Excellent list of lit mags/journals that accept long poems of three pages or more from fellow poet and friend Tom Holmes over at The Line Break blog. He’s got some great resources… definitely check out his site! Note, some of these may require submission fees, as always, read guidelines carefully before submitting.
Here is yet another list for poets, since it’s so difficult to find journals that accept long poems (three pages or longer). I will update this as I can. Each journal name is also a link to the submission page.
If you know of journals that accept long poems, please leave a note in the comments section, and I’ll add it. Thanks. //

NO FEE Submission calls + editor interview for Thank You for Swallowing, NEXT DEADLINE: June 30, 2016Posted: June 27, 2016
Thank You for Swallowing is a fairly new online lit mag described as a “protest in poems.” They have several themed submission calls currently open.
The themes for the next few issues are:
- Blood (due 30 June)
- Guns (due 30 July)
- Fear (due 30 August)
- Toxic masculinity (due 30 September)
- 2016 US election/women in power (due 30 November)
- ‘Beauty’ (due 30 December)
“Poetry is a form of protest. So let this be another one, in the spirit of Against Rape, in the spirit of Catechism, in the spirit of Binders Full of Women’s Poems: if you’re done sucking it up, submit your poems.
There are only two requirements: your poem must be good, and it must challenge the preconceived notions that hurt all of us, of every colour, gender, sexuality, age, religion, nationality and shape.”
Editor and founder Cathleen Allyn Conway is featured on The Fem in an interview this week. She candidly answers questions regarding the origins of Thank You for Swallowing, its purpose in protest, and the connection to feminist issues.
Make sure to read some of the poems already published to get a feel for what types/styles of poems they publish, including my found poem, Breast-giver, published last October and my poem “Waiting Around” last February. Please note they are no longer accepting simultaneous submissions or reprints. They will get back to you quickly, so no simultaneous submissions makes sense.
NEXT DEADLINE: June 30, 2016 (deadlines for each themed issue are generally the end of the month)
- Blood (due 30 June)
- Guns (due 30 July)
- Fear (due 30 August)
- Toxic masculinity (due 30 September)
- 2016 US election/women in power (due 30 November)
- ‘Beauty’ (due 30 December)
SUBMISSION FEE: None
FORMS: Poetry and Art
NOTES: Quick response. No simultaneous submissions. No reprints. They do not read blind.
Following the sudden demise of our printing and design company in Cody, WY, I wanted to go “postal.” Instead, I went poetic. The line that released some of my anger read, “They smacked the gavel without a sound.” I really wanted to smack the banker.
I write poetry to talk. I know It won’t reach that many ears, but expression is easier, more concise, and at times a surprise when it all comes together. The backspace key can obliterate the wrong word. The delete key stops a nonsensical train of thought.
I like to get into my head to see how I’m filing all the information thrown at me. I like to get into other people’s heads. Billy Collins has the key to getting into a dog’s head (probably). His line “I never liked you” might be pulsating in many a dog brain. One of my own poems is written from a Jack O’ Lantern’s point of view. “Jagged orifices let in light, exposing strings cobwebbing the back of my throat.”
God is a poet. His magnificent landscaping, outdoor stage sets, nature as it is, can be captured by a poem written from the soul. When the right way to share takes months of deletes and backspaces, it may finally surface from knowledge and pictures stored from eons ago when we saw the world from spiritual eyes.
A great photographer might set his alarm to wake for the exact moment the perfect light hits his subject. Music set to poetry readings allows open waves of harmony with words. I was at a poetry reading one evening where the poet recited a lengthy poem while waltzing with another poetess. It was totally captivating. An artist might set up his chair and easel to create in plein air, wanting to set down God’s poetry on canvas.
And so a few years back, I agreed to organize a statewide “Poetry on Canvas,” event designed to mesh poetry and art, fitting winning poems with selected artists who interpreted the poems in fine art. At a gala night each year, winners read their poems as the corresponding art was projected on screen. A book of the winning poems and art was published each year through the Utah American Fork Arts Council.
