poetry magazines with high acceptance rates

If you’re an unpublished poet, submitting your work to poetry magazines with high acceptance rates is a great way to get your name out there. I’ve created a list of these magazines to encourage emerging poets to enter the world of poetry publication!

Check out magazines that are a bit more competitive on my list of poetry magazines with average acceptance rates.
