The Altar Collective

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Altar Collective is a small press and arts collective based in Los Angeles, CA and Boston, MA. We publish poetry anthologies featuring work from 10-20 international writers. Every donation and book purchase helps make future publications and events possible.

All work must be in Times New Roman, size 12. How you space your work is up to you. 

Your work must have a title and, if you are submitting multiple pieces, PLEASE submit them separately.

Submissions are read blindly, so please DO NOT include your name in your submission.

If the work you are submitting has been accepted by another publication, then we will not be able to accept it. If you are doing simultaneous submissions, it is your responsibility to inform us of any acceptances before our submission process is over. By submitting your work, you understand and allow The Altar Collective to read and potentially publish your piece (author retains all rights to their work).

You should hear back from us three - five weeks after the deadline. Feel free to email us at if you have any questions!
