I recently began writing poetry again. I would like to look into submitting my poems to a magazine.

Where can I find a list of literary magazines through which I could sort to find a possible fit?

Writer's Market publishes a few different books, including one for poets, which include listings of publishers, agents, magazines, contests, anthologies, etc.

You can find them in most major bookstores. They come out once a year, but there are also listings available on their paid-subscription website: http://www.writersmarket.com/ . It's worthwhile noting that when you buy the book, you get a paid subscription for a year.

Generally speaking it focuses on the American/Canadian markets, and I'm not sure if there's something similar for the UK/Australia/New Zealand/Other English Markets.


You might want to check out Poets & Writers. It is a bi-monthly magazine.

And as it says on their home page:

"If you’re looking for writing competitions, or literary magazines and small presses that welcome both new and established writers, begin here."


If your work falls into the "genre" category, then the following sites might be useful:

  • Duotrope: has lots of genre entries, but also general/literary markets
  • Ralan's: predominantly SF/F/H markets, but is a great site (not the greatest looking site, but good content)
  • +1 for Duotrope. It's such a useful site, and amazingly still free to use.
