Anthology Submissions

CultureCult invites poetry submissions for publication in its poetry anthology “Masques“. (Expected release: December 2019). The final date of submission is November 5, 2019

Poems of ALL lengths are invited. Please send no more than FIVE poems in your submission.

Masques is a celebration of identities. The theme for this anthology calls for an introspective spot on what IDENTITY means in a personal capacity that helps us ascertain our true selves.

We also invite verses on the social sense of IDENTITY – that which prompts individuals to count ourselves among groups such as the priveleged or the persecuted, the eccentrics or the introverts, the heteronormative or the queer.


We are accepting TRANSLATED POETRY as well. Submission of translated works must be accompanied by a statement declaring that the translator has obtained the author’s permission and their publisher’s, if required.

Simultaneous Submissions are welcome but the author must inform us by e-mail as soon as the submitted piece is accepted elsewhere. Pieces cannot be withdrawn once CultureCult informs the author of its acceptance for publication.

We consider reprints but generally do not publish them unless they are absolutely exceptional.

At present, we are unable to pay our contributors. However, each contributor shall receive a COMPLIMENTARY DIGITAL COPY of the anthology as soon as it publishes.


Manuscripts should directly be sent to
