2013 Poet’s Market

Believe it or not, there are still other places one can have poetry published than your lonesome blog. In fact,there are a lot of them. I’ve submitted to and been published in a few. The best tool I’ve found is the good ol’ annual Poet’s Market, which boasts 1200 journals accepting different kinds of poetry. The 2013 edition is the 26th, so they’ve been around quite a while. The Kindle edition is available for $15 from Amazon. I’ve always used the print version. Somehow, it just doesn’t feel right on a Kindle. For you who prefer a print version, Writer’s Digest sells them direct.

The book provides contact and submission info, often including what the journal is looking for. It’s usually a good idea to check out a copy of your submission target in advance, just to see if what they publish feels like it fits your work.

If you think you’re ready, give it a try. If you’re not a poet, there’s also a Writer’s Market, and a Novel and Short Story Writer’s Market, although I’ve not tried either of those in a few years.

Good luck!
