The Drum Literary Magazine

The Drum is a literary magazine with a twist. You don't read The Drum. You listen to it. We publish short fiction, essays, and novel excerpts exclusively in audio form, read aloud by the author. The Drum is looking for work that pays close attention to language while never losing sight of the narrative drive. We want stories that really do tell a story. And essays that engage in the complexity of an idea.

Dukool Magazine is an international news and culture magazine. Translating roughly as "Two Shores," Dukool is for Asian-Indian expatriates living in the United States, abroad, but its audience is even broader than that. We are housed and published in the USA, and our bi-lingual content form has both a Bengali language and English side. As such, Dukool is the only magazine of its kind. We are actively seeking writers to join as contributors in fiction, poetry, and non-fiction.

El Portal

We want anything about the West. West is a bullet-riddled ‘85 Grand Marquis, a gleaming spaceship over Roswell, a cowboy paying for his latte with an Amex-card, an alien wondering where in the world to get the golden iPhone. West is where it hurts, West is the rattlesnake you didn’t hear, the dust storm sanding your car, the champagne underneath the Hollywood sign, the checkout line of a grocery store that doesn’t carry mandarin-orange segments in fruit juice, green-chile and cheese burritos from the 24-hour gas station. West is when there’s no West left. West is where you always wanted to be.

EOAGH: A Journal of the Arts

EOAGH: A Journal of the Arts is concerned with reading as a process, the productive chaos of investigative poetic work. These acts of attention explore the close listening inherent not just in writing but also in being written. Inspired by Whitman's assertion that "Reading is a gymnast's act," we see readings as embodied, interdisciplinary responses that engage with one's environment through ekphrasis, phenomenology, queering, conceptual multiplicity, density and difficulty.

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.

Foundling_Review_Nov09.jpgFoundling Review

What makes Foundling Review different? Nothing much. We hold PhD and Masters degrees in areas that are totally unrelated to fine arts. But we love reading, writing, and have an overwhelming passion for the well-crafted word.

Four Chambers

Four Chambers is an independent community literary magazine based in Phoenix, AZ. We don't have an aesthetic. We don't know what we like. We like so many things. We're publishing contemporary literature. We don't know what that means. Isn't everything contemporary literature? That means so many things. We just love writing. We love reading. Our lives would be less meaningful without them. We wouldn't know anybody. We wouldn't do anything. We're a heart: something organic, centralized, & part of a larger body; that connects, supports, & circulates life. We're publishing work to build community.

Fourth Genre

Fourth Genre is devoted to publishing notable, innovative work in literary (creative) nonfiction. We think of the genre as flexible, fluid, and expansive, and so we’re looking for essays–lyrical, familiar, personal, nature, environmental, travel, cultural, and especially graphic—that knock our socks off.

Someone said art should "disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed." Fractal seeks work of that vein. We want stories and poems that will have us fighting the urge to plagiarize. Send us your best and your brightest—the work that will remind us why we first fell in love with language. Write about what keeps you up at night. Give us an adventure. Take us somewhere new.

Our philosophy is to allow artists of nonfiction as much freedom as possible. By this technique, we have presented memoirists, short story writers, journalists, political activists, novelists, poets, comedians, musicians and many others to promote the vast and vital world of storytelling. In other words, we are less concerned about genre boundaries and more interested in your version of the truth, your truth, in whatever form it takes.

freeze frame fiction is a quarterly flash fiction publication. The idea: any genre, no content restrictions—just good flash fiction. We pay authors semi-pro rates to publish online and in illustrated ebooks, with an annual print volume in the works. Pieces remain online for three months, and are then published in illustrated ebooks, released at the start of the next quarter. We also publish semi-annual themed volumes, with themes such as experimental-form flash fiction. We aim to represent both new and established authors.

From Sac

We publish writers that reside in Northern California. We are looking for well written, polished work. We accept all genres, so long as they address more than the genre itself. We are of the belief that there is no 'right' way to write a story. Be creative. Rethink what it means to tell a story. Shape is just as important as words. Do not want: Pornography, gratuitous violence, vampires, werewolves, Fan Fiction, political agendas, slice-of-life/autobiography, children's stories, etc.

The Furious Gazelle

The Furious Gazelle is striving to provide the best collection of original writing and art from across the World Wide Web. We’re furious because we can never have enough submissions. Before you submit to the Furious Gazelle, ask yourself the following about your submission: Does it have a good story? Is it compulsively readable? Are you a living human being who has written some words? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, we encourage you to submit.

Garbanzo Literary Journal

A bean. The garbanzo bean...found throughout the world in nearly every culture’s cooking, and a staple of the vegan diet...is an amazingly diverse bean capable of being bread flour, one thousand flavors of hummus, is full of protein, can look (depending on one’s perspective) like a heart or a mooning buttocks, and is one of the elder crops of humankind. As such, it is the perfect mascot for a literary magazine.
