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.
