Dukool

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.

Much of the writing we publish addresses the idea of place—overlapping habitats both real and aesthetic. We aim to bridge the gap between science and culture, to break out of the pen of the purely literary and wander freely among the disciplines.

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.

Electric Literature's Recommended Reading

Recommended Reading, a magazine by Electric Literature, publishes one story a week: a piece of original fiction, or a story chosen by today’s best authors or editors. Each issue includes a personal foreword by that week’s editor or partner. In this age of distraction, we’re uncovering writing that’s worth slowing down and spending some time with. And in doing so, we’re giving great writers, literary magazines, and independent presses the recognition (and readership) they deserve.

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.

Four Chambers is an independent community literary magazine and small press based in Phoenix, AZ whose mission is to give greater visibility to the literary arts and encourage their larger participation in the cultural scene. We don't have a specific aesthetic or agenda. There are a lot of different people involved in this; we like lots of different things. We don't even know what we like until someone makes us read it. We think of ourselves a heart: something organic, centralized, & part of a larger body; that connects, supports, & circulates life. We're trying to build community.

Fourth Genre

Fourth Genre is devoted to publishing notable, innovative work in literary (creative) nonfiction, and are especially looking to provide space to voices less seldom heard from in literary publications. We think of the genre as flexible, fluid, and expansive, and so we’re looking for essays in any variety–lyrical, familiar, personal, nature, environmental, travel, and especially graphic. We're especially interested in essays that reflect intersections of race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, dis/ability, among others. See the editor's note in issue 18.1 for more about this.

From Sac

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.

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.

Geist

Geist is the Canadian magazine of ideas and culture—every issue brings together a sumptuous mix of fact + fiction, photography and comix, poetry, essays and reviews, and the weird and wonderful from the world of words. The Geist tone is intel­li­gent, plain-talking, inclu­sive and off­beat. At the heart of our enter­prise is the imag­i­nary coun­try that some of us inhabit from time to time, and which often has some­thing to do with Canada.
