PLEASE NOTE: Under the Radar will be taking a short winter break, and will be closed to submissions from 1st December 2015 until 14th January 2015.


A new submissions process will be in place in January - please watch this space for details on how to submit work in future.


  • Please send us 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.


  • If sending electronically, please send your poems in one Word Document file or PDF, not as individual files for each poem.


  • All submissions must be previously unpublished.


  • You must include a stamped addressed envelope (with the correct postage on) for our reply if submitting by post (or advise of an email address if you do not wish to have your work returned). Without return postage, we will not be able to reply to you or return your work or resond to your submission.

  • We do receive a high volume of submissions, so please allow at least 10 weeks for our reply.


  • Please do not make multiple submissions, either by sending us work you have also simultaneously submitted to other magazines or publications, or by sending us further work to consider before we have responded to your first submission. We cannot consider submissions that ignore this request.


  • 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.
