University of Alberta Press is accepting poetry manuscripts between September 1 and 30 this year. At the end of the submission period, the Press will select up to three manuscripts for publication in 2022 in the Robert Kroetsch Series of Canadian creative writing. Note: the submission period is only one month long this year and all submissions must be from poets who are Canadians or landed immigrants.
We welcome submissions by poets from diverse and marginalized backgrounds, and are interested in seeing work from a broad range of experiences and aesthetics.

If you have any specific questions, please contact Michelle Lobkowicz, our Acquisitions Editor, Humanities and Literature.
