Submissions

 

 Submit to Lyricality–Overview

Every week, Lyricality publishes Tuesday conversations with Minnesota poets and lyricists, Thursday news and reviews which will publicize either a Minnesota poetry/music event, or a review of recently released songs or books. On Sunday mornings, we publish a poem or a song we like. Previously published work is welcome, as is new work.

Submissions are open year-round. We do not charge submission fees. 

Tuesday Conversations

If you are an experienced writer, we welcome your thoughtful and thought-provoking reflections on a conversation/interview you’ve had with a Minnesota poet or lyricist. Read our blog to see what we mean by “thoughtful and thought-provoking.” Length 1200 – 3000 words; include relevant photos, videos, and links.

Thursday News and Reviews 

This would be a good place for new writers to break into print–or for established writers to draw attention to an upcoming or ongoing event, or publicize a recent work of music by a Minnesota lyricist, or share a review of a recent book by a Minnesota poet.

Sunday Morning Lyricality

Send us a song or a poem that will move or inspire us. Maybe it arouses compassion or invokes curiosity. Maybe it evokes wonder, gratitude, or delight. Maybe it sheds light or provides a welcome insight, a new way of seeing. Maybe it offers a moment of calm in the storm. Your previously published work is welcome, but include acknowledgement and obtain relevant permission. New work is also welcome.

Lyricality Writers Page

 Our goal is to acknowledge and give space to all of Minnesota’s literary poets, lyricists, spoken word performers, and alt-lit poets–but we don’t have the resources to track you all down. So send us a short, relevant bio and we’ll contact you requesting a high-resolution photograph. Then we’ll add you to our database.
