A COMPLETE LITTLE UNIVERSE. That was William Carlos Williams’s definition of a poem. And it’s ours too. We’re looking for poems that, in a brief space, capture a complete universe.

Emerging poets account for a third of the scores of poets whom Narrative publishes each year.
Many of our contest winners go on to find agents, win other awards, and publish books.
We are committed to paying our authors, to providing excellent editorial support, and to encouraging a wide audience for poetry.
