The Voices Israel Group of Poets

in English

Magazines that have accepted poems from Israeli Voices members in the past year

The list below, compiled from past notices in our Newsletter, may help those of our members looking for where to publish, who want a shortcut to wading through all the lists of magazines. It contains only literary magazines that have published poems by at least one Israeli Voices member in the past year (as time goes on we'll keep adding to it). Some of them have published several. So we know they accept submissions from Israel, as well as other countries.

If your poem is accepted by a magazine, Israeli or foreign, please do notify our Secretary so that she can include it in our Newsletter and we can add it to this list. Not only will this give you the recognition you deserve, it will also help other Voices members looking for where to publish.

Voices Israel members: this is your resource list! If you know about a cool resource that you think deserves a place in any of the lists in this section - or a category we haven't covered yet - just drop a line to our Webmistress and we'll check it out (the final decision about whether to include a link rests with Voices).

Ascent Aspirations Magazine – “Friday’s Poems” section

Amaravati Poetic Prism, the international multilingual poetry anthology; 2018.

Conceit magazine group –  Perry Terrell Publishing –
Perry Terrell is the publisher of multiple magazines: Conceit Magazine, Amulet, Mystical Muse, Spontaneous Spirits (all of which have published poems by Voices members); and Lone Stars, The Ultimate Writer, Luminaries, The Enchanted File Cabinet and The Bracelet Charm (which have not but presumably would accept). Unfortunately most do not have their own website and there is very little information about any of them on the website found, which is mainly about Conceit Magazine. 

Constellations –

Lighten Up Online - A British quarterly webzine for light verse, in any format, free or formal. Appears in September, December, March and June. Even though it's an e-zine, the lead time to publication of "table of contents" items is usually at least six months. Short pieces for its "Interludes" sections (up to around 8 lines, any format) and entries for its monthly fun competitions, appear much more quickly. 

Mizmor Anthology  An annual anthology accepting contributions internationally. 

The editors are interested in spiritually engaged poetry from a broad range of perspectives: heal, repair, transform the world. The 2019 anthology will be opened for submissions by January 15, 2019.

Narrow Road  Accepts poetry of any form, but requests to note the following:

" We do not look at unnecessarily rhyming words very kindly. But go ahead and send a villanelle, sonnet or any other form poetry if you’re confident of getting the meter and rhythm right, alongside the rhyme. Please avoid sending us shape poetry."

Submission is online via the site (not via Submittable) – fill in the form and paste your poem directly into the text area provided. Submission by email is also possible - instructions on the Submissions page.
