Submitting poems and short stories to magazines was something mentioned at the Creative Writing Day, so I thought we’d start a list of magazines here.

Most of these titles have websites (Google them) that tell you what they publish, how often, and what their submission guidelines are. ALWAYS read the guidelines and follow them exactly. Readers are asked to suggest additions to this list.
The Saison Poetry Library in London’s South Bank Centre is the UK’s largest poetry library. It has the largest lists of ‘live’ magazines and e-magazines. Here’s the link.
Here are some links to online publications (web-zines, e-zines, call them what you like). Why not try submitting poems to these sites? Members are asked to send me details of any other e-publications they come across.
Note that each of these sites will have guidelines on how and what to submit. Note also that publication on the web constitutes ‘publication’ within the definition of that word. Some magazines won’t accept work that’s previously been published online.
Karen lists the online poetry magazine Antiphon, which I’ve not come across before, but it sounds good. Link.
Another good one for poetry is Snakeskin. Link
qarrtsiluni is an ambitious zine which usually features themed issues. Link
The online presence of Poetry Scotland magazine has its famous ‘Open Mouse’ page, which I edit. Read the guidelines and send something. Link
Playwrights Studio has a monthly e-bulletin which lists opportunities for playwrights – stage, screen and radio. Link
