Lalitamba is a contemporary journal of international writings for liberation. From page to page, you’ll find the writings of saints, wanderers, prison inmates, and award-winning novelists. These are the mystics of our time. They challenge us to live and to love without hesitation. Lalitamba was inspired by a pilgrimage through India.

Shit, we don't even care if you've ever been to LA, although if you write 5,000 words about LA and you've never been here we would hope we'd be able to tell.

Mobius: The Journal of Social Change

We've never been able to answer satisfactorily what we mean by "social change." To paraphrase Justice Stewart, we know a Mobius story or poem when we see one. We like writing that offers some form of social commentary, but we don't necessarily favor the overtly political, or the overtly anything. We have a marked distaste for prosaic didacticism (but a weakness for prose poems).

Moko

Moko is a non-profit journal that publishes fiction, poetry, visual arts, and non-fiction essays that reflect a Caribbean heritage or experience. Our goal is to create networks with a Pan-Caribbean ethos in a way that is also sensitive to our location within the Virgin Islands. We embrace diversity of experience and self-expression.

The Molotov Cocktail

The Molotov Cocktail is interested in volatile flash fiction, the kind of prose you cook up in a bathtub and handle with rubber gloves. While literary fiction is certainly welcomed, The Molotov Cocktail isn’t some erudite journal that will only accept stories with at least five layers of metaphor. We want your action, we want your rotten characters, we want viscera. While genre pieces are permissible, anything that is reliant on genre convention over story will not be looked kindly upon. It’s all about language and story.

The 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.

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.
