The Iowa Review

We select most of our content from the several thousand unsolicited manuscripts that arrive each year from throughout the country and abroad. We take our mission to be nudging along American literature, to be local but not provincial, to be experimental but not without love for our literary traditions. Although you may find writers already familiar to you in most of our issues, you will surely find others who are not. Discovering a new and compelling writer, one we'd never heard of before but whose writing comes through to us--that still seems the magic of our work.

Tucky.jpgThe Montucky Review

The Montucky Review is an online poetry publication that seeks well crafted poetry from both established and novice writers alike. We hope to be the antithesis of all the snootiness and pretension that dominates the poetry publishing world. That is not to say that we will publish everything that comes our way, we won't. Well established writer or first submission, you have an equal chance of being published or rejected. We look for poetry we like, with "like" being very subjective, indeed.

Narrative Northeast

NN is a literary and arts magazine dedicated to diverse voices and visions, to creating a platform for writers who actually have something to say. With our editorial picks, we’re hoping to help to break down or mitigate the insistent voice of mono-culture. NN is looking for diverse, playful, edgy, socially aware voices, feminist, LBGT, and straight. However, any topic or theme is acceptable for NN, as we see the arts in general as a powerful catalyst for change.

New Ohio Review

We publish work that addresses the purpose and mystery of being, in any shape or form. We appreciate humor, if it's got depth. We appreciate experimental work, if it's not gimmicky.
