I've really been enjoying this series since it started. If you have a favorite market, feel free to share it in the comments, and I'll take a look. This week's spotlight market is one of my favorite publications: The Sun Magazine.

The Sun Magazine: Monday Market Spotlight

The Sun Magazine

The Sun Magazine

One of the things I really like about The Sun is the magazine's focus on the personal. From the stories, articles, and poems it publishes to its black & white cover photos, The Sun Magazine is all about being personal (and usually first person).

The editors say, "We tend to favor personal writing, but we're also looking for provocative pieces on political and cultural issues. And we’re open to just about anything. Surprise us; we often don’t know what we’ll like until we read it."

Unlike many markets we've spotlighted so far, The Sun accepts submissions year round (meaning no limited time submission periods).

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.

The Sun accepts submissions through the mail. They discourage simultaneous submissions and try to respond within 3-6 months. When poems are accepted for publication, the magazine pays $100-250 for poetry.

Poetry submissions should be typed and single-spaced, accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope (or SASE). Work cannot be returned without an envelope and sufficient postage.
