The Normal School

We are particularly interested in essays that challenge established norms for the genre or that don’t seem to fit in easy categories of classification. Genre fiction is very unlikely to suit us, but if you think you can sell us on it, well, then shoot it on over. We thought we didn’t want sci-fi until we met some particularly compelling fighting robots, after all. We consider poetry of any style. Please limit the number of cat poems (unless, of course, they are really, really good cat poems).

Every veteran and every military family member has a story. This site is where those stories get told. Sure, there are other places to hear or read the stories: around the bar, on a road trip, in some other journal. But like the man says, “This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.” This is our journal.

The Poetry Porch is a magazine on the Internet for poets, teachers, and their students. First appearing online in 1997, it is only published on the Internet (so far). We are interested in original unpublished poems, essays, reviews, memoirs, and fiction, although we might republish work as a special posting for a featured poet. Besides an annual issue, often devoted to a theme, the site also updates on a regular basis the Sonnet Scroll, an unfurling electronic scroll of unpublished traditional and hybrid sonnets.

the prompt

As writers and instructors of writing, we have all found ourselves with work that came from workshops, random exercises, and desperate attempts to find our voices. Unfortunately, anything that looks too much like it came from an exercise, prompt, or other such “mechanical” source gets relegated by editors to that pile with a sticky note on top that says “too workshoppy.” That is why we created the prompt. The prompt is the place for all levels of writers to have an opportunity to publish, as well as for a community of writers to find new ways to expand creative writing horizons.

Quarterly West

Quarterly West looks for writing that is: Exciting. Challenging. Risky. Unpredictable. And Different. I could say what different means, but then we might receive a slew of submissions that are all different in the same way. Different will be victim to form—to the “fragment sentence,” “non-linear plot,” and “hybrid genre”. Different will be slave to space, time, story and moment. This does not seem the way to open the door for Different.

r.kv.r.y. quarterly

We look for a story to tell us something universal about the human condition. Just because our theme is "recovery" doesn't mean that all of what we publish is about successful recovery. Often it's not the recovery story that says the most about the process of recovering. We like work that shows heart and depth of character.
