Thank you for your interest in Foxglove!

We are open for submissions during the month of June 2022. We advise submitting earlier in the month, rather than leaving it until the end.

Please follow the guidelines below. Submissions that do not respect the guidelines (including work submitted without a cover letter) will not be read.


We accept previously unpublished poetry and short/flash fiction.

Please include a cover letter addressed to me (Elizabeth Gibson, the Editor), introducing your work and outlining why you would like to be featured in Foxglove Journal.

Poetry: between three and six poems of no more than 42 lines each.

Please be aware that this site cannot always accommodate unusual formatting or concrete poetry. If your poem includes these elements, it may not ultimately appear exactly how it did in your submission. We will work together to achieve the closest possible presentation.

Fiction: 200 – 800 words per submission (for example, you could send one 800-word story or 4x 200-word flash fiction pieces).

Please only send one submission at a time (i.e. either a poetry submission or a fiction submission). We will get back to you as soon as possible, hopefully within six weeks.

Simultaneous submissions are permitted, but please let us know at once if you need to withdraw any part of your submission.

Once we have accepted your work, and you have confirmed its availability, we will consider the work as confirmed to appear in Foxglove. Please do not ask to withdraw it after this point, unless in extraordinary circumstances.


Please accompany your work with your biography, written in third-person and in no more than 150 words.

We usually publish an author portrait photograph beside your biography, so please have that prepared for if you are accepted.

To submit work you can either use the form below or email

We look forward to reading your work!
