100 Word Story

The whole is a part and the part is a whole. The 100-word format forces the writer to question each word, to reckon with Flaubert’s mot juste in a way that even most flash fiction doesn’t. At the same time the brevity of the form allows the writer “to keep a story free from explanation,” as Walter Benjamin wrote. None of us will ever know the whole story in other words. We can only collect a bag full of shards that each seem perfect.

WHO WE ARE: 3Elements Literary Review has a presence in Chicago, IL, as well as Des Moines, IA. We publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and photography. Each issue begins with the posting of three elements, and ends with a journal filled with the imaginative ways in which each writer and artist transformed those elements. We exist to inspire creativity. We want contributors to our journal to have fun seeing each element through a different lens. We, as well as our readers, thoroughly enjoy the journey on which each piece takes us, as no one story or poem is ever the same.

580 Split

TRANSCENDENCE. Beyond. Beyond the physical. Beyond normal. Beyond what’s believed possible. Beyond even our conception of reality. This is the work of the Artist. Ever striving to see the world from outside the world to stretch the bounds of what one is capable of. And we are interested in this stretching… We seek the places, the spaces, the moments that exist at once everywhere, unknown and uncharted. Everything beyond and in between. Let the power of your imagination be your guide. We’re interested in stories, essays, and poems that speak to this idea of Transcendence.

Adanna

Adanna, a name of Nigerian origin, pronounced a-DAN-a, is defined as “her father’s daughter.” Women over the centuries have been defined by men in politics, through marriage, and most importantly, by the men who fathered them. Women are still bound by complex roles in society, often needing to wear more than one hat or sacrifice one role so another may flourish. While this journal is dedicated to women, it is not exclusive, and it welcomes our counterparts and their thoughts about women today. Submissions should reflect women’s issue or topics, celebrate womanhood, or shout out in passion.

Bateau

BATEAU subscribes to no trend but serves to represent a wide cross-section of contemporary writing. For this reason, readers will most probably love and hate at least something in each issue. To us, this means Bateau is eclectic, open-ended and not mired in a particular strain. Each issue is an art piece: letterpress covers, great design, attention to detail. We consider the company your work keeps. We are also an environmentally conscious publisher.

Black Candies: Gross and Unlikeable women-only issue

Black Candies is a literary journal of literary horror and darkness. Here at Black Candies, we’re always striving to create a better platform for women writers, who are often underrepresented in horror, genre, and speculative outlets. We want to create a space where they not only have a voice, but be as gross, dark and unlikeable as they want. Which is why 2016’s issue of Black Candies is themed: “Gross and Unlikeable.” Submissions are open to women-identified only.

This typifies the tone of writing style that appeals to us: grounded, approachable and unassuming. Don't get us wrong--bring the grit, complexity, humor and strength. Our tastes consider that "lasting artistic merit" can emerge from almost anywhere.

Blackbird: an online journal of literature and the arts

While it is true that excellence can be differently defined and construed, our primary definition will be this: Beyond simple obvious criteria such as “well written in a variety of technical senses,” and “original in terms of subject and style,” excellent writing challenges traditions in profound ways, and is radical insofar as it is aware of its own origins in tradition and seeks to expand the boundaries of the realm of discourse of which it is a part.
