08:25 pm - Seeking information on sci-fi (web) publications
This is for anyone who reads or publishes in paper (or, more particularly, web-based) sci-fi publications.

I have a friend in RL, a writer, who is looking for places to submit his clever and often hilarious science-fiction poetry. (Yes, you read that right.) I'll take any suggestions you may have to pass along to him. He's particularly interested in submitting to Internet publications, but I'm sure he'd go old-school if said publications would be interested in what he writes.

Thank you so much! :)

Duotrope. Just Duotrope. A search for Poetry, Genre=Science Fiction, Theme=Humor with temporarily closed markets excluded came up with 11 markets. If I was trying to place a humorous poem, I wouldn't actually search by theme; that tends to exclude places that might take humor but don't list it as a desired theme. For that matter, I'd do a search for Poetry>Humorous too, for multi-genre mags. Outshine is back open to subs, if he does Twitter-length stuff.

Abyss & Apex will definitely be interested if it’s good.

I second the Duotrope search. I especially recommend Strange Horizons and Asimov's (not online, but highly respected and they like clever/humorous poetry).

Win. I'm passing this on to my friend; I thought about suggesting Asimov's to him, but I haven't read it regularly in years, so.
