A “Safe Space” for Submissions

Poets are invited to send submissions for This Safe Space, an up-and-coming online publication featuring poetry written by survivors of sexual assault. This Safe Space is for survivors to share their stories, struggles, successes, and setbacks through poetry.

Please send your work as a Word document, single-spaced, using 12-point font. Your name, email, and a title for each poem must be included on the document. If you would like to be published anonymously, please state “publish anonymously” below your contact information. No more than three poems can be submitted per author. Simultaneous submissions are allowed.

If your submission is accepted elsewhere, please notify This Safe Space immediately at thissafespace@gmail.com and they will remove your work from consideration. Submissions will close on November 19. Editorial decisions will be made in December.

Submissions can be sent via email to thissafespace@gmail.com. In the subject line, please write “TSS: (your last name)” and note that any submissions not including this subject line may not be reviewed.

A small team of empathetic survivors will review all submissions and inform poets of submission status via email. For questions regarding submissions, feel free to contact us via email at thissafespace@gmail.com.
