Avatar Review

We publish poetry, short fiction, essays, visual art and prose poems. We look first for the finely crafted piece and believe in Pound’s dictum, “Fundamental accuracy of statement is the sole morality of writing.” We’re open to all forms, but have a bias toward clear, concise, understandable work that communicates, surprises or disturbs-writing that bears witness to the world we live in.

The Bacon Review

A monthly review of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and intellectual life, we started The Bacon Review because we care deeply about high-quality literature. We are also aware that the commercial publishing industry is facing difficult times, and consequently, it’s often the case that good writing is not published and authors not promoted. It’s our goal to make excellent work available for free. We also believe that writing should be about more than just publishing. We are interested in our authors as people; we want to know what inspires and motivates our contributors to write.

The Bad Version

The Bad Version is an online magazine with an occasional print publication that seeks to foster conversation about the world we live in through the fiction, poetry, and essays of the young and curious. Its name comes from the collaborative art of screenwriting, where the first attempt at a scene, that wild idea that gets the process going, is called a “bad version.” Likewise, this magazine is dedicated to beginnings: to pieces that are taking risks, trying to broach new ideas, experimenting with new forms, starting new conversations.

A Bad Penny Review

A Bad Penny Review publishes fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction--with a particular interest in forms that exist somewhere between: visual poetics, the conceptual, the varying forms and non-forms of the innovative/experimental/transgressive. It is published three times a year online and once a year as a physical object. Submissions are closed during June, July, December, and January.

The Bangalore Review

As book-lovers from childhood, the editors grew up loving the written word, both contemporary as well as classic, and depended upon them for our intellectual nourishment. We owe the society we grew up in for the books we read and the knowledge we earned. Our purpose in launching The Bangalore Review is to give back, in our own way, to society what it lent us.

Bateau

BATEAU subscribes to no trend but serves to represent a wide cross-section of contemporary writing. For this reason, readers will most probably love and hate at least something in each issue. To us, this means Bateau is eclectic, open-ended and not mired in a particular strain. Each issue is an art piece: letterpress covers, great design, attention to detail. We consider the company your work keeps. We are also an environmentally conscious publisher.

Blackbird: an online journal of literature and the arts

While it is true that excellence can be differently defined and construed, our primary definition will be this: Beyond simple obvious criteria such as “well written in a variety of technical senses,” and “original in terms of subject and style,” excellent writing challenges traditions in profound ways, and is radical insofar as it is aware of its own origins in tradition and seeks to expand the boundaries of the realm of discourse of which it is a part.

The Black Herald

The Black Herald is an international bilingual (English-French) literary magazine, based in Paris. Edited by Blandine Longre & Paul Stubbs, the magazine’s aim is to publish original world writers not necessarily linked in any way by ‘theme’ or ‘style’. Writing that we deem can withstand the test of time and resist popularization–the dangers of instant literature for instant consumption. Writing capable of escaping the vacuum of the epoch.
