Under the Radar magazine Submission Guidelines:


  • All submissions must be made through our Submittable portal. Please contact us if you are not able to access this online to arrange alternative method of submission.


  • Please submit no more than six poems, or a maximum 2,500-3000 words of fiction. For reviews, articles and artwork, please contact us first for further details.


  • Please only submit previously unpublished work.


  • We are sorry, but we are not able to offer payment for poems or short stories selected for publication in the magazine.

  • To ensure plenty of variety, we do not feature the same poets in consecutive issues. Whilst we're always delighted to feature poets again in the future, please allow at least six months before submitting to the magazine again if we have already published some of your poems in the most recent issue.
