Project Details

It’s huge, shiny and scary, but also exactly what you need sometimes. Submit your poems that feature or investigate the lyrical potential of the ocean. This might be a physical setting, a memory, or a foreign sea in the next galaxy - an actual place or a metaphor. Just make us feel surprised and a little wet. 


  • Submissions must not exceed three poems or 360 lines.
  • Submissions must be typed and submitted through the editor. 
  • You may use accompanying visuals, but add them in the post as they’re meant to be read.
  • Multiple submissions must be submitted separately.
  • You may submit poems that are being submitted elsewhere. However, if another publication accepts them, you should withdraw the submission from Smple immediately. 

Winners will be published on our next print issue + online magazine, featured across our platform and our social media channels! Good luck creating!
