8 Paying Poetry and Short Story Markets for Writers by Biljana Tadic

Pay is $50 per page with a maximum payout of $250 per published submission. The Black Warrior Review is a publication of the MFA Program in Creative Writing at the University of Alabama. They pay a one-year subscription to their magazine and a “nominal lump-sum fee” for all works published in their magazine. Blue Mountain Arts is “one of the premier independent card and book publishers in the world”, located in Colorado. They’ve been holding bi-annual poetry contests for over thirty years. They require that all poems submitted have a science fiction or fantasy element in order to be considered.

If you already have a large body of work, creating an anthology of your best poems might be a great option for you. Sort through your poems and see if you can find a collection of pieces that work well together; a good poetry book should center around a particular theme or idea. Feel free to call me at any time between 9 am – 5 pm to arrange a meeting to talk about my avenues as a writer. Please don’t take this as a comprehensive list of every poetry magazine you should be reading.

I tend to wrote more about taboo and social awkward terms as a millenial. So, I am migrating from spoken word and writing for family and friends to publications. If there are authors who have made the same journey…feel free to let me know the highs and lows. I am here to learn and find a home for my poems.
