Charles: I don't know which of these read in summer: Bloom, Zyzzyva, Hayden's Ferry, Crazyhorse, Jubilat, Poetry, Prairie Schooner, Ploughshares, are a few that come to mind when I think of your work (what I've seen of it on blog and elsewhere). And don't forget NER!
RHINO is currently considering poetry submissions! Check out our guidelines... http://www.rhinopoetry.org/pages/submit.htmlLittle magazine, big horn.
Charlie has been in Bloom. Damn fine poem too. I love NER but feel odd about submitting there. Anyone else feel this? I would do Mid-American, Pleiades is producing damn fine work, and Hunger Mountain. My goal is to get into Beloit this year if it kills me. It might kill me. I just sent off a Poetry submission and I kissed the envelope. Oh the insanity.
A lot of journals don't read in the summer, including NER."Patient Zero""Clean Slate""Blood Gospel"Something tells me they would make a great submission packet. ;) Email me for more advice. Off to Napa today.
Cortland doesnt read in the summer either. Whimsy Speaks has a great list of publications and reading times. I will mail it to you. C.D. have a great time in Napa and I hope you know the "odd" was meant in a good way. I'd rather know you then submit to you. Btw, this does not hold know true to everyone lol.
The Eleventh Muse is always open. http://www.poetrywest.org/muse.htm Yes, you published there before, but it was before I was editor! And we're perfect bound now! :-)Other places I recommend for summer submissions include National Poetry Review, Cranky, and River Styx.
I know that Octopus ONLY reads in August. The new web zine (debuted today, I think) New Hampshire Review is reading now, too.
ZYYZZVA reads year round and responds very quickly (sometimes under a week), but is restricted to writers living on the West Coast & Hawaii.Northwest Review reads year round.The Canary will be reading again in August.
Charlie,Here's a link to several journals reading this summer, although I don't think it's really what you're asking for it may give you some ideas.http://litwindowpane.blogspot.com/2005/06/drawing-blank.html#comments
Terrain.org: A Journal of the Built & Natural Environments is still accepting poetry for our upcoming "Metropolitan Mosaic" issue. The issue is out September 10, and poetry is accepted through August 1. www.terrain.org or www.terrain.org/about/submit.htm for guidelines.
Gargoyle reads ONLY in the summer. Their latest issue was stellar.
