The Trouvaille Journal is an online international literary magazine focused mainly on poetry for young people all over the world.

Trouvaille literally means to stumble upon an enchanting thing by happenstance, and we’re more than ecstatic to have you here.

This journal is a petite poetry-house, and we accept poetry of all forms and stages: the wolfbites and the moonscoops, the flower-petals and the stir-crazies. We want the soft and the wild, the dark and the light. We want your work if you truly, wholeheartedly believe in it.

We are dedicated to the representation of minorities, the acceptance of diversity, the idea of feminism in its truest sense. We want ideas that open our eyes and ears. We want work that dances on everything that needs to be heard. We want philosophy. We want literature that helps us grow into better people. We want poetry that explores the most mundane of moments in the most creative of ways.

We look first and foremost for people who have not been published anywhere before. If you have never been accepted by any magazine or journal yet, feel incredibly free to submit to us, because we do not ask for prior experience. However, if your genius (by some crazy chance) does not make it to the journal, you can always try again. We do not limit to how many times you can submit, as long as you send one piece at a time.

That being said, send us your best pieces! We accept the poems that make us feel a soft thud at the bottom of our hearts.

Feel free to submit ➸
