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.

Thank you for stopping by “The Rusty Nail,” the Web’s newest online literary magazine. Our goal is to join the growing community of Internet-based English types who not only love literature and the written word, but are enamored with the future of both. We believe that the Internet has given authors and poets the opportunity to share and get recognition for their work without having to sell their soul to “The Man.” This preserves artistic dignity and lets the reader see the writer’s thoughts and soul without the often numbing influence of industry “professionals.”

Poetry: we like narratives (simple or complex), grounded in imagery, that don’t shy away from the lyric impulse.

We want beautiful language and syntactical mastery. Don’t be afraid to send us work that doesn’t seem to fit anywhere else—the absurd, the macabre—but please, no genre.

South Jersey Underground was born out of a desire to provide an outlet for writers and artists alike. Our goal is to fuse the mediums of fiction, poetry, and visual art; creating a unique mural with every issue. SJU a bi-monthly magazine or maybe quarterly magazine that is sometimes published monthly. There is no formal structure to how many authors or artists are included in each issue and no restrictions on submitted content. Based in New Jersey, with a slight leaning to that states artists and writers, the magazine accepts submissions from everywhere.

Southwestern American Literature

We publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, literary criticism, and book reviews. Generally speaking, we want material covering the Greater Southwest or material written by Southwestern writers. Est. 1971. We look for crisp language, an interesting approach to material; a regional approach is desired but not required. We seek creative works that move beyond stereotype and approach the larger defining elements that, as William Faulkner noted, treat subjects central to good literature—the old verities of the human heart.

Squalorly

We do not seek scholarly analyses or angst-driven diary entries; nor do we wish to be entertained by martians, demons, ghosts, or fairy godmothers. Those stories have a place, but it’s not here. Move, amaze, horrify and educate us about the complex world in which we live. We publish storytellers. Whether they hold MFAs or are ditch diggers is of little concern, so long as the words seem to have clawed their way onto the page, defying the will of the author, with little regard for sleep, safety or comfort.
