I’ve made a list of high-acceptance poetry magazines to give new and emerging poets a clear path forward. I’m happy to say that Vita Brevis has since springboarded hundreds of new poets into magazines around the world.
And though I mostly provide resources for poets who are still finding their footing, I figure I should add another index. So, here is a collection of respected poetry magazines. They have much lower acceptance rates, but they still aren’t top-of-the-line publications like Harper or the New Yorker. Regardless, they’re very impressive and, if you’ve been able to get published in magazines on the other list, then you should really give these a shot!

Vita Brevis Press’ first poetry anthology was a #1 bestselling new poetry release on Amazon.
This list was written and is maintained by Brian Geiger, writer, founder, and editor for Vita Brevis Press. Vita Brevis Press is a bestselling small publisher dedicated to emerging and established poets, circulating their work in an online magazine and in physical anthologies. Vita Brevis Poetry Magazine publishes some of the best emerging poets out there, pairing their work with tonally relevant artwork.
