“The poet should be as sensitive as an aching tooth.” — Anna Swir

At Psaltery & Lyre, we want essays, stories, poetry, and hybrid works that push the borders of sacred and secular. We are particularly interested in works that speak from a place of embodiment — the lived experiences that touch belief and doubt. We use these terms broadly and are interested in any work that may brush up against them. 

If you are interested in submitting to Psaltery & Lyre, please see our Submission Guidelines.

Founded by Dayna Patterson in 2016, Psaltery & Lyre was gifted over to a new body of editors in 2022.
