After a few weeks off, it's time to bring back the Monday Market Spotlight series. This week's spotlight is in my neck of the woods: The Georgia Review!
The Georgia Review just re-opened their submission period--as they do not read between May 15 and August 15 each year. A quarterly publication published by The University of Georgia, The Georgia Review publishes fiction, essays, graphics, book reviews, and--of course--poetry!
This literary publication has published some of the biggest names in poetry, but they publish new voices too. From the guidelines: "We seek the best work we can find, whether by Nobel laureates and Pulitzer Prize-winners or by little-known (even previously unpublished) writers."
The Georgia Review pays $4 per line for poetry, and the editors make an effort to ensure that accepted works are published within a year of acceptance. Poets considering submitting have two options: online submission manager (there is a $3 fee tied to this) or by post (no fee, but you do have to pay for postage).

The 2016 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.
