More Approachable Poetry Magazines

More Approachable Poetry Magazines from our friend Brian Geiger, Editor of Vita Brevis, The Modern Poetry Magazine!

Vita Brevis

See the whole index here.

Seeing that most mainstream publications have a (much) lower acceptance rate than Ivy League colleges, I’ve been compiling an index of approachable poetry magazines to give emerging poets a chance at getting their work out in the world.

Every week, Vita Brevis adds more entries to the ever-growing index of approachable poetry magazines. You should check it out — It’s well worth a bookmark! If you enjoy these posts, you might enjoy some articles I’ve written, too.

*UPDATE: I’ve added some helpful notes on almost every publication on the index such as “WordPress Powerhouse”, “Post-Modern”, “Traditional”, “Pays Poets”, “Niche” etc. This should help you navigate the growing list!

Here’s what I found this week:
