Hypertext Magazine

Chelsea Laine Wells says: "As fiction editor what I'm looking for above all else are affecting moments of beauty and/or discomfort, and if I'm not finding those and being struck by them, then I'm not apt to take the piece. If I do find those affecting moments, I’ll work with an author as much as is needed if there is editing to be done. So those scenes, those characters, those emotional moments that ring with you in both good and bad ways--or both--that's what our authors have in common. They are leaping off the page in undeniable ways."

The Los Angeles Review, established in 2003, is the voice of Los 
Angeles, and the voice of the nation. Perhaps from this place 
something can emerge that speaks to the writer or singer or dancer or 
wild person in all of us, something disturbing, something alive, 
something of the possibility of what it could be to be human in the 
21st century.

The Louisville Review

The goal of the magazine continues to be to import the best writing to local readers, to juxtapose the work of established writers with new writers, and to export the best local writers to a national readership. Each poem and story submitted toTLR is judged entirely on its own merit whether the author is already nationally known or previously unpublished.

Matter: A Journal of Political Poetry and Commentary

Matter is a monthly online journal of political poetry and commentary established with the intention of breaking down structural antimonies between labor and capital, and aesthetics and politics. In this “post-everything” (including history, identity, and narrative) age, critical and creative employment of language as a tool for (re)signification is crucial to avoid becoming, or remaining, passive – and silent – witnesses to spectacle culture, technocracy, and the corporate state.
