Ninth Letter

Published twice-yearly as a print journal by the University of Illinois, Ninth Letter is accepting poetry submissions until 28 February 2020. (It looks like there may be an annual submissions window of 1 Sept to 28 Feb.) Read full guidelines.

Shenandoah

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.

Truancy Magazine

Copied from the website: “Truancy is a semipro market for revised folktales, legends, myth and other traditional narratives that have been made new by your retelling or your original fiction that has these folkloric elements or mythic elements.”
Send up to five poems. Payment is USD15 per poem. Deadline is 30 September 2019 (I think this is for issue 6). The editor also states: “There is only one editor for Truancy . You may address me as Dear Editor or Dear Nin.” Read the full submissions guidelines before submitting,, especially as you must include the mystery word in your subject header!

Third Point Press

Third Point Press ezine/online journal is open to submissions until 12 July 2019 for its August issue (and 1 September to 11 October 2019 for its November edition). Send up to five poems in a single file, via the Submittable portal. Check out the full submission criteria here. Do read some of the past issues, which defeated me, but perhaps will make sense to you. There is a nominal payment if your poem is published.

Chicken Soup for the Soul

This long-running series is currently open to submissions for various anthologies. Take a look at the themes here. You can find guidelines here on what the editors are seeking. Both stories and poems are accepted.

A ‘science fiction and fantasy podcast devoted to publishing audio versions of LGBTQ stories from authors of all backgrounds’, GlitterShip airs two episodes per month.

With your submission, state whether you would like to read your poem/s yourself. Full submission details are here.
