Curated submissions lists, databases of magazines and journals, and more.
The Bookfox list of best places to submit Poetry.
Excellent; updated every month.
Listings are the only all-inclusive literary magazine database and the largest, free and fully searchable listings on the web. Includes multiple ways to search.
List also includes BOLD type where literary magazines take online submissions.
Large database; the magazine editor's description for each sponsored literary magazine gives you an overview of editorial styles—what writers they have published and what they are looking for (with contact information, subscription rates, submission guidelines, and more).
The definitve list. Over 800 literary magazines; easy to scan through and filter for submission info, too.
Long, well-organized list of places to submit poetry, for every kind of poetry and poet.
Check out this list, but don't forget to visit coffeehouses and cafes to see if they do poetry readings and if they’d consider your work. Check and see if your town publishes newspapers with kids’ sections. Be creative and imagine all the other places your words could go.
Important note: most places below specify that they will not accept writing that has been published elsewhere (even a school paper or school publication) and they will not accept submissions that are being sent to other magazines, too. Send ‘em off one at a time, friends!
