Other Poetry Mags

Here are some links to other UK poetry mags that observe (when last checked) the following editorial practices.

a) All submissions are responded to.
b) Submissions accepted by email or Submittable.
c) Submissions answered within three months, broadly speaking – actual, not merely claimed.
d) No submission fees.

The style and variety of poetry in these journals varies widely, and some are not to my taste (and may not be to yours). This list is concerned only with good practice. Nor is the list comprehensive, there may be other journals I have not come across or dealt with that would meet the above criteria.

The list does not differentiate between print and online journals – it is a false distinction.

The numbers in brackets are the average response time, in days, on Duotrope, correct at 17th October 2018.

Poetry Salzburg Review (26.2),  The Blue Nib (46.1) and Ofi Press (13.2) are not based in the UK but traditionally publish the work of many UK poets, and also satisfy those criteria.

The following are UK magazines that usually meet these criteria, but in my experience sometimes (but not always) take a little longer than three months to respond…but never usually longer than four months.

Envoi (37.0)
Lighthouse (74.5)
Shearsman (94.5)
