All advertising is accepted subject to the approval of the Poetry Foundation. The Poetry Foundation reserves the right to revise or reject, in whole or in part, any copy submitted for publication. Advertisements are accepted upon the representation that the Advertiser and its agencies are authorized to publish the contents thereof.

Payment Policies

  • Prepayment is required for new accounts. The advertiser and advertising agency are jointly and separately responsible for payment.
  • Payment may be made by Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and check or money order.
  • Advertiser's account must be in good standing before advertisement will be accepted.
  • Cancellations or changes cannot be made after the ad closing date — all cancellations must be submitted in writing. A 25% reservation fee will be charged on all cancellations before ad closing date.

Additional Information

  • If copy is received after deadline, Poetry Foundation will not be held responsible for errors.
  • The positioning of advertisements is at the discretion of the Publisher.
  • Publisher is not liable for the delay in delivery and/or non-delivery in the event of an act of God, action of government, fire, flood, riot, explosion, transportation interruption of any kind or any condition beyond the control of the Publisher affecting production or delivery.
