Magazines and Journals You Can Easily Be Published

Blog Posted:3/20/2017 3:25:00 AM

Hi Poetrysoup Family,


I have a collection of links to magazines and journals which publish unpublished poems and stories without any submission free. Some of the magazines also have contests or are poetry contests.

Personally I'm published in some journals like Paragraph Planet, Prolific Press, Shot Glass Journal, and many others.

At the moment, I'm striving in my literary skills, so as to one day be nominated for a Pushcart Prize. The prize picks a maximum of 6 works from every reputed online journal. I have a hunch sooner or later Poetrysoup will have may poets/authors being nominated for the prize!!!  That's why I took all this time to create this blog.

Well, here is a collection of places you'll find home for your musings.....


Wergle Flomp Humor Poetry Contest


Flash Fiction Online


Prolific Press Inc.


Paragraph Planet


Shot Glass Journal

Hi Teddy, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful information. I submitted to three of the publications you listed this week. I am excited and quite surprised to find out Paragraph Planet will be featuring my paragraph tomorrow. I didn't expect to hear back from anyone so soon. Again, thank you! Hugs, Rhonda
