Pittsburgh Poetry Journal (PPJ) seeks work that clangs with grit, passion, and a multitude of voices. We want poems that celebrate or break traditions and strive for progress. We want your work that speaks to the spirit of Pittsburgh from any corner of the world.

We welcome and encourage submissions from underrepresented voices in literary journals—including women and nonbinary writers, people of color, members of immigrant communities, and members of the LGBTQIA community, as well as those living at the intersections of these identities.

Please submit no more than three (3) poems, or seven (7) pages total.
