Poetry Publishers Who Accept Electronic Submissions

I received two emails recently from poets who submitted poems to Poets Online and had their poem "discovered" online by another publisher who wanted to put it in print.

For example, Violet Nesdoly wrote "In Stitches" for our February 2006 prompt about being "in the moment". Recently, she heard from the editor of Vogue Patterns magazine, asking if they could publish it in an upcoming edition. I'm encouraged that a everyday publication not known for printing poetry would print one for their readers.

The Internet offers so many opportunities to share your poetry and find new audiences.
There are more and more places to put your poetry online or submit your poems online for print publication. An increasing number of established publishers now accept online publication as a first publication.

Louie Crew, Professor Emeritus at Rutgers University has been listing websites (including Poets Online) of Poetry Publishers Who Accept Electronic Submissions

Thanks for the mention, Ken!

Louie Crew's list is impressive. I had no idea there were that many online poetry sites!

My name is Evan and I work at a digital advertising agency called Night Agency (nightagency.com). We recently launched a new community called HAIKYU (haikyu.com) where people can submit their own work as well as voting for their favorite Haiku. It’s a great way to discover new work, get recognized, and even win prizes. After seeing your Blog, we thought you and your followers might be interested to join our new and upcoming Haiku community. To celebrate the launch of this new community we are running a contest until October 31st where the Haiku with the most votes will win $250! It would be great if you could share the site with your followers/readers/fans and send us any and all feedback you may have (info@haikyu.com).

Thank you for your time, and please let us know if you have any questions.
