The Fiddleback

We look for writing that pushes the boundaries of language, for writers who would never be clichéd enough to use the phrasing “pushes the boundaries of language.” We believe that strong writers are mindful of the words they hire to represent them and understand that infinitudes can be built or lost within the slippery confines of the sentence. We are tired of stories and poems that don’t play for keeps. We are more inclined toward the outlandish, toward the unsayable, toward the spectacle.

Without restricting ourselves to a particular genre, media, or theme, we aim to publish interesting, quality works, and every issue has a unique flavour. Each of our two General Editors takes ownership of at least one issue per year, acting as the chief editor (or Uber-editor) for a particular issue, and leaves one issue per year open for a Guest Editor to act as Uber-editor.  This is just one more way in which Forge celebrates the diversity of contributors while exercising our own unique style, issue by issue.

We are like the orphaned children of deposed nobility, walking in the aftermath of their advances and retreats; their hundred visions and revisions.

The Golden Key

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm chose “The Golden Key” to end their collection of fairy tales as a reminder that there is always more to come, an endless reserve of stories still yet untold. In the same spirit, The Golden Key seeks to publish poetry and fiction that is open to the strange and marvelous possibilities of the world around us. Each issue explores one of the wonderful things one might find upon opening the iron chest. Each celebrates the curiosity and enchantment of the Grimms’ tale with work that is odd, surprising, and unafraid to venture down the unknown path.

Maudlin House

Maudlin House is a monthly literary publication that welcomes unsolicited flash, poetry and fiction submissions by both emerging, and established authors. We encourage you to create literature that explores the human condition. We want to bear witness to the human circus, and the chains to which we are confined. Let your work drip with sentimentality, and emotion. At Maudlin, we want you to be zealous. Belong to where you don’t belong. Create art. Live, don’t make a living. Break down the barriers and make your words come to life. Show us the collected truth that makes us who we are.

Miniature Magazine

Great things can come in the smallest packages. Puppies. Life-creating microscopic organisms. Gum. The list goes on and on… Miniature Magazine is a quarterly online magazine dedicated to creating a platform for writing that isn’t undermined or jeopardized by its small stature. We aim to publish writing that makes the most of being what some might call miniature. In addition to fiction, poetry, essays and prose, we also publish art and illustration. All written content falls near or under the 1,500-word range, showing how much can be done with a little.

The Missing Slate

The Missing Slate is an online art and literary journal with roots in Pakistan and an international editorial team. The magazine aims both to promote new writing from across the world to a South Asian audience and to promote new writing from South Asia to an audience across the world. We are not afraid to publish material that would be considered ‘taboo’ by similar magazines, and we aim to include previously unpublished writers in every issue. As a non-profit organisation, we continue to rely on the support of a global network of readers and contributors.

Mixitini Matrix is a multigenre, multidisciplinary journal of creative collaboration. That means if you did something creative with someone else or even if you just watched, we want to know about it. If you are a participant or a voyeur, a collaborator or a critic, send us the details. Pictures would be nice.

Mobius: The Journal of Social Change

We've never been able to answer satisfactorily what we mean by "social change." To paraphrase Justice Stewart, we know a Mobius story or poem when we see one. We like writing that offers some form of social commentary, but we don't necessarily favor the overtly political, or the overtly anything. We have a marked distaste for prosaic didacticism (but a weakness for prose poems).

We also publish work originally written in languages other than English, together with translations.

The Molotov Cocktail

The Molotov Cocktail is interested in volatile flash fiction, the kind of prose you cook up in a bathtub and handle with rubber gloves. While literary fiction is certainly welcomed, The Molotov Cocktail isn’t some erudite journal that will only accept stories with at least five layers of metaphor. We want your action, we want your rotten characters, we want viscera. While genre pieces are permissible, anything that is reliant on genre convention over story will not be looked kindly upon. It’s all about language and story.

MOLT

MOLT is a new literary journal based in the principles of honesty and simplicity. We believe that good writing deserves to be read, regardless of who wrote it or how many pages we have left. (We resolved this issue by abandoning pages altogether.) We hope to provide a voice for emerging writers, especially those whose work falls in the gap between “mainstream” and “alternative” writing—which in contemporary literature is alarmingly wide. We are also committed to responding personally to every submission, opening a channel of communication between writers and editors.

The Montucky Review

The Montucky Review is an online poetry publication that seeks well crafted poetry from both established and novice writers alike. We hope to be the antithesis of all the snootiness and pretension that dominates the poetry publishing world. That is not to say that we will publish everything that comes our way, we won't. Well established writer or first submission, you have an equal chance of being published or rejected. We look for poetry we like, with "like" being very subjective, indeed.

Mudlark (An Electronic Journal of Poetry and Poetics)

We mean, at Mudlark, to present and preserve accomplished work that locates itself anywhere on the spectrum of contemporary practice. We want poems, of course, but we want essays, too, that make us read poems (and write them?) differently somehow.
