Radar Poetry is an electronic journal published quarterly in January, April, July, and October. We publish poems from established and emerging writers and welcome international submissions. Our taste is eclectic; we encourage submitters to read our past issues before sending work.
We are interested in the interplay between poetry and visual media. Each issue features pairings of poetry and artwork, selected by the editors and contributors.
Radar Poetry offers an annual award, the Coniston Prize, for the best group of poems submitted by a female poet writing in English. The award is $1,000. The winner and all finalists are published each year in the October issue of Radar.
