"Words that turn the page to flames"
The Smoking Poet is a literary magazine, online since 2006. We have an international audience, but also a strong focus on Michigan writers, where we are headquartered. The Smoking Poet publishes fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and social commentary. In each issue, we also feature the artwork of an invited artist in a variety of mediums.
Authors and artists published in The Smoking Poet are established, but also the new and yet unpublished. Our only criterion is excellence. We are as likely to publish a bestselling author as a novice writer just finding his or her voice. To submit, please visit our website to read our submission guidelines and contact information. Our editors are eager to read your very best work.
