Welcome to LSW online. Due to an everincreasing demand for reliable information about publications to send poems to, the LSW turns to the Web for help. This way, I'll be able to keep updating the material, so that LSW members can stay informed between newsletters.
There is no order to the listings here, merely the common thread of being places to send your work. Names listed are those of the editors.
Your editor, RD Armstrong (Raindog to my friends) Raindog Lummox Online
MAGS Poetry Markets Update Published by Picaro Press POB 835 Warners Bay, NSW 2282 Australia $10 USDLike the LSW, it contains names and addresses of Aussie mags (a lot of which seem to be related to several universities over there). Looks to be a good resource, too! If you’re like me, then you’re probably hungry for new markets to send your work to. This little booklet looks like a good investment with over 50 mag listings (both paying and non-paying) plus publishers! Here’s a few examples:
