Submission Guidelines for Beggar Poet Series 

Hohm Press is now reading for the inaugural edition of our Beggar Poet Series. As an established publisher of spiritual literature, we are looking for books of poetry that will complement our catalogue. 

Though our market is spiritual books, we are not necessarily looking for “spiritual” poetry. We believe that poetry written from a true place is inherently spiritual, without needing to proclaim itself as such.

We like poetry grounded in life experience, with a visceral edge. Poetry that is well crafted and at the same time accessible to the untrained reader.


  • Submit full-length manuscripts of original poetry (60-120 pages); no email or digital submissions.
  •  Manuscripts should list publication credits for individual poems.
  •  Please enclose a brief cover letter, including author bio, with your submission.
  •  Provide an SASE for response only. Unpublished manuscripts will be recycled.
  •  If your manuscript is chosen, you will be offered an author-friendly royalty contract and ten complimentary copies of your book. Additional copies may be purchased at a discount.
  • We are reading now for publication in Spring 2023.
  • Address submissions to:
