Welcome to Ephemeral Elegies – the home for poems about emotional experiences. Inspired by confessional poets such as Anne Sexton and Sylvia Plath, we invite submissions about personal experiences and reflections. Confessional poetry can be a great catharsis for a poet, and we want to support you on your journey of self-discovery, growth, and healing.
We are currently open to submissions from new and emerging poets. Visit our Submissions page to learn more about how you can join this community of poets.
Ephemeral Elegies is managed by Editor-in-Chief Tiffany Renee Harmon.
“I know the bottom, she says. I know it with my great tap root:
It is what you fear.
I do not fear it: I have been there.”– Sylvia Plath, The Collected Poems
