Poetry Has Value! Submit to Paying Markets!

I came across the “Poetry Has Value” movement some time ago, and would love to encourage poets in our program to join it by only submitting their poems to journals that pay. This blog post  has details, and here is a great Google Doc spreadsheet of paying markets for poetry. I’d go one step further and recommend not to submit to any venue that also demands a submission fee (though contests for book publication in poetry are a bit different).


Get out there and submit!
