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.

To assure our readers we are being responsible editors and to increase the transparency of our editorial process as a whole, each poem published by LEVELER is accompanied by a brief note on our selection entitled levelheaded. Here we look at what a poem conveys and how. In no way do we claim levelheaded is a final, authoritative take on any corresponding poem. Instead, we hope to provide readers with another way into the poem, thereby encouraging closer readings, and ultimately, challenges to our findings.

Lexicon Polaroid

Lexicon Polaroid sews visual art & poetry together by the threads of personal interpretation. Mutability of language versus the comprehension readers, a cross between diction and depiction. We publish poems alongside their visual interpretations. The poets don’t know the artists who interpret their poems, artists don’t even know the names of the poets. The poem becomes fodder for visual creation. Some interpretations stray far from the intention of the poem, some illustrations stay true. LP is an experiment with elliptical tendencies of poetry and the art that it can inspire.

The Matador Review

We call ourselves an "alternative" magazine; that is to say: our purpose is to promote work that is thought-provoking and unconventional. We want the controversial and the radical, the unhinged and the bizarre; we want the obsessive, the compulsive, the pervasive, the combative, and the seductive. We believe that every work of quality art has a home where it belongs, and for the "alternative", The Matador Review is a home.

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.

Mission at Tenth

Our mission is to publish innovative work by emerging and established writers and artists with material that tests the boundaries of the page and taps into the energetic culture (emotional, intellectual, civic) radiating from San Francisco, the Pacific Rim and beyond. We are most particularly drawn to experiments in form or language, to works that arouse and expand concepts of self-awareness, surprise, humor, anger, honesty, spiritual inquiry and political thought.

Mizna

In this issue of Mizna, we will examine where different forms of oppression meet. Originally the term "intersectionality" was coined by law professor K. Crenshaw to address the ways in which black women have faced a particular kind of oppression due to the intersection of race and gender. We are asking you to share with us your stories, essays, and poems that reflect your own experiences or analysis of intersectionality of race, gender, class, religion, ethnicity, etc.

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.
