DMQ Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Thank you for your interest in DMQ Review. We are extremely proud of our 22 YEAR history as one of the longest continuously running online journals in the nation. It has been our privilege to publish the work of both established and emerging poets and to do so without submission or subscription fees, featuring award-winning poetry with art since 1998. We welcome and encourage American and international voices from all cultural identities in the English language.

We are interested in skillfully crafted poems. We seek work that represents and invigorates the diversity of contemporary poetry and demonstrates literary excellence whether it be lyric, free verse, prose, or experimental mode. 

SUBMISSIONS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED. Please Subscribe (no cost) on our About page or follow us on Facebook for submission calls and updates.

The DMQ Virtual Salon launched in July 2020 featuring three poets reading from their new books. Please contact Editors at if you have a 2021 or newer indie press poetry book and would like to participate in this ongoing event. We welcome books published within the previous twelve months of appearance.  

Check out our About page for more detail.
