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 poem becomes fodder for visual creation. Some interpretations stray far from the intention of the poem, some illustrations stay true.

Los Angeles Review

The Los Angeles Review, established in 2003, is the voice of Los 
Angeles, and the voice of the nation. Perhaps from this place 
something can emerge that speaks to the writer or singer or dancer or 
wild person in all of us, something disturbing, something alive, 
something of the possibility of what it could be to be human in the 
21st century.

The Louisville Review

The goal of the magazine continues to be to import the best writing to local readers, to juxtapose the work of established writers with new writers, and to export the best local writers to a national readership. Each poem and story submitted toTLR is judged entirely on its own merit whether the author is already nationally known or previously unpublished.

Matter: A Journal of Political Poetry and Commentary

Matter is a monthly online journal of political poetry and commentary established with the intention of breaking down structural antimonies between labor and capital, and aesthetics and politics. In this “post-everything” (including history, identity, and narrative) age, critical and creative employment of language as a tool for (re)signification is crucial to avoid becoming, or remaining, passive – and silent – witnesses to spectacle culture, technocracy, and the corporate state.
