Submissions for the "Culinary Poems" issue will close at midnight, June ​2​1st.

Please send your poems to the PF Editors at with brief bio. This issue will be published in 2019.

We are looking for poems about cuisine/culinary arts, poems that are more than simple descriptions, poems that contain linked ideas, that are layered and contain some element of surprise or epiphany. Language, metaphor, the usual poetry suspects, but with some punch.


Pirene’s Fountain is published as a print journal every November.

Submissions and correspondence should be addressed to the editing team:
