A List of Approachable Poetry Magazines (Average Acceptance Rate)

poetry magazines with average acceptance rates

So, I’ve compiled a pretty long list of publications with high acceptance rates, but what about more exclusive poetry magazines?

Once you get your work in a few laid-back publications, you should start looking into more competitive ones. The likelihood of rejection increases quite a bit here, but the advantages of publication do as well. So, here’s a list of picky but approachable poetry magazines:

[I’ve made the high-acceptance-rate list between 30-80%, this list between 15-30%, and a respected magazines list between 0.5-15%]

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