We ask for first serial rights and anthology rights (for any future anthology of poems from a series of publication years of the journal). We may request, at the author’s discretion, the right to publish accepted poems electronically on our Web site. All other rights revert to the author upon publication, with the expectation that Presence will be credited when poems are republished.
Acknowledgments should cite in the following manner: "Poem or prose title" was originally published in Presence: A Journal of Catholic Poetry 2017 [i.e. the appropriate year].
