Paying Poetry Markets For Writers By Timmy Peace

Want to get paid to write poetry? Good. But, should you quit your other writing jobs solely to pursue poetry jobs? Probably not!

Here are publications that pay for poetry:

1. Rattle: This is my favorite site for writing and submitting poetry. You can also send up to four poems to them at a time. Their deadline for submissions each week is Friday at midnight. “Contributors in print receive $200/poem and a complimentary one-year subscription to the magazine. Online contributors receive $100/poem.”

2. The Sun Magazine: They pay $100-$200 for poetry. They also accept personal essays and fiction, and pay $300-$2000 for those.

3. Crazy Horse: A literary journal that also publishes poetry. They prefer previously unpublished pieces. Submissions should be a set of three to five poems. They pay $20 per page with a maximum of $200.

4. Arc Poetry Magazine: They not only publish poetry, but articles about poetry as well. Submissions must not exceed three poems. They pay $50 per page for poetry or prose that is published in the magazine.

5. The Three Penny Review: The Three Penny Review is a well regarded journal of the arts and society which as been published since 1980. They only accept email submission of poems. They pay $200 per poem and they do not accept poems that have previously been published elsewhere. Poetry should be 100 lines or less.
