Poetry Society of Vermont
founded in 1947
The Mountain Troubadour

The Poetry Society of Vermont annually publishes a literary journal of members' poems in The Mountain Troubadour. Society members receive one complimentary copy with their membership dues, and may submit poems annually to be considered for publication. Deadline for submission is February 1.


Submission requires membership. The deadline for receiving poems is February 1. Send a maximum of three poems or five haiku for consideration. If sending a combination of longer poems and haiku, submit up to three works in total. Self-published works may be submitted for review.

Members may also submit one previously published poem, labeled as such. A published work will have already gone through a juried process — that is, it will have been selected by an editor of a journal or anthology. Please include the place and date of first publication. 

All poems must be submitted electronically. No simultaneous submissions. Send up to three poems, or five if only haiku, in a single attachment or in the body of an email to PSOV  or to the Troubadour editor. 


Members receive a copy of The Mountain Troubadour as part of their membership. For an additional copy, send $15 to Subscription Manager Carol Milkuhn at 35 Sydney Way, Middlebury, VT 05753.
