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/

‘Butcher’s Dog’, a biannual poetry magazine based in the North of England, is looking for a guest editor for its 5th issue. The following is copied and pasted from the ‘Butcher’s Dog’ newsletter:
This is an excellent opportunity for poets interested in developing their editorial skills and gaining first-hand experience of putting together a poetry magazine. If you’re a talented and experienced poet (or a like-minded organisation) we’d love you to hear from you. Experience of editing a poetry magazine is not essential but a passion for contemporary poetry is. You’ll be paired with Andrew Sclater (co-editor of BD2) & Amy Mackelden (co-editor of BD3), who will guide you through our editorial process.
If this sounds like the sort of thing you fancy, email email@example.com for more information on how to apply. Deadline: 1 January 2015.

The publication is also open to submissions (again, copied from the newsletter: ‘We are currently accepting submissions from writers living in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, particularly those with a connection to Northern England. There is no set theme, we just want you to send us your best work.
If you haven’t read Butcher’s Dog yet, we strongly recommend that you do before submitting. If you like what you read, chances are we’ll like your poems too. Visit our website for submission guidelines. Deadline for submissions: 15 February 2015.
