Journals That Accept E-mail Submissions

Here is an updated list of journals that accept online submissions. Note that some guidelines specify that the journal does not accept email submissions, but does accept via their online submission manager.

Journals that have been added to this list are indicated by a double asterisk. A few journals have been deleted as they are no longer accepting online submissions.

Note also that I’ve added the reading period for each journal.

Unless noted otherwise, the journal accepts simultaneous submissions.

As always, please let me know if you find any errors here. And good luck.

  1. That link won't take you to upstreet's guidelines; here's the correct one:

  2. All the following links are duds:

    Hawk & Handsaw
    Virginia Quarterly Review

    You have "" included in the hyperlinks so an easy one to fix.

  3. Seems you're only talking print journals, Diane. See this link for poetry journals that take online submissions, though not all info is accurate.

  4. Thanks Vigilant Readers! I found a few others that also weren't working. I don't know why but Blogger, of its own volition, inserted numerous unwanted characters (eg %20 and blogger address). All have been fixed and hopefully will stay that way.

    Carol--Yes, the list is only print journals. I assume that most if not all online journals take online / email submissions. My list is restricted to print journals so you can save some postage.

  5. Hi Diane
    Thanks for taking on what is always a monumental task: capturing specific market niches in a single list. I appreciate the time and effort you have taken.


  6. Thanks for taking the time to compile this list and sharing this information!

  7. Great resource. Thanks for compiling. I'll be back to check it & will put a link on my page too.

  8. RE: One thing I don't get is why anyone would go to an open reading and miss the readings by the poets who are part of the festival. And yet I heard that most of the opens had more readers than could be accommodated.

    As someone who sat through four days of fabulous poetry, some of my favorite poets answered the same questions for varying audiences. IMHO Open Readings are a chance to read your work to a new audience. Some readers admitted they had NEVER read their work aloud before. Some of these people drove for hours to read one poem - and, of course be inspired. In fact, in the Grist Mill, even when there was no Open Reading scheduled, the poets stayed in the unsupervised building an sociably ran their own Open Reading.
