I just composed a new poem on that particular movement. Anyhow, i think poetry is an oft-neglected medium of expression. It is our responsibility for us to be the caretakers and storytellers. John, Thank you for creating this site for those of us passionate about writing poetry but thwarted by accomplishing how to get our work published. McSweeney’s publish fiction and nonfiction not poetry.
We do not accept multiple submissions, but we do consider simultaneous submissions. Please let us know when your work has been accepted for publication elsewhere. Writers should, of course, know the magazine or publication they submit work to since not knowing can be a waste of everyone’s time.
Queer people of color are especially encouraged to submit. Isele Magazine isseeking submissions of essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, and book reviews. As you mentioned earlier, many magazines now charge a small reading fee.
Sci-fi and fantasy writers, this one’s for you. Daily Science Fiction is looking for character-driven fiction, and the shorter, the better. While their word count range is 100 to 1,500 words, they might consider flash series — AKA three or more flash tales built around a common theme.
For this quarterly issue of Isele Magazine, we are seeking submissions that revolve around food. We want fiction, nonfiction, poetry, photography, visual art, and hybrid works that explore sociological themes around food. Send us yoursolarpunk fantasies,biopunk horrors,cli-fi dystopias, and everything in-between.
Kenya, for example, prohibits material that portrays LGBTQ+ stories in a positive light—the country infamously banned the 2018 Kenyan film, Rafiki, for being a lesbian love story. The legacy of such regulations lives on up to today, where queercoding and queerbaiting are both present extensively in media, and where queer joy is often not portrayed explicitly, if at all. If you have not heard from us within two months, please feel free to send a query We will respond to every submission no later than 6 months from the date of submission.
We read each email and regularly answer inside one business day.

The partners borrowed $50 and solicited writing by friends and family for the first issue. Safransky typed up the material, Mathers drew illustrations, and it was printed on a copy machine. The first issue was titled the Chapel Hill Sun and was sold for $0.25 each. Readership was about 1000 for roughly the first decade and has now increased to more than 70,000. That’s tough to answer, as this issue is filled with extraordinary essays, and might just be our strongest issue yet. That said, in addition to yours, there are a few essays that immediately come to mind.
Hi, my father was an internationally recognized scientist, who wrote poetry on the side. He typed out 40 poems, but had over 80 additional handwritten poems, some with multiple versions. For NEW and emerging poets, I recommend my publication, Vita Brevis. I hope this adds some useful information to the debate. I can’t vouch that is 100% accurate but the information is based on my notes made while submitting work to various publications. Ecotone – accept work with a strong sense of place or pieces that re-imagine place.
Many do not accept British writers as it costs them too much money. The problem with this is people may not always get a response. I have had to ask directly if they accept submissions from Britain.
