I first heard of Diane Lockward from the Writer's Almanac and her poem Linguini. She also wrote my husband discovers poetry which I shared with the group. Below is from her blog Blogalicious - please check it out and some of her poems.


Print Journals That Accept Online Submissions 11/14

It's been more than a year since I last updated the list of print journals that accept online submissions. This list includes 14 additions. You'll notice that a number of the journals charge a fee for the online submission. Many submitters feel that a small fee is worth it as it saves paper, stamps, and a trip to the post office.

Journals new to the list (not necessarily new journals) are indicated with a double asterisk. 
The number of issues per year appears after the journal's name.
The reading period for each journal appears at the end of each entry.
Unless noted otherwise, the journal accepts simultaneous submissions.
As always, please let me know if you find any errors here. And good luck.

Wow. What a great resource to start from and she has a new book which I haven't gotten yet but has ggod reviews...

The Crafty Poet Named a Best Book for Writers by Poets & Writers

"In this resource for poets, Lockward offers practical advice and insights about 
establishing sound, voice, and syntax in poetry while also providing writing prompts 
and other poems as inspiration."

The Crafty Poet Listed As One of “Six Stellar Sources of Poetry Prompts” 

in the 2015 Poet’s Market

A poetry tutorial to inform and inspire poets. Model poems with prompts, writing tips, and interviews contributed by fifty-six poets, including thirteen former and current state Poets Laureate. Sample poems from an additional forty-five poets. Geared for experienced poets and aspiring poets. Guaranteed to break through any writer's block.

Ideal for individual use at home or group use in the classroom or workshop. etc...



Contributors include some of our nation's finest poets. These fifty-six poets contributed twenty-seven Craft Tips, ten Poet on the Poem Q&As, and twenty-seven model poems that go with the prompts.
