10 Literary Magazines Accepting Poetry NOW - Paying markets

Here are ten literary magazines accepting poetry right now, from traditional verse to experimental forms. Most of these journals also accept fiction. All are paying markets, and none charge submission fees. 

For a list of hundreds of paying markets calling for all genres and forms see Paying Markets.


The Lit Quarterly

“We prefer to publish verse poetry of 12–40 lines, albeit we remain open-minded to submissions of fewer and greater verses. Without demanding observance to any particular brand of formalism, we solicit poems that elicit emotional response and critical reflection.” Genres: Poetry, fiction, nonfiction. Payment: $100 CAD.

"Octavos is a venue for speculative poetry 8 lines or under. We define a line as containing at least one character. White space doesn’t add to the line count." Genres: Poetry and microfiction. Payment: $1 USD/line. 

"Scarlet is a bimonthly blog dedicated to publishing the work of artists whose pieces give voice to the complexities of our multiple identities. In keeping with JIP’s mission to uplift marginalized voices, Scarlet aims to showcase bold and unique framings of the view from the margins, giving strong preference to writing that questions norms and provokes discourse. We are looking for work that redraws lines and reclaims spaces, as well as writing that is pithy, deliberate, and/or experimental." Genres. Poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction. You may submit up to three poems at a time. Payment: $80.

"Send us your strange, misshapen stories with enough emotional heft to break a heart, with prose that’s as clear and delicious as broth. We love proactive characters and settings that feel lived in and real enough to touch. Stories with style, stories with emotion, stories with character. We want it all." Genre: Speculative poetry and fiction on theme of Justice. Payment: $30. Deadline: November 30, 2020.

"We’re a literary journal that’s totally bonkers-in-love with voice-driven writing, pop culture, and the kind of honesty that gets you right in the kidneys. We love stories and poetry and art because they’re our insides turned out for everyone to see: the darkness and the confetti in equal measure." Genres: Poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art. Payment: $50 per author for web issues, and $5/page for print. Deadline: November 30, 2020. Black writers may submit with no fee until December 31, 2020.

This anthology seeks personal non-fiction essays and poems from migrants, asylum seekers, refugees and displaced people with experience in the United States. "We are especially interested in essays and poems from those in the midwest and Border towns. We are centering and giving priority to essays and poems from Indigenous migrants, Black migrants, Asian Pacific Islanders, and Arab communities.”  Payment: The anthology will be published by HarperCollins in English and Spanish. Contributors will be compensated a minimum of $800. Deadline: December 5,  2020.

"I particularly enjoy genre-bending and pushing of form/function. That being said, non-traditional and hybrid forms are very welcome! or audio—.mp3 is best. Would love image or image/word hybrid—.jpg please! Video possible, not highly preferred, but will consider; conceptual here over literal, though open to literal with poetic intent. Column/table-format poems great. Would really love to see more math/science-based works." Genre: Speculative poetry on theme of Travel. Payment: US 3¢/word rounded up to nearest dollar; minimum US $3, maximum $25. Payment is on publication.  Deadline: December 15, 2020.

"At Arc, we find the brave new voices. We feature poetry that is woozy, cunning, shearing and wildlike, and prose that offers new perspectives on the verse you thought you knew." Genre: Poetry. Payment: $50 (CAD) per page. Deadline: December 31, 2020. 

"We only publish translations of poetry (and not original English-language poetry) and the translations must be previously unpublished. We welcome work from any age, but we have a preference for contemporary work. You are welcome to send submissions of up to six poems. You must be able to obtain rights for the reproduction of these translations both in MPT and online on our site." Payment: Not specified. Deadline: December 31, 2020. 

“We specialise in prose and poetry that can be defined roughly by the genre of magic realism. Whilst the official definition for magic realism states it is a form of literature that deals, in an accepting fashion, aspects of life usually represented as outside reality, we prefer to cast our nets a little bit wider.
We love the fantastical, the horrific, the experimental, the incantatory. We don’t like morality plays, overt spiritualism, the banal, the painfully self-aware.” Send up to three poems. Payment: $25 (Australian) per poem and $50-125 for prose. Deadline: December 31, 2020.
