying details in the document itself.
5. We are not able to offer feedback on individual poems.
6. Submissions will only be accepted via Submittable …
Thanks to the generous support of the Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Victoria and the City of Melbourne, we are able to offer payment for Australian citizen and permanent resident contributors only.
*PLEASE NOTE: Cordite will solicit an invoice from you once your piece is published (please allow up to a fortnight post-publication for payment to be made). It is then up to you to get your invoice to us within 90 days to receive payment. After that, we will consider the publication of your work as a donation. All payments are transacted via direct deposit to Australian bank accounts only. Unfortunately, Cordite does not have the resources for international wires or chasing up why you may or may not have not paid for a publication years ago.

Essays published in Cordite Scholarly will be available in both HTML and PDF versions. The author retains copyright of their material.
