April is National Poetry Month. To celebrate, here is a list of poetry markets that accept poetry submissions in April 2019. They do not charge a fee to publish, or they have fee-free options (like free mailed submissions, or free online submissions during certain periods), and many of them pay writers. Several magazines and websites publish other genres also, like fiction, nonfiction, reviews, and scripts. Here they are, in no particular order.

A lot of poetry places, to be sure. Thanks for the info, Bill.
