Poets! Take the hard work out of submitting to poetry magazines
What poetry magazines are there? What are their web addresses? How many poems can I send? Are they open for submissions now?
You’ll find all this information and more in my UK & Irish Poetry Magazines spreadsheet, updated quarterly, with interim reminders of windows that are closing. There are currently over 140 magazines listed.
I’m doing the work so you don’t have to. And it’s free. Sign up here and you can unsubscribe at any time.
