Seeking Suggestions from Practicing Poets

I think I have a pretty good sense of the litmag scene, and I certainly know where to discover and research additional "markets." But now that I'm writing poetry, I'd love to hear some recommendations specifically from the practicing poets out there. Which journals (print or online) do you most enjoy reading? Would you recommend them to a relatively "newbie" poet? Why? Please share your thoughts, in comments.

I've always thought New England Review and Ploughshares have published good poetry.

Hi Erika,

I'd recommend Margie, Rattle, Lungfull, Mid American Review and Gulf Coast. There are several good journals, but these are a few that spring to mind.

I used to write a LOT of poetry once upon a time; it will be nice to get back to it. Looking forward to reading more about poetry on the blog.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions, folks. I'm actually going to be starting a new online poetry class next week--and I'll certainly share some of what I learn about writing and publishing poetry here on the blog.
