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).

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.

MOLT

MOLT is a new literary journal based in the principles of honesty and simplicity. We believe that good writing deserves to be read, regardless of who wrote it or how many pages we have left. (We resolved this issue by abandoning pages altogether.) We hope to provide a voice for emerging writers, especially those whose work falls in the gap between “mainstream” and “alternative” writing—which in contemporary literature is alarmingly wide. We are also committed to responding personally to every submission, opening a channel of communication between writers and editors.

Nowhere Magazine

Founder and editor Porter Fox has worked as a travel journalist for 17 years. He created Nowhere with a group of like-minded writers, editors, producers, and designers to create a new kind of travel magazine—something more engaging, authentic, and diverse. The magazine publishes five to 10 articles in each issue, including travelogues, journal excerpts, profiles, conversations, reviews, and even notes… We illustrate stories with found objects brought back from the field and include multi-media elements with each piece.

Numinous: Spiritual Poetry

We aim to publish all types of poetry of a spiritual nature. Excellence is the only criterion. We try to be inclusive, and focus on the poets’ own likely definition of spirituality, what they bring into their poems, instead of imposing our own view of it. We want to see the diversity of responses to the theme of spirituality.

O-Dark-Thirty

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. It was conceived by and designed for, is run by, features work written by, and provides voice to members of the military community.

OPEN ROAD REVIEW

Genre fiction with a literary slant preferred. No horror, science fiction or stories for children. Creative nonfiction should be more than a dot on the map or an incident. Poetry that’s fresh. Reading is on rolling basis. Alongside established writers, it’s our endeavor to publish new ones.

Orange Coast Review

What are we looking for? Poems, short stories, narrative non-fiction and art that causes a thunk in the pulse and a spark in the brain. We want works that combine intellect and emotion without pandering to either. Yeah, we don’t know what that means either. But we know that a work has to make us care about whatever is happening in that work. In short, we’re looking for something memorable.
