32 Poems

32 Poems accepts submissions year round. As evident by the literary magazine’s name, they do not accept poems that are longer than thirty-two lines (about a page) Because I can’t say it better, here’s what 32 Poems is all about: “At 32 Poems our bias is for engaging language complicated by music, form, and sentiment.”

Arcadia

Arcadia accepts submissions year round. The literary magazine has almost no limitations. Why? Well I’ll just let them say it: “We have become increasingly aware of the limitations other journals pin on themselves. They only want a certain word count, a certain brushstroke, a certain aesthetic. We want to put an end to that. We want to see your very best work. Novella, short story, poem, painting, photograph, stand-up comedy routine, album, short film, mockumentary, epic poem about the Dukes of Hazzard, we don’t care. We want to see it, read it, hear it, and love it.”

  • Send no more than three to five poems.
  • Submit online for a $3 reading fee.
  • Contributors receive two copies of the issue.
Artichoke Haircut

Artichoke Haircut accepts poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. The literary magazine accepts submissions year round and does not have many (if any) guidelines regarding style, except that “if your three-year old would enjoy what you wrote, don’t submit it.” Seems like a decent standard to me.

  • Send no more than three poems and a fiction piece of no more than 2,000 words.
  • Submit online via email to submit@artichokehaircut.com
  • Contributors receive one copy of the issue.
