Red Savina Review

How does one judge authenticity in the literary arts? Intuition. And, if Heidegger was correct in his assumption that language is the house of Being, intuition, not logic, is the impetus of art and authenticity. Before we can come to either, it seems, we must purge those definitions attached to us like artificial appendages in public school, through mass media, in the university. The purpose of Red Savina Review is to record the writer’s struggle to wrest themselves from the bizarre marketplace of modernity in the quest to claim authenticity and thereby take a stand on Being.

Red Wheelbarrow (since 2000), formerly Bottomfish (from 1976)—published through De Anza College in Cupertino, CA. We believe that everything that crosses the transom merits deep attention. We believe that beauty and meaning will inhabit wildly varied and unexpected tones and styles. Our journal is well produced, eclectic, tough minded, open, lyrical, passionate—socio-politically engaged—and we value quiet & craft, the gaze into nature, the deft image, the startling leap, meditative consciousness—and great use of language. We honor and crave all of those qualities—in art—and in one another.

Squalorly

We do not seek scholarly analyses or angst-driven diary entries; nor do we wish to be entertained by martians, demons, ghosts, or fairy godmothers. Those stories have a place, but it’s not here. Move, amaze, horrify and educate us about the complex world in which we live. We publish storytellers. Whether they hold MFAs or are ditch diggers is of little concern, so long as the words seem to have clawed their way onto the page, defying the will of the author, with little regard for sleep, safety or comfort.

Territory

Territory is a literary project about territories and the maps that will always fail to capture them. We want to understand the paradoxes created by these maps by understanding what inspires them. We invite writers, musicians, and other artists to respond to maps and the fallacies they engender, in turn creating secondary maps. We then present these two maps side-by-side as a means of getting at, but still failing to capture, the underlying territory.

The Tishman Review

We believe in supporting the creative endeavors of the writers of the world. We believe literature serves an existential function and its value to humanity is beyond measure. Therefore, we will always remain open to the possibility that an individual work may take us beyond the boundaries known today. We seek to publish work that reflects these values, offers new insights into the human condition, finds beauty in the garish, and that when we read it, we want to read it again and again. We want to fold an issue closed and find ourselves richer for knowing the words contained within.

Unsplendid

Our journal is soley interested in poetry in received forms (e.g. sonnets, triolets, terza rima, pantoums, sestinas, prose poems) and nonce forms (those invented for the poem). We publish original texts, translations, reviews, and essays. We view this venture not as a partisan-like imposition of a particular aesthetic, but as establishing something akin to the radio station that "listeners" will turn to when they are in the mood to "hear" top-notch poetry written in meter and traditional or nonce forms.
