Twyckenham Notes is an independent online literary magazine based out of South Bend, Indiana. Founded in early 2017, TN publishes unsolicited and solicited poetry and artwork three times a year (March, July, and November). Poetry published in Twyckenham Notes has won the Pushcart Prize and has been named as a finalist for the Best of the Net Anthology. Committed to publishing a variety of voices, from fellow Hoosiers to poets around the world, TN seeks to present an honest and visceral rendering of our collective human experience.

Full submission details can be found below. 

Poetry published in Twyckenham Notes has won a Pushcart, has been named among the finalists for the Best of the Net Anthology, and the magazine was a finalist for a 2019 Firecracker Award for Best Debut Magazine. We are interested in poetry of all styles, but none in which the writer-reader connection is lost entirely. Edgy is good; so is heart. We want kinetic poetry with lifeblood and plenty of momentum. The best way to get a feel of what we like is to visit one of our past issues. We nominate published work for all major literary awards. 

Poets will be awarded $25 per accepted poem.
