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.

34thParallel Magazine

Milan Kundera wrote that fiction is like a parallel reality (okay so he didn’t say that exactly). But reality and fiction mix up, don’t you think? Our lives exist in words, it’s how we make our reality. But maybe the fiction is truer? What if in our writing we reach out beyond the parallels of reality and fiction? Question life, challenge the boundaries, confront our perceptions and misconceptions. Welcome to the 34thParallel.

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 Denim Lit welcomes thoughtful writers, new and established. We are looking for fiction up to 7,500 words that has unique and lasting artistic merit. We may consider novelettes on a case by case basis. Why "Black Denim"...? In work clothes, black denim is a less pretentious than khaki and more understated than blue jeans. 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.

The Black Herald

The Black Herald is an international bilingual (English-French) literary magazine, based in Paris. Edited by Blandine Longre & Paul Stubbs, the magazine’s aim is to publish original world writers not necessarily linked in any way by ‘theme’ or ‘style’. Writing that we deem can withstand the test of time and resist popularization–the dangers of instant literature for instant consumption. Writing capable of escaping the vacuum of the epoch.
