4 thoughts on “2019 Literary Magazine Ranking — Poetry”

  1. Notre Dame Review and Paris American? I beg to differ. Both magazines held work of mine for 8-9 months and never returned an email asking for a response to the submission. I finally withdrew both. That’s completely unprofessional as well as being rude to the writing community they depend on.
