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.

34thParallel Magazine

In one of his essays Jean-Paul Sartre reflects on reality and fiction. What is it to read a novel? I believe that it is to jump into the mirror. Suddenly, you find yourself through the looking glass, among people and objects that seem familiar. In fact we have never seen them before. And the things in our world are now external in their turn and have become reflections. You close the book, climb back over the rim of the mirror, and re-enter this honest-to-goodness world, and you are back with furniture, gardens, and people who have nothing to say to you.

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.
