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.

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 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.

The James Franco Review

The James Franco Review is visibility of underrepresented and misrepresented artists. It's also an experiment where we are testing: What happens when writers' work is read through an anonymous submission system? What happens when editors change every two months, when there are no intermediary readers, and everything is chosen by the genre editor? Our hope is that the experiment will result in a diversity of literature and of writers.
