Submit | Poetry Anthology in Partnership with The Village Institute

South Broadway Press is now accepting submissions for our new Anthology, DWELL


We are partnering with the local non-profit The Village Institute to raise funds for their operations.

What The Village Institute does:

The Village Institute is a holistic live/learn/work center, bringing housing, language learning, job readiness workshops, and mental health services all under one roof. We also operate The Little Village School for Young Children right here onsite, ensuring that families have high-quality care and education for their children.

Our mission is to cultivate a multigenerational ecosystem which uplifts the power of refugee and immigrant families and brings them closer with their neighbors.

About Dwell

What comes to mind when you think of the word “dwell”? When you hear it? When you say it out loud?  Do you think of the comfort of your home or do you visualize the tent towns and unhoused citizens around your city? Perhaps that has been your experience. Perhaps you are one of the thousands of refugees and immigrants seeking asylum, many of whom face harrowing journeys only to be turned away? Perhaps you ruminate on all the time you have spent inside in the last year or ponder how wonderful it is to be able to dwell with others in public again… or perhaps you simply ponder…

For our 2021 Anthology, South Broadway Press wants your poetry and short hybrid form pieces reflecting what “dwell” means to you. 

BIPOC and queer poets are highly encouraged to submit.

Thank you for considering submitting us. We are honored to read and publish writing that matters and to give the proceeds to such a worthy cause. 


  • Please include “Dwell” in the subject of your submissions.
  • Please submit no more than three pieces of poetry. If poetry to you comes out as a story, flash fiction, prose, we will honor that and consider it.
  • While generally we are looking for pieces on the theme of home, we will consider all pieces.
  • Please attach writing separately as a .doc or as a Google doc.
  • BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ folks are highly encouraged to submit.
  • Please include a headshot and a 100-word-or-less bio. Please include any social media links.
  • Submissions can be sent to
  • Please no previously published pieces or pieces featured on personal sites and blogs.
  • Deadline: EXTENDED until 12/15/2021

Accepted submissions will be awarded $25 and one free copy of the anthology. Additional copies will be available to published authors at cost (roughly $7-10)
