The Fall 2022 Crone Power Issue of Gyroscope Review is a special issue, dedicated to women identifying poets over the age of 50. We feel this demographic is often overlooked as a source of power and inspiration in poetry, and we love to give voice to these unique poets. Their words come from the heart. Read the work of this incredible group of poets and come away moved by their energy and strength.

The Winter 2023 Issue is an open issue with no theme, just fine, contemporary poetry. We welcome all poets, whether emerging or established, we also welcome all types of poems. Rhyming poetry is a hard sell, as are forms unless done well, but we’re willing to look at almost everything. No racist, sexist, anti-LGBTQA+ or any other –ist poems. We’re not the magazine for that. Check our FAQ page and guidelines for more details.
Mark the dates!
Winter Submissions open Oct 1, 2022 and run through December 1, 2022. We will close early if we get all the poems we need, so submit early. We also close to submissions early for the month if we reach our submissions cap. Put 4 poems in one .doc(x) or .rtf document, page breaks in between poems, please, and an up-to-date bio for the magazine in the Submittable bio section. No weird formatting. It makes the editors twitch. Do not submit poems individually. Only submit once. If you submit more than 4 poems in a doc., we will read the first 4 and ignore the rest, breaking their poemy little hearts. Please use the name in your bio you’d like to be published under.
We welcome poems that are seasonal. Send us your topical takes on the world. We have eclectic tastes, so give us a shot. We’d love to see what you’ve been working on.
