F&SF seeks original poems that evoke a feeling or present ideas in a unique or insightful way. Poems express a love of language, that subvert the ordinary, have sharp imagery, tell a story, and/or evoke a time, a mood, a place. If you choose to explore genre archetypes, be sure to push your poems to take us beyond the common known tropes. Filter the known and unknown world through the lens of your imagination. We enjoy all genres of poetry--science, science fiction, fantasy, horror, and beyond. Please submit up to 5 poems at a time in a single document. Include the number of lines. Title the submission however best suits you, but we recommend using the title of the first poem in the group like this "First Poem and other poems." In the recent past, we have preferred short and middle-length poems up to about 80 lines. [Your name, titles, true (non-fictitious) epigraphs, spaces, and stanza breaks are not included in the line or word count.] The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction has been publishing poetry since the second issue of the magazine, but we do not publish a lot of poetry so expect us to be highly selective. As with the fiction we publish, the speculative element -- fantasy, science fiction, horror, etc. -- may be slight but it must be present and essential to the poem. For more information about Speculative Poetry (Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, or Science), please visit the SFPA https://www.sfpoetry.com/index.html
