lean and loafe is a poetry journal that prioritises humanist writing and ecopoetics. Inspired by modernist and mid-century poetry, we seek work synthesising consciousness with spatial poetics.

We pay £20 for every published piece.

Please read our guidelines before submitting. We are currently an online journal.

Our reading periods are:

1st July - 1st September 2022

1st March - 1st May 2023

Each submission costs £3.

You may submit 1-3 poems per fee. Prose and poetry feedback are also available. We will offer a free submission period during each reading window. It will be announced on Twitter. For all other submissions, please pay here.

Our journal relies on your fees and donations. Thank you for your support.

For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass.

Walt Whitman
