2River View

We prefer poems with these qualities: image, subtlety, and point of view; a surface of worldly exactitude, as well as a depth of semantic ambiguity; and a voice that negotiates with its body of predecessors. Before submitting, please read the submission guidelines.

32 Poems

At 32 Poems our bias is for inventive language complicated by music, form, and feeling. As a rule we publish shorter work that can fit on a single page (32 lines or less), but we sometimes make exceptions to accommodate particularly exciting poems that run a little longer. Perhaps most importantly, our editors believe that a poem’s publication should not begin its disappearance, so we actively champion contributing poets by placing issues with other publications, nominating writers for recognition and prizes, and sharing their work outside the confines of the physical journal.

3Elements Review

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.

Aberration Labyrinth

This is a publication that plans to blur the lines of traditional poetry. Too many publications have a narrow definition of what poetry is or what it should be. We don't. In fact, we treasure poetry that strays from the path. We want raw, evocative, emotional poetry. We love imagery. While we don't traditionally like rhymes, we are not opposed to them if they are done well. We love the free verse; we also love the aubade. The form is up to you.

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.

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.
