The Kenyon Review: Monday Market Spotlight
The Kenyon Review was founded in 1939 and has published some of the biggest names in the literary world since. While they’re not the only barometers for poetic significance, the Best American Poetry and Pushcart anthologies frequently feature many poems from The Kenyon Review.
The only reason I’ve waited to feature The Kenyon Review is that their submission window had not opened yet. However, it’s now open through December 15, 2015.
The Kenyon Review considers up to 6 poems at a time through their Submittable page. Simultaneous submissions are permitted. Poets who have accepted poems will receive a contract upon acceptance and payment upon publication.
Find Hundreds of Great Markets!
The 2015 Poet’s Market, edited by Robert Lee Brewer, includes hundreds of poetry markets, including listings for poetry publications, publishers, contests, and more! With names, contact information, and submission tips, poets can find the right markets for their poetry and achieve more publication success than ever before.
In addition to the listings, there are articles on the craft, business, and promotion of poetry–so that poets can learn the ins and outs of writing poetry and seeking publication. Plus, it includes a one-year subscription to the poetry-related information on WritersMarket.com. All in all, it’s the best resource for poets looking to secure publication.
