Michael, Susan and Erik

Thanks so much! That seems pretty definitive and really useful.

Yes. I do appreciate it as well. Still lots to wade through there. Some of those journals aren't necessarily places you should be proud to have your work. But it's better to have some sources to wade through rather than not.

This is a heartbreak.

My deep gratitude to Rob and Paul for their years of work on this brilliant and necessary journal.

And thanks for the lists of formal-friendly journals . . . but I think there's a little bit of bad news there, too: my understanding is that American Arts Quarterly no longer publishes poetry.

Is that so? Sorry to hear it. I noticed Susan McLean's New Test For Narcissism in its most recent issue.

The Alabama Literary Review is most receptive to formal poetry (if it's really good!).

Sadly, also, The Rotary Dial has ceased publication.

It never rains but it pours, eh? Thoughts off-the-cuff:
Journals I took for stones now come and go.
Like plants, they need chronic upkeep to grow.
New blooms spring up, upstarts, Rat’s Ass Review . . .
of which you wonder: who the hell are you
to start the next poetry magazine?

Some thrive and all diversify the scene.

Most recent publication on their website is 2016.

Duotrope is a good source for some of this, but so frequently publications say they are open to formal poems but then you read what they publish you hardly see any.
