Where to submit formal verse


Thanks to Randal A. Burd, Jr. for updating my original list of markets accepting formal verse poetry for publication on his web site The Edge of Memory. Their list will be updated regularly.

Most editors are happy to answer questions regarding submissions. If a lit mag seems like a good fit for your work and it happens to be a specific form, such as rhyming, blank verse, villanelle, sonnet, pantoum, light verse, etc. contact them via email or on other social media to ask if they are open to such forms.

Most of the listings in the article linked below have accepted specific form work and/or claim that they will and have no or very low submission fees ($3 or less). They are listed alphabetically; some are currently accepting submissions, some are temporarily closed.
