We are six years old! For our sixth issue, Perfume River Poetry Review seeks to celebrate and sing about childhood. We are looking for poems that explore the wonders and joys of childhood. Tell me your childhood stories: What kind of child were you or are you still? How large and wondrously strange did the world seem to you? Tell me about your smallness and your fears and what you lost when you grew up.

For consideration for the sixth issue of Perfume River Poetry Review:
– Send 3-5 poems related to our childhood theme issue. Poems that are not relevant to the theme will not be accepted.
– Mailed submissions only. We are not open to email submissions at this point. (However, poets from outside of the United States are welcome to submit via email to avoid international postage charges.) Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope.
– Reading period open from September 1 to December 31, 2017. Poems submitted after the deadline of December 31 will not be accepted.

Please mail submissions to:
