Submission Guidelines

Monthly review and publication

We are accepting entries for monthly review and publication. We are looking for poetry and short stories. You may publish them later in print, but never online.

We are interested in original, unpublished poetry and short stories (we will consider published work if it’s never published online, and upon selection will never be published on any other online portal).

We are looking for original work only and not for translation or any other form of conversion–it should be totally created by you.

Simultaneous submissions are welcome, provided that you notify us promptly if a poem has been accepted by another publication.

The Rules

  • Send the poetry in Word (.Doc) file with clear formatting to The poems should be clearly titled. Complete detail of author’s name, email address, country, and a brief snippet of personal information should be provided.
  • Submit as many poems and short stories as you want.
  • Every month, we will select 3 best poems and 3 short stories to be published online.
  • The chosen and published work will not be published anywhere else online. The other works will retain their online publishing copyrights.
  • We may consider ‘special mention’ in the coming periods of this competition depending upon volume of work that we receive.


Submission is absolutely free.

Thank you for your interest in contributing to 2indya! We look forward to reading your work.
