Vita Brevis publishes poetry, especially from unpublished or emerging poets. You can submit your poem without worrying about reading fees, agents, or reading periods. To get a feeling for the Vita Brevis style, read some poems here. You can also read my Duotrope editor interview.
I respond to every single submission, whether it’s accepted or not. If I don’t get back to you within 10 weeks, let me know. I may have missed your submission, or the submission pool was especially busy.
Don’t worry. I know you put a lot of thought into your poetry, but all magazines need some level of editorial standards. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of “theme-ing” issues. Read over some past publications and try again.
