Southword Journal

Make a note for 2018: submissions are open from January to March 15th for the summer issue; and between July and September 15th for the winter issue of Southword. This international online literary journal is published biannually by the Munster Literature Centre. Submission is via the Submittable portal (if you don’t already have a Submittable account, it’s free to register and use, and is used by a lot of journals these days, to manage submissions). Submit each poem in a separate document. There is payment for accepted work.

The Sunlight Press

Digital literary journal, The Sunlight Press, accepts submissions of up to five poems (in a  single attachment). Full information here. There is a relatively quick turnaround time (you should hear from the editors around four-to-six weeks from submission), and there is payment for accepted work. The following is copied from the website: “We want to hear the ways people turn toward light and hope, whether it is through the arts, culture, spirituality, or humor, and also how they respond to the darkness and navigate unknown spaces. Epiphanies are born from the ordinary and the extraordinary; whether it’s a reflection unfolding during a morning walk, after the loss of a loved one, or in the middle of unexpected laughter, we want to know about these moments.
The Sunlight Press publishes twice weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays. Creative nonfiction, including essays, book reviews, and artists on craft pieces appear on alternating Mondays. Poetry and fiction appear on alternating Wednesdays. Occasionally, we publish additional posts, including Editors’ notes, contest news, photography, etc.”

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.
