Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How to submit poems to the UTSPS Critique Bureau?
A: UTSPS members may submit 12 poems a year for FREE critiques from seasoned Utah poets ($5 for nonmembers, checks to UTSPS). Guidelines:
* Send 1 to 4 poems per batch, maximum 5 pages, one poem per page, typed on standard 8.5x11 white paper. Send only one copy of each. Place name and address on upper right corner of each poem. Staple poems together only when a poem is two pages.
* A book manuscript may be submitted with a $15 reader's fee (checks to UTSPS) and two manila envelopes large enough to forward and return the manuscript. Put adequate postage on both envelopes. One envelope should contain your name and address as receiver; leave the other blank for forwarding to a critic. Allow a month for return.
* Remember, each critic has a different approach to a poem. If you would like another viewpoint, you may return the poem or poems for another review.
* Address submission to:
