The Children's Corner

The Louisville Review accepts submissions of previously unpublished poetry from students in grades K-12. We seek writing that looks for fresh ways to recreate scenes and feelings. Honest emotion and original imagery are more important to a poem than rhyming and big topics—such as life, moralizing, and other abstractions.

Include name on every page and include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for reply only. Submissions are recycled. Do not send the only copy of your work. Please note that we cannot review electronic submissions at this time.

Children/teen (K-12) poetry and fiction must be accompanied by parental permission to publish if accepted. Submissions are accepted throughout the year. Payment is in copies.

All correspondence should be addressed to:
