More Approachable Poetry Magazines

See the whole index here.

Seeing that most mainstream publications have a (much) lower acceptance rate than Ivy League colleges, I’ve been compiling an index of approachable poetry magazines to give emerging poets a chance at getting their work out in the world.

Every week, Vita Brevis adds more entries to the ever-growing index of approachable poetry magazines. You should check it out — It’s well worth a bookmark! If you enjoy these posts, you might enjoy some articles I’ve written, too.

*UPDATE: I’ve added some helpful notes on almost every publication on the index such as “WordPress Powerhouse”, “Post-Modern”, “Traditional”, “Pays Poets”, “Niche” etc. This should help you navigate the growing list!

Here’s what I found this week:
