Not Very Quiet

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Not Very Quiet is a new twice yearly online journal which aims to offer an opportunity for more women poets of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds to publish their work. We believe it’s more important than ever to provide a platform to extend the range and breadth of poetry written by women so as to encourage and strengthen its impact.

Our first issue is now live. Guidelines for Issue 2 will be available soon.

Each issue offers a quote to use as
 prompt, a provocation, a reminder note, a tease, a dissonance, for your writing. Use all of it as a theme, an idea, a concept, a dilemma, a contradiction; or use part of it, or just one word …

We accept a wide range of poetic forms. See our Submission guidelines.
