We want something real, something beautiful, something ugly, or something that sings to the far reaches of our being. Make us laugh or make us cry, but we want something visceral. Free verse poems are generally favored over those that rhyme. Experimentation is encouraged.

Armchair/Shotgun

At Armchair/Shotgun, we do not care about your bio. We read all submissions anonymously, and conceal even an author’s name until a piece has been selected for publication. We feel that good writing does not know one MFA program from another. It does not know a Ph.D. from a high school drop-out. Good writing knows only story. We accept poetry, fiction, non-fiction and visual arts submissions for publication on real honest-to-goodness paper.

Artful Dodge has always been attracted to writing with a sense of place and cultural landscape. Besides new American fiction, poetry and narrative essay, we’re also interested in contemporary literature in translation from all over the globe. In fact, since 1990 we have run a special “Poets as Translators” section in each issue, in which prominent and emerging American poets present both their own poetry and translation work side by side. Our interview series has included conversations with Jorge Luis Borges, Gwendolyn Brooks, Terry Tempest Williams, and Czeslaw Milosz.

Artichoke Haircut

Artichoke Haircut was created not to reaffirm the editors pre-existing aesthetic prejudices, just the opposite. We were bored of much of the contemporary literature we had been reading and much of what had been force-fed to us by larger literary publications. We wanted to be surprised and we wanted to publish a magazine that would surprise our readers. For that reason, we strive to publish the best work from around the country by up-and-coming writers who have yet to have their voices heard by a large audience.
