‘No Falling Ribbons’ ezine is looking for work for its first issue. Deadline is 31 May 2015. Sorry for the short notice!
The following is copied from their website (http://nofallingribbons.tumblr.com/submissionguidelines):
‘we are currently seeking submissions for our first issue in the form of poetry, prose, articles, opinion pieces, illustration, photography, and music. we are particularly interested in work that falls loosely into the context of feminism – though this is not a neccessity. submissions are free and open to anyone and will be judged on the quality of work rather than the reputation of the writer/artist. because we are still establishing our aesthetic we are open to anything, we want you to surprise us!’
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.

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 During our submission period we welcome unpublished fiction, poetry and essays from both established and new writers.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.
We strongly encourage online submissions to email@example.com’

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!
