scissors and spackle

Words in their purest form both cut and repair, sometimes simultaneously. We believe that words have not been given the credit they are due often enough. Scissors and spackle wants to slip back into the power of words and is searching for artists who string them together in ways that make us remember. We are not concerned with what box or title an artist's work fits into, or how many words it takes them to get there. We are only interested in the destination. We are interested in fiction without boundaries.

SHARKPACK Annual

Linguistically and thoughtfully, it is the eldritch, the pithy, the electric, the gnostic, the visceral, the well-wrought, the purposefully experimental, and the expansive that are of interest to us. Irony is not of special interest. Popular currency is not of special interest. Cliché and expletives are usually anathema. We prefer the hard-fought and sincere to the ‘sexy’ and ‘edgy.’ We also sponsor the Prospero Prizes; OUR ALCHEMICAL VALENTINE; and VALUS' SIGIL for literature inspired by video games.

SmokeLong Quarterly

The SLQ aesthetic remains an ever-changing, ever-elusive set of principles, but it most likely has to do with these kinds of things: *language that surprises *narratives that strive toward something other than a final punch line or twist *pieces that add up to something, oftentimes (but not necessarily always) meaning or emotional resonance *honest work that feels as if it has far more purpose than a writer wanting to write a story

Sugar Mule

"The mule always appears to me a most surprising animal. That a hybrid should possess more reason, memory, obstinacy, social affection, powers of muscular endurance, and length of life, than either of its parents, seems to indicate that art has here outdone nature." - Charles Darwin

Sun Star Review is a literary journal publishing prose (fiction, nonfiction, flash, long, or simply unclassifiable), poetry, visual art, and mixed media work. We prefer nuance to flash.

We love work that blends the real and fantastical. We are also committed to promoting diverse voices and points of view that aren’t well represented in the general literary scene.

Sweet Tree Review

A sweet tree is the inceptive – your earliest memory, the stain of blackberry juice, the cat you lost in fourth grade, your latest road trip postcard. A sweet tree is the aftermath – the fireweed, the clink of soapy glasses after a funeral, the lights without the sirens, the 3:34 am phone call, the bustle of the hospital after the monitor stops, the thrum of helicopter blades over rubble, the exhale of a rescue dog. Confront us. Endear us. Scare us. Sadden us. Show us things we don’t understand; things we didn’t know we wanted to understand.
