Three Highlights from TRP’s Annual Report

1.  “Our two open submission periods during this reporting period were September 2016 and February 2017. During those two months we received 3,835 poems. We accepted 93 and declined 3,742—a 2.4% acceptance rate. In 2009, a submissions-tracking website for writers, ranked Tar River Poetry as one of the Top 25 Most Challenging Poetry Markets in the U.S.”


2. “Journal gender bias has been a recent concern in the literary community. Of the 87 poems we published during 2016, 44 were by men and 43 by women. We also reviewed eight books—two by male poets and six by female poets.”


3. “Our current mailing list includes subscribers from 46 of the 50 United States; the District of Columbia; and the countries of Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Singapore, and South Korea.”
