Submission Guidelines 


  • For Warm Milk Vol. 2 our direction and mission is to support and highlight the diverse work of writers that push the formal, linguistic, and traditional boundaries of poetry. At Warm Milk our goal is to publish poetry that not only challenges and dares our notions of the written word, but is also unapologetic in its attempt to do so. 
  • Response Time:  All writers will be notified of their status one week after December 1st deadline
  • We do not accept previously published work (simultaneous submissions are accepted and encouraged) 
  • Although we prefer poems of a one-page length, under special circumstances we will allow two-page/ full spread poems 
  • Due to the possibilities of your poetry we allow files such as: .jpeg, .png, .pdf, etc. 
  • All Writers accepted will receive a free copy once completed 
We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
