Editorial Guidelines


Wax Poetics welcomes unsolicited submissions. Feel free to pitch us story ideas or offer us completed articles and interviews, though please note that we rarely accept already published material, including articles already available on the Internet. We are also always looking for articles for our website.

When submitting your pitch to us, please write a well-thought-out summary of your idea, provide a relevant résumé, and include two published clips for our review. If you are an unpublished writer, please include two examples of your writing and/or an explanation of your writing experience.

Send to editorial[at]waxpoetics{dot}com. (No phone calls please. Phone calls will not be returned.)

Due to the volume of submissions, we regretfully cannot guarantee a response to pitches that do not fit our criteria.
