Submission Guidelines

Please read the following information carefully.

We regret that we can't review any submissions that fail to follow these guidelines.


SurVision Magazine seeks Surrealist poems of any school written in English. You may submit no more that 5 poems per submission. We will occasionally consider prose poems and essays on Surrealism and Neo-Surrealist poetry, as well as Surrealism-related visual poetry.

On rare occasions, translations of Surrealist poems from other languages will be considered. If you are submitting these, please make sure you include the originals with your translations and secure permissions from the copyright holders, where applicable, prior to submitting.


SurVision does not consider for publication: poems exceeding 40 lines, video poetry, haiku and other Japanese short-form poetry, flash fiction, microfiction, short stories and unrelated essays.

We do not consider, or review, unsolicited poetry collections or chapbook manuscripts, however the latter can be submitted to the James Tate contest.


Please create an account on Green Submissions and use Submission Manager to send us your poems. If you experience any difficulties with Submission Manager, please let us know. We do not accept postal submissions.

Please type your poems ONE UNDER ANOTHER, with a noticeable interval between them, in the body of your cover letter.

Please DO NOT submit each poem separately; if we receive five submissions each containing one poem we'll only read the first. If you feel you must send your submission as a file, please make sure it is a .doc, .docx or .rtf file. We will not open .pdf or .xml files.

On all submissions, please include a short biographical note and indicate your geographic location.

All the poems must be unpublished original work of the author. We do accept work that is under consideration elsewhere, but let us know immediately if your poem(s) have been accepted for publication.

Please DO NOT submit your material more than once during a year.
Please DO NOT submit more than once for the same issue.
We do not publish the same writer more than once a year, and never in consecutive issues.

We normally publish between one and three poems per poet per issue.

SurVision is a web journal that comes out biannually, in early January and July. The deadlines for these issues are 20th December and 25th June. Submissions are accepted at any time. We are unable to enter into any kind of correspondence regarding any of our editorial decisions.

If your work is included in SurVision, please credit the journal as SurVision or SurVision Magazine. Thank you in advance.
