Submissions are now open for our first ever multi-media zine! 

Berkeley Poetry Review seeks language-based and/or experimental writing, translations, and art. We are particularly interested in work that complicates prevailing conceptions of race, gender, sexuality, and poetic form itself.

For this Fall 2022’s Zine, we are also looking for photography, paintings, prose, and other creative works that speak to notions of the home, the familiar, the intimate, the hand-made, and everything in between.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please withdraw your submission immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. We aim to get back to each submitter regarding the status of their submission within 8 weeks; please feel free to contact us if 8 weeks have passed without contact since the date of submission.

Please do not submit via email as your submission will likely get lost and go unread. Your submission should contain no more than three previously unpublished poems. Please submit your poems in a single document. Do not submit more than once over the course of a single reading period. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us at
