AGNI

We see literature and the arts as part of a broad, ongoing cultural conversation that every society needs to remain vibrant and alive. We look for the honest voice, the idiosyncratic signature, experimental where necessary but not willfully so. Writing that grows from a vision, a perspective, and a passion will interest us, regardless of structure or approach.

Arcadia

An independent literary endeavor that's published eclectic art and literature from our home in Oklahoma since 2009, we seek out and put in print the best, regardless of its origin. The work might come from a hardscrabble poet hiding out down some county road in Oklahoma or an award-winning essayist with a mile-long list of degrees and accolades. Our mission is to showcase work from our home state and beyond, work that speaks to and moves the heart and the head, regardless of form, medium, or place of birth.

The Axe Factory

The Axe Factory is a quarterly online literary journal that publishes contemporary poetry, prose, and visual art in any 2D medium. Each issue of "The Axe Factory" is curated like a gallery exhibition--drawing together pieces in various styles and media that complement and offset each other. We do not predetermine the "theme" but rather arrive at a collection over time. Each year the magazine chooses an artist to showcase; he/she will work with the editorial staff to create four covers for four issues.

Bennington Review

Bennington Review is published twice a year in print form, Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. We aim to stake out a distinctive space for innovative, intelligent, and moving fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, film writing, and cross-genre work. In the spirit of poet Dean Young’s dictum that poets should be “making birds, not birdcages,” we are particularly taken with writing that is simultaneously graceful and reckless.

Black Denim Lit

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.

Blue Monday Review

Note: Blue Monday Review is currently on a submissions hiatus. All categories are closed for the time being. Blue Monday Review is a quarterly literary magazine that publishes prose, poetry, and art that embodies the work of Kurt Vonnegut (you could say he's our spirit animal). We look for peculiar, off-center, and engaging work. Kurt Vonnegut was a man who knew how to craft great stories that celebrated truth and beauty while maintaining a sardonic wit that makes our hearts swell with bitterness and joy. If your work can stir up even a sliver of that feeling, we want to see it.

Blunderbuss Magazine

We are Blunderbuss Magazine, a web magazine of arts, culture, and politics, an ordnance of fire and improvisation. What ties together these essays, stories, poems, photographs, comics, and other bits of aesthetic shrapnel is a common attitude of visceral humanism. We aim for earnest noise. We want to splash in the mud of lived experience, to battle for a radical empathy, and to provide a megaphone to howling assertions of human subjectivity.

Body Parts Magazine

Body Parts Magazine is an online literary magazine of horror, erotica, speculative fiction and dark fantasy. Each themed issue honors Eros and Thanatos, the Greek gods of libido and mortido—life and death. We celebrate the vast and various expressions of dreams and darkness, our primitive desires and urges, and seek to encounter—and embrace—those shadowy monsters who dwell in the dimly lit corners of human experience. Our boundaries are few and far between. We also accept art, photography, short essays and interviews about topics and people relevant to our themes.
