10 Journals that Accept Reprints

Written by Emily Harstone | November 8, 2014

Publishing your work is wonderful. However, once you have published a short story or a poem once, most literary journals are not interested in publishing it. After all it has already been published elsewhere.

But the more a poem or short story is published the more exposure it gets. A number of my poems have been published three times. This is because I often will submit to journals that accept reprints. I do this particularly if my poem was initially published in print. Print journals are not read as often and it is harder to share your work in them with others.

The following 10 literary journals accept reprints. The list is in no particular order. Not all of these journals are open to submissions at this time, but most are.
