A web magazine that publishes biannually, Shenandoah‘s editor is supported by students at Washington and Lee University’s English Department. From the website: “We will accept POETRY submissions from November 15 to December 15. We will also accept submissions in the same window for the GRAYBEAL-GOWEN PRIZE FOR VIRGINIA POETS, which was established to honor the memory of Washington and Lee graduate and lover of poetry, Howerton Gowen. Poets living in or born in Virginia, as well as those with long-term residency in the past, are eligible.” The editors stop accepting submissions once they receive 800, so submit sooner, rather than later. Full info here.
From the University of Louisville, Miracle Monocle is an online journal founded in 2009. For the next issue, submit up to 3 poems. The deadline is 1 August 2019, “and/or until we received 500 total…submissions”. Check out the full submission guidelines for information on how to submit to not just the journal but also an anthology for work by “contributors who identify as rural and queer”. There are also two awards which each have a fee to enter.

The Manchester Review is published out of the University of Manchester’s Centre for New Writing. It is an online publication, which was launched in 2008. It is open to international submissions.
Copied from website: ‘Submissions are now open for Issue 14 until midnight, 31st March 2015. See below for guidelines. The Manchester Review publishes two issues per year in Spring and Autumn. During our submission period we welcome unpublished fiction, poetry and essays from both established and new writers. Please make no more than one submission per issue. If you do not hear back from us in time for the upcoming issue, your work will be considered for the next one. Simultaneous submissions are permitted.’ [Ed’s note: this means you can send the same work to another publication simultaneously – but do let either know, if your work is accepted by the other.]
‘Poetry: Please send no more than 3 poems.
We only accept Word documents or PDF files. In the subject line, please include your name and the category (Fiction/Non-Fiction/Poetry/Art) and make sure that identifying details are also on your submission.
