The wonderfully-titled Door is a Jar magazine welcomes submissions that steer ‘away from academic writing’; it ‘publishes short, conversational works that use familiar language’. In other words, accessibility is key. The editors encourage familiarising oneself with previous issues – which can be done via Kindle – before submitting. Each poem (to a maximum of five) should not exceed one page in length. Only submit previously unpublished work. Full details here.
The Sun is a US print and electronic magazine, which has been running for 40 years. It takes essays, interviews, fiction and poetry. Payment for poetry is $100-$250. There’s a sample issue to read for free. Submission information is here. Contributors also receive a free one-year subscription to the publication. Only submit by mail. Waiting time is three-to-six months (or possibly longer), due to the large number of submissions received.
This ezine published out of the United Arab Emirates has decided to include poetry among its accepted genres (short stories and flash fiction). The editors prefer non-rhyming poetry, but it can vary from the classic to the experimental.

A good one if you’ve not had much published to date – they even say you can request feedback if your work is rejected.

*We are now accepting submissions for our Newbies Issue!*
Sediments accepts poetry, short stories, and art. Accepted work will be published to this site every Sunday.
◾Please submit 3-5 poems of any length (keeping in mind that shorter poems have a higher chance of getting published) in Word files only (doc or docx).
◾We love to see prose/narrative or lyrical poems and poems that experiment with form.
◾Entertain us with humor and wit or lay something serious and thought-provoking right onto our backs.
◾We would love to see poems that deal with politics, historical events, or poems that are a little more personal.
◾We’re not against love poems, but give those love poems some edge, something we’ve never seen before!
