Submissions are CLOSED. We are currently reviewing the incredible amount we received. Thank you to everyone who submitted! Our first issue will be released in October.


Please submit your poetry and art via email to

Send 3-5 poems as a single attachment. Unless crucial to the poem, all work should be in Times New Roman, point 12 font. Send art as a .tiff, .jpeg, or .pdf attachment. Do not include your name or contact information on the submission.

Instead, please send a brief bio in the body of your email. Include your name, your email, and links to your website and/or social media. For the subject line of your email, write: “Poetry Submission” or “Art Submission.”

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, though please send us a message if your work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work here, though we love reading your Instagram poems on @lastleavesmag.

Please only send one submission at a time and wait six months to submit again. We hope to respond to each submission within two months. As with most literary magazines, we’re volunteers and doing our best. Please be patient.
