Some US Poetry Magazines

Lots of poetry magazines in the US are linked to universities. I wonder does that affect the style of poems they accept? All but a handful accept snailmail only but will response internationally by email. I recommend you read some of the sample poems to get the flavour of what they like. MAny do not read year round so doublecheck before sending.

The best resource for American Fiction and Poetry Magazines is Duotrope. This compiles statistics on everything you can think of, response times, payments, if you're published here, try this one, postal/email, most challenging markets. It's a fantastic site. Would that we had similar for UK/Irish magazines. Some are respresented here.

Southern Review is in Savannah, Georgia.

Comstock Review  reads now only 1st January to 15th March. Syracuse, New York

American Poetry Review is a real heavyweight.

Poet Lore is from the Writers' Centre, Bethesda, Maryland

Indiana Review is a challenging market.

The Louisville Review accepts electronic submissions.

Massacheusetts Review They aspire to have a broad appeal; our commitment, in part regional, is not provincial.

Crazyhorse is another tough market. Prefers electronic submission. Charleston, South Carolina

New York Quarterly gets 50,00 submissions a year.

Ploughshares sets high standards

South West Review accepts online submissions for $2.
