  1. Actually, we don't read during the summer at VQR. (That's when we catch up on the backlog! Also, many of our readers are off having summertime college-student adventures.) Our reading period is from September 1 through May 31, and has been for 83 years. :)

  2. Ooops. I said it might not be completely accurate. I checked many, but obviously not all. I'll delete VQR right now. Thanks for letting me know about the error.

  3. Thanks for the list. Now, I just need to work up the courage to send something off.

  4. You don't need courage! You've got the wonderful poems. Just do it. Good luck!

  5. Thanks for this! I need to get back in the saddle with sending out poems -- I've been putting all my submission energy into the book ms. lately and the poor homeless poems are starting to pile up unsent!

  6. Thanks, Don. I'd made a mental note to add Poetry. So much for my mental notes. I just added it to the list.

  7. I think ZYZZYVA reads in the summer, too?

  8. Z's guidelines don't specify their reading period, so I assume that means they do read during the summer. However, I haven't included this journal because they take submissions only from West Coast writers.
