Profane

Profane is an annual print and audio journal featuring an eclectic mix of poetry, creative non-fiction, and fiction. We record every poem and piece of prose we publish in the author's own voice. Writing that's surprising or difficult, emotionally and/or intellectually, in even small, subtle ways, has the potential to leave readers changed as a result. To possess that potential is our definition of "good writing." We try to publish work that doesn't just exist for shock value, but rather crosses cultural and personal boundaries with purpose, thoughtfulness, and attention to craft.

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.

A Public Space

A Public Space seeks writing that uncovers the extraordinary in the everyday, provides a rare glimpse, exposes an unexpected truth, starts a cross-cultural conversation, or puts forth a daring hypothesis. There are no boundaries or stipulations with the exception of requiring authenticity, curiosity, and an honest voice. We suggest that familiarity with the magazine – reading an issue or two – is the best way to gauge whether your work will be a good fit.

Quarterly West

Quarterly West looks for writing that is: Exciting. Challenging. Risky. Unpredictable. And Different. Different stomps in. Maybe it seeps in. Sometimes, and in our favorite works, different is always already there and it strikes flint and blazes. This is what we look for.

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.

Radar Poetry

A writer-friend of ours once said, "Great poems make everyone sick." We believe the most successful poems keep you up at night and follow you all day. They might even feel unsettling or unnerving. That's because great poems make you question everything you thought you knew. We are looking for work that has that effect on us.
