Subject line: Submission, [Your name]. If you don’t do this, we may overlook your submission.
Include up to 4 ghazals in the body of your email.
A brief third-person biography may be included with a submission or sent separately. Please do not include a bio as part of an attachment.
After you submit
To withdraw work, please simply email us with details. Subject line: Withdrawn, [Withdrawn poem/s name/s].
Feel free to query if you’ve not heard back from us in three months.
Rights of unpublished work revert back to the author upon online publication. The Ghazal Page retains the right to archive work online and in future print or online publications (including social media use) and for educational purposes.
If you need to send a correction, please resend the entire poem. That way the correction is far more likely to be made when the ghazal is published.
If you’ve sent a bio before, it is no longer necessary to resend it with each submission. Just email us a new bio, with or without a submission, whenever it needs updated.
REVIEWS AND ESSAYS
We welcome reviews of ghazal publications and may accept essays on the topic of ghazals.

The next theme challenge (#84) will be “Family” – the most basic source of human experience, and sometimes the most troublesome.
Anticipated publication date: December, 2018. Submissions will be accepted until at least the end of November.
How to submit to Challenge issues
Submit 1-4 ghazals inspired by the challenge prompt regardless of whether or not you have outstanding submissions for other issues.
Include the name of the challenge (and the word Submission) in the subject line of your email.
Please follow all other regular submission guidelines.
Feel free to include in your bio how you approached the Challenge prompt and what struck a chord with you (optional).
Ghazals which are not included in a particular challenge issue may still be published in a different issue.
Future Challenge issues will be intermittent, rather than every other issue, due to the backlog of regular submissions.
