Pudding Magazine is a small press literary publication with an emphasis on poetry, although we do sometimes publish very short fiction, essays, book reviews, art and photography. We encourage new authors to submit, but we also publish many established authors. In rare instances, we publish theme issues and chapbooks by invitation in addition to the semiannual journals.
Magazines range from 60-80 pages. Our mix is eclectic, and we like it that way. Traditional, modern and experimental forms of writing are given equal consideration; we only ask for originality and excellence. Our roots are "applied poetry", so we are open to poems that address the complexities of modern life, including but not limited to political, social, and psychological issues, and how art helps us through the processes of living.
Although PM usually doesn't publish books other than anthologies of poetry and short fiction, we made an exception for Robert Riche's All the Days: A Memoir in Poetry. For one thing, we received a lot of positive mail after we featured Riche in PM #, more than any other featured poet! Then too, Pudding House, PM’s original publisher, published Riche's first chapbook of poetry. And finally, we really loved this manuscript! It's a journey through personal, political and philosophical landscapes of one man's life--and as such, brings us to a greater understanding of our own lives. Available at

Soon to be available on Amazon.
PM 63 is a very special issue. Featuring an essay about PM founder Jennifer Bosveld along with a dozen of her poems. Jennifer was an icon in the world of poetry and small press publishing with her powerful Pudding House Publications empire. This issue is a tribute to her contributions to writers far and wide (editors of PM included!) and the greater world of literature. Lots of great work in this issue we think Jennifer would love to read! Collectors of PM need this issue on their bookshelves. Order your copy at puddingmagazine.com or email email@example.com.
