Trellis Magazine
This list includes many magazines which prefer or accept “formal” poetry -- poetry in a poetic form (usually any form in
Lewis Turco’s
Book of Forms) -- or metered or rhymed verse.     We have included several magazines based in other
English-speaking or dual-English countries, and most publishers accept submissions from anywhere.
  Most of these magazines prefer adult submitters (over 16 or over 18).  For young writers, see the alternate list
Publishers of Student Poetry.
  Please visit the individual publisher’s site for exact poetry submission guidelines and to be sure they are accepting
submissions.  Print magazines often state that “Shorter poems are more likely to be accepted due to space
considerations.”   Many of these magazines have contests, and most of them accept articles/essays about poetry.  A
few of them accept English translations of poetry from other languages.  For writers with other talents, most magazines
also accept photos and/or art, and some accept music.
 Always read the site’s “About Us” page and the entire current issue of the magazine before you submit your poem, to
make sure your poetry would fit their style. You should also read this helpful article
Submission Advice for All Poets.
