Submit a Poem!
Looking for a place to share your poems? Family Friend Poems is a showcase for popular contemporary poetry. We publish only poems our visitors will love. Less than 5% of poems submitted to us are published. If you're not sure your poem is good enough, head on over to our forums and post there first.
Why should you publish your poem with us? If your poem is good enough and we do publish it. It is likely that there are few other places on the web or in print where your poem will be read more over time.
Here's how it works:
- There is a long waiting period for new poetry to be reviewed, with a wait time of up to 6 months.
- Poems are first scanned by our Editors, rated on our review new poems page by up to 10 visitors, then passed to our Editors for a final decision.
- Waiting 6 months is a long time, you can speed up the process by taking time to rate 10-20 (or more) newly submitted poems on our Review Page.
- You will ONLY be notified by email if your poem is published on our website.
- We do not publish poems which are already posted on the Internet, including poems posted on our Forums
- You may submit only 1 poem every 30 days.
- Submit your 1 most popular poem, not necessarily your best poem. Choose a poem that people from all over the world can relate to. Put personal details in the introduction not the poem.
- Only submit poems written in English
