Respected Poetry Magazines (With Acceptance Rates)

respected poetry magazines

I’ve made lists of high-acceptance rate and average-acceptance rate poetry magazines to give 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 new poets, I figure I should complete my list “trilogy” with a final 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. Still, they’re very impressive and, if you’ve been able to get published in magazines on the past two lists, you should really give these ones a shot!

Of course, acceptance rates are estimates and are prone to change