Bound together, poetry and art seemed to bring me a step closer to fulfillment and I began creating paper collage. For two years I have been writing my short story memoir and as it neared completion my husband suggested the cover be a collage illustrating one of my more famous mixed metaphors. Years ago I was irritated and warned him, “Buddy, you’re walking on thin water!” So that is the title, “Walking on Thin Water.” Even last week, while considering a large, complex issue I conceded, “I just can’t wrap my teeth around it.”
A few months ago some of my artist friends encouraged me to have art show. The Utah County Arts Board has agreed to hang my art. The vice president of the board mentioned having two artists show in the same venue and now there are three. I enlisted two of my sisters, Christie and Cathy. Christie works in oil and Cathy in acrylics. “Sister Art” will hang the month of August and the gallery walk-through will be at the Health and Justice Building, 151 S. University Ave. Provo, Ut, August 5 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

I’m blown away by the importance and the meaning packed into this project. The folks at the Tandem Reader Awards have attracted support from some outstanding literary community presses and lit mags, such as Milkweed Editions, Copper Canyon Press, Sundress Publications, and poets and artists such as, Kaveh Akbar, Siaara Freeman, Megan Peak, Chen Chen, Sarah Blake, Heather Bell, Meggie Royer, Orooj-e-Zafar, Francesca Bell, Jeremy Gaulke, and Ruth Foley.
To learn how you can participate and for more info on their early bird chapbook nominations and fee free awards, watch the video and read my in depth interview below with Tandem’s president Rhiannon Thorne.
HOPKINSON: What first gave you the idea for the Tandem Reader Awards? I love a good origin story.
THORNE: It really started with a love affair of chapbooks. We noticed that while there seems to be an upward trend for chapbook prizes which award the winning manuscript publication, there is a real deficit of post-publication awards for these brief collections.
As April and I discussed the possibility of starting our own award, we began researching the competition, so to speak. It became immediately clear that most reader awards were charging in the ballpark of $25 for submissions—a fee that many cannot afford, resulting in a very abrupt gatekeeper to awards in our creative community. Likewise, the publishers for chapbooks are often small publishers who may not be making a profit from their press, let alone have additional funds to nominate from their catalog. We decided that if we were going to move forward, we would only do so if we could guarantee a fee-free nomination process, thus eliminating any monetary obstacles and developing a truly accessible award.
While the idea of “Tandem” began as a way to honor the special relationship between writer and editor that goes into developing, and often hand-binding, chapbooks, it became our creed to both develop an award for this relationship and a commitment to being broadly accessible within the literary community by maintaining fee-free nominations.
We kicked the idea around for a while and began developing our board, and were lucky to have both a business adviser, Kevin McGuirk, and a nonprofit adviser, Erin Elizabeth Smith of Sundress Publications/SAFTA, lend their expertise. From there, well, it’s amazing what a little heart, a lot of time, and some basic networking can do. Our community rocks.
HOPKINSON: I see that you have an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds. How important is it to you that the awards be given fee free?
THORNE: Paramount. An award with a fee privileges those who are able to pay the fee. One of my favorite awards available to our writerly community is the Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Fellowship, which is run fee-free by the Poetry Foundation. They have been a huge inspiration. We feel it’s important to continue to develop accessible spaces in our community.
HOPKINSON: You have some amazing perks and sponsors, can you tell us a bit about those partnerships?
THORNE: I was lucky, living in Southern California, to make it to make it to both BinderCon and AWP this year, which allowed us to do some networking with publishers and individuals to get the ball rolling. Other connections, of course, come from poets, writers, and artists April and I have worked with in some capacity prior.
Milkweed Editions, Copper Canyon Press, and Sundress Publications have pledged book bundles for our fundraiser; Rattle has pledged subscriptions to their print journal; SAFTA has donated a gift card to be used towards any of their workshops or retreats. It makes me particularly excited to be working with such great and well established nonprofits!
Several poets are offering to hand-write some of their own poems for donors: Kaveh Akbar, Siaara Freeman, Megan Peak, Chen Chen, Sarah Blake, and Heather Bell—if you haven’t had a chance to acquaint yourself with one of these fine individuals, I strongly recommend checking out their work.
