If you’re an unpublished poet, submitting your work to poetry magazines with high acceptance rates is a great way to get your name out there.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.
Most of these publications do not ask for reading fees, and all of them are respectable. Though “bloggy” and student-led publications are easy to get accepted in, I urge poets to send their work in to magazines with a wider readership and higher editorial standards.
How do you find those? It’s pretty tough, so here’s a list of great magazines for new and emerging poets. Getting published in any of these is something to be proud of. They’re in no particular order, so have at it!
If your worked gets picked up by a lot of these publications, then you’re ready to move up to the next tier. Here are some respected poetry publications that are much more selective.
