One of my favorite literary journals is Free Lunch, edited by Ron Offen. It's a journal that welcomes unpublished poets and publishes them right alongside the big names. The editor has good taste in poetry and also offers wise words in each issue regarding the State of Poetry. Best of all, even if he rejects your poems, he offers specific feedback guaranteed to make you a better writer. Today, check out Free Lunch, and send in a submission. Good luck!


  1. Free Lunch is amazing in that they supply every "serious" poet with a subscription and do critiques. Have you sent a submission?

    Thanks for the rec.

  2. I've submitted, been wonderfully rejected, been deemed "serious" and granted a free subscription. :) I WILL be published there eventually. :)

  3. That's the nicest rejection I've ever heard of - and I know you will publish there - because you say you will!
