Closed markets list from 2008 POET'S MARKET

As I mentioned in this post, I planned to put up a list of journals, presses, and contests listed as “out of business” in the general index of the upcoming 2008 edition of Poet’s Market.

 

As I gathered the information from the book’s database, I discovered some other examples of  listings coded in the index as “discontinued,” “removal requested,” “on hiatus,” “no longer publishing poetry,” and “overstocked.” Consequently, I’ve broken the list below under those headings and added comments from editors and publishers wherever I’d received them.

 

This list reflects information we received during the most recent production cycle for Poet’s Market–which began in November, 2006. Consequently, some of this information is old news for some readers, but I’m including everything for the sake of being complete. I’ve also included recent closings that I’ve posted on Poetic Asides. As additional news comes in, I’ll post that information and link to this list in updated form.
