Important Notes:

1. This is a meta-list of the most reputable literary journals or magazines that accept online/email submissions. This is a consolidation of the rankings that we made based on the number of poems accepted into the Best American Poetry Anthology and Pushcart Prize. We have also incorporated the rankings made by Every Writer's Resource (found HERE) and Bookfox (found HERE).

2. Before you submit, we would like to remind you to check their reading periods. Some of these journals/magazines may be closed to submissions at this time.

3. Please also take time to read their submission guidelines to check if they accept the genre that you wish to submit, and if they have a particular theme or preference for the forthcoming issue.

4. A few of these journals/magazines charge a small amount to cover for online system development costs, etc.

5. A ranking of 134 means that the journal/magazine was not included in the list.

6. Why 38? We considered all the rankings and initially came up with top 100 literary journals/magazines. Among the 100, only 38 accept online/email submissions.

7. If you would like to have the complete list of 100 Best Literary Journals/Magazines, email us and we will be glad to send it to you.

A list of the best journals/magazines for poetry can be found HERE.
