The Passed Note

At The Passed Note, we root for the rabble rousers, the smart girls in the back, the artists, the popular kids, the nerds, the quiet guys. We believe they are worthy of good literature and fantastic art, not getting talked down to and shoved aside. So we decided to create a literary journal specifically for young adults. None of that watered down school-reading: we want to hold space for the weird, the weary, the dramatic, the real.

To possess that potential is our definition of "good writing."

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.

Red Fez Publications

We obey no genre and take anything from limericks to fantasy to genres yet invented. Our key desires are originality, accessibility and quality. We like work with a point, something to say or some sort of inner majic that gives greater meaning to the pretty words and thrilling plots. That said, we're not really sure what we’re looking for until we've seen it, so give us a try. Published online monthly, Red Fez Publications features poetry and prose outside of the narrow, academic stream. Red Fez is committed to bringing light to underground and under-recognized writers and writing.

Red Savina Review

How does one judge authenticity in the literary arts? Intuition. And, if Heidegger was correct in his assumption that language is the house of Being, intuition, not logic, is the impetus of art and authenticity. Before we can come to either, it seems, we must purge those definitions attached to us like artificial appendages in public school, through mass media, in the university. The purpose of Red Savina Review is to record the writer’s struggle to wrest themselves from the bizarre marketplace of modernity in the quest to claim authenticity and thereby take a stand on Being.

Red Wheelbarrow

Red Wheelbarrow (since 2000), formerly Bottomfish (from 1976)—published through De Anza College in Cupertino, CA. We believe that everything that crosses the transom merits deep attention. We believe that beauty and meaning will inhabit wildly varied and unexpected tones and styles. Our journal is well produced, eclectic, tough minded, open, lyrical, passionate—socio-politically engaged—and we value quiet & craft, the gaze into nature, the deft image, the startling leap, meditative consciousness—and great use of language. We honor and crave all of those qualities—in art—and in one another.

Rivet: The Journal of Writing That Risks

Rivet publishes writing that breaks from the mainstream to surprise, challenge, and delight. Each issue brings together poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that test the boundaries of form and content--a surrealist sestina followed by a lyric essay on multiracial identity then a flash fiction set in humanity’s far future--the intersections as intriguing as the works themselves. Rivet writers explore their craft fearlessly and thoughtfully, and our editors are dedicated to providing them with a professional venue for publishing experimental work.

Room Magazine

Room [est. 1975] showcases fiction, poetry, reviews, art work, interviews and profiles about the female experience. The magazine was originally called Room of One's Own, in honour of Virginia Woolf's assertion that, “[for a woman] it is necessary to have five hundred [pounds] a year and a room with a lock on the door if you are to write fiction or poetry.” We envision the magazine as an open forum for women writers, including trans* persons, gender-variant and two-spirit women, and women of non-binary sexual orientations. 90% of the work published in Room comes from unsolicited submissions.
