Fiction Southeast

Our Mission Fiction Southeast is an online literary journal dedicated to flash fiction. The mission of Fiction Southeast is to showcase fiction from today’s most promising writers, and to create an online literary journal that allows readers to quickly and easily access quality writing from their laptops, iPads, and cell phones. Since electronic reading devices (and to some extent laptops for that matter) make reading long pieces of writing less enjoyable, we have chosen to dedicate the journal to flash fiction.

The Fiddleback

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.

Fractal Literary Magazine

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.

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.

The Golden Key

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm chose “The Golden Key” to end their collection of fairy tales as a reminder that there is always more to come, an endless reserve of stories still yet untold. In the same spirit, The Golden Key seeks to publish poetry and fiction that is open to the strange and marvelous possibilities of the world around us. Each issue explores one of the wonderful things one might find upon opening the iron chest. Each celebrates the curiosity and enchantment of the Grimms’ tale with work that is odd, surprising, and unafraid to venture down the unknown path.
