Been browsing this week for magazines and publishers and I came across this great poetry site. The Poet’s Resource blog publishes links to magazines and competitions on a regular basis. What I like about the site is that it promotes primarily free competitions and submission calls. If the poetry world cares more about publishing quality work than putting cash value on verse then it should make it accessible to everyone and not exclude viable entries in the name of monetary gain! Check out The Poet’s Resource for some inspiration. There’s a little something for everyone and a good starting point for all. Enjoy!

The Poet's Resource

Copied from Poetry Library news:

Buzzer is a new website that publishes poetry, flash fiction and art work of the under 35s. We give a platform to young, innovative artists.
We are now open for submissions. Please send your bio with up to three poems, a piece of flash fiction, or art work (photography accepted) to buzzerpoetry@gmail.com

  1. Hi, Leilanie, I’m so glad you’re finding The Poet’s Resource helpful 🙂 Many, many congrats on the pamphlet – let me know when it comes out, won’t you?

    • Hi Rosie, thanks for sharing all your great & really useful information 🙂 I think so many poets who are starting out always need a good, solid starting point. I’ll definitely share my pamphlet news as & when it happens!

    So another site set up to take other people’s work for nothing – I for one will not give my work away – they want it, they must pay, some of us aren,t that desperate, egotistical or stupid. It’s about time that poetry got serious.

    • Thanks for your comment Andrew. I can tell you feel passionately about it, as do I! Luckily there are many poetry competitions still out there that offer people the chance to enter for free – I hope that never changes 🙂
