Trish Hopkinson

Most editors are happy to answer questions regarding submissions. If a lit mag seems like a good fit for your work and it happens to be a collaboration, found poem, or other more nontraditional form, contact them via email or on other social media to ask if they are open to such forms. If you receive a response and can share it with me here, I’ll note it for others in the future.

Most of the listings below have accepted found work or other unusual formats of poetry and/or claim that they will. They are listed alphabetically; some are currently accepting submissions, some are temporarily closed. I’ve also included a link to their Duotrope page, which will allow you to track deadlines if you currently subscribe to Duotrope.

enter their congregational shrine – For this is the ancient land of Fluweeltjie where only a selected few is granted the opportunity to uncover its secrets divine –

You might just be aware of a delicate creature with a peculiar stare as you wander on an unfamiliar path hoping to find your way back to the start, it might even seem to know your name but be vigilant as it lures you to its secret lair with hissings of magical grandeur for it is the rare korrelkop, a devious little konyn chosen to trick…
