Publishing work in Literary journals

I'm sure some of you are published authors; I'm getting ready to graduate and have been looking for some good journals to submit my work to. I primarily write poetry, but do a little bit of non-fiction, too. Any suggestions for some journals that I should look into? I am not interested in paying reading fees, and I'd like to know about journals that encourage new writers to submit or say that they do a lot of "first timer" publishing. Let me know what journals you would recommend and why. Tell me why this was a good experience, and let me know what genre you write.

I don't know about journals, but associated content pays for poetry and fiction. They don't pay a lot, but its something and it gets you published so you have something to show other places. I have 4 short articles up now and got about $25 for them. You can check them out at - http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/57690/sl_newman.html You can look at each one to get an idea of hte length they will take. Hope that helps

I've never been published in a literary journal, but I would suggest that you probably could get some good information in the Writer's Digest Literary Marketplaces book. They usually give information like where to submit your work, whether they take first time authors, and so on. Good luck getting your work published and come back and share your experience.

Thanks, I've never heard of the Writer's Digest Literary Marketplaces book. Anything that gives a sort of overview of different journals would be really helpful.