Meggie Royer allowed us to use two of her images to make limited edition postcards for our fundraiser, and Orooj-e-Zafar has offered up her talents to create digital broadsides of donor’s own work. We also have these fabulous Francesca Bell broadsides featuring art by Jeremy Gaulke, and four great hand-printed cards by Sentimental Asylum (which is run by poet Ruth Foley).
There are even a couple of perks designed for those who may not be interested in receiving a physical perk, but who want to help us reach our goal. I recently purchased myself a new (old) car to get around at grad school this fall and she’s looking for that special individual who will give her a name, to be printed on a bumper sticker and proudly displayed for everyone in Baton Rouge to enjoy. For a small donation, we can give you a digital shout-out. We even have Spirits Writer Sam Slaughter lending his expertise to craft a donor’s signature drink recipe!
Of course, now that we have the ball rolling, we are networking to bring additional perks to our fundraiser, to surpass our $2,000 goal. The more we raise, the higher the cash prize we can award later this year!
HOPKINSON: When you say “early bird nomination” can you explain what that includes and what the early bird incentives include?
THORNE: We are allowing those who are interested in submitting, either their own chapbook or another writer’s, the option of doing so early by donation. We have two options—either to be able to nominate one chapbook for $25, or two to five chapbooks with a $40 donation. Of course, our intent is to encourage multiple nominations, and as Tandem Reader Awards are a celebration of both the writer and the editor, we are also strongly encouraging editors to nominate chapbooks they have published at their own press.
Early-bird donors will be provided a mailing address to one of our readers. Women writers will be able to also send a PDF to our email to have considered for the Sundress Wardrobe (https://sundresspublications.wordpress.com/the-wardrobe/). These nominated chapbooks will be shared on our social media (FB, Twitter) and updated on our website, allowing them to garner publicity before we open for fee-free nominations.
HOPKINSON: What types of chapbooks and work are you looking for
THORNE: We are open to all types of text-based chapbooks—fiction, nonfiction, poetry, hybrid, and graphic/comic work with a strong literary component. We understand that the page-count on chapbooks varies by publisher, so we’re allowing any collection marketed as a chapbook by the publisher to be eligible for the award.
HOPKINSON: Can you tell us a little about the process and how the awards will be determined?
THORNE: We have volunteer readers who will be picking their favorite chapbooks to move onto a secondary round of reading, from which the top 10 chapbooks will be selected. As the cash prize will be split equally between the author and editor of the chapbook, our selection will be based on quality of both the writing and presentation of the chapbook. Previous publication credits for the author nor press size and notoriety will not be a factor in our judging.
From these finalists, our judge will pick the winner. However, the winner and the remaining 9 finalists will all be housed by SAFTA at their residency at Firefly Farms in Knoxville, TN, to be permanently available in their library for future residents to enjoy.
Non-finalist manuscripts will be given as perks for future fundraisers, to help guarantee subsequent awards and to provide all nominated manuscripts with the opportunity to be further read.
HOPKINSON: If you could say one thing to poets and writers, what would it be?
THORNE: Beyond believing in yourself as a creative individual, believe in your community and be an agent of change when able.

Excellent money-saving advice from friend and fellow poet Sandy Marchetti for how to have a successful book launch. This certainly can be used by lit mags and anthologies as well!
You dreamt of Carrie Bradshaw’s book launch party (with the little shoe cakes!) and now it’s time for one of your very own. How can you make it happen on a shoestring budget? Read on.
1.) Don’t hold your book launch party at a bookstore. It may have been your dream to do this as a kid. Ignore that urge. Many shops book up months in advance and can only be bothered with New York Times bestselling authors, or are in townships with weird fire codes that prevent too many folks gathering in one place. In short, it may be tough to get in.
Also, books are a bookstore’s main business. So you will be sharing your profits with them. This is not usually a bad thing, but if you are trying to keep costs for your party down, it doesn’t help. If your book sells for $10, you may…
