Black and Asian writers wanted

Peepal Tree Press is based in Leeds, UK – but publishes work from all over the Caribbean diaspora, so international submissions are welcome. They also ‘welcome and support Black British writers’ – i.e. British writers of African and Asian descent. As well as novels, short story collections and nonfiction, the press accepts poetry collections of 48 pages or more. Peepal Tree Press publishes in print and ebook formats. More information here.

AGNI magazine submissions

Boston University’s AGNI magazine has been going since 1972. Submit up to five (previously unpublished) poems online or by post. If you don’t make it into the print publication, there is also the possibility of publication on the website, AGNI Online. There is payment upon publication. See the website for full details of what and how to submit.

The Threepenny Review

This US-based quarterly literary magazine looks worth checking out – especially as they pay for poetry: a rare thing indeed. Submit up to five poems by post or online (https://www.threepennyreview.com/online_submissions/). Submissions are open from January to June each year. No previously published work or simultaneous submissions (poems under consideration elsewhere). Response time varies from two days to two months. Do not email your submission – it won’t be read. For more information, visit the website: http://threepennyreview.com/

 

Submit to The Sun (no, not the awful British newspaper)

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.
