How do I submit a Holocaust type poem to a magazine or newspaper? And what magazine/newspaper do you suggest?

How do I submit a Holocaust type poem to a magazine or newspaper? And what magazine/newspaper do you suggest? Topic: Writing a cover letter for manuscript submission
July 20, 2019 / By Kerr
Question: I have this poem I wrote about a year ago. I submitted it in two contests (one I had to perform), but did not win. It is really a good poem and my English teachers liked it. It is about the Holocaust and personal to me. I'm half Jewish, but I want to send it somewhere. I don't want it to be a local newspaper. I don't know if I want it to be a Jewish newspaper either, but somewhere where people will read it. I'm raised Catholic and I want people from all backgrounds to read my poem. What newspaper/magazine do you suggest? Would I send them an email or mail it to them? What would I say? Thanks!

Hi, gossip_palms. Start by going to your library. Look at their copy of Poet's Market. This is the major resource for learning how and where to submit your poem. Here's a link so you can see what I'm talking about. http://search.barnesandnoble.com/2010-Po... updated yearly, but you can use one from a year or two ago with no problem. Magazines and other poetry publishers have very definite requirements for how to submit your poem. Usually email submittals are not acceptable for most manuscripts, though this may be different for poetry. You will probably need to write a short cover letter to send with the poem. Poet's Market gives submission requirements for every magazine and publication. As for which magazines might be interested, probably history and interfaith magazines would be the most likely places to start. These will be listed in Poet's Market. Another place would be the literary poetry journals.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_plain... What period of the plains? The whole history, or a certain part? Great Plains, Great Peoples Sorry, that's all my tired brain can come up with. But go to the Wiki site, the info might inspire you. :)
