We are looking for work that emphasises the connections between “human activity and the environment that produces it”, work that displays an “awareness of ecology and concerns over environmental disaster” (“Ecopoetics”, Poetry Foundation). We also want work that is hopeful, in spite of the ecological horrors that exist today.

Send us work that is eco-conscious and critical, work that celebrates the beauty/ bounty of nature, work that is cognisant, curious and contemplative of the relationships between humanity, modernity, cultures and the environments in which we live in or imagine ourselves to inhabit.

Submission Guidelines

  • Depending on your genre, please limit each submission to:

    • 3-5 unpublished poems (a non-English work & its English translation count as one poem submission)

    • 1 unpublished short fiction piece (up to 5,000 words) or

  • All work submitted should be accompanied by a short author bio between 50 and 100 words, and a recent author photo in jpg.

  • Do not re-submit until you hear from us. We aim to respond within 8 weeks, usually sooner.

  • Please wait a period of at least six months to submit again if your work is rejected by us. Repeat submissions that do not adhere to this guideline will no longer be read.

  • While we accept simultaneous submissions, do indicate in your email that this is a simultaneous submission, and write in to us immediately to withdraw your work once it has been accepted elsewhere.

  • Works submitted should engage with the themes of nature, culture, the environment and/ or ecology.

  • While the journal was founded to encourage the publication of and provide a platform for eco-conscious work from Singapore and the region, we will respond to the reality of the submissions we receive. We are proud to say that our contributors hail from all over the world, contributing to the diversity of voices about our earth.

  • The Tiger Moth Review is committed to create a space for minority, marginalised, underrepresented voices in society.

This form will store your information as you go along, but won't be sent to The Tiger Moth Review until you submit on the last page.
