Profane

Profane is an annual print and audio journal featuring an eclectic mix of poetry, creative non-fiction, and fiction. We record every poem and piece of prose we publish in the author's own voice. Writing that's surprising or difficult, emotionally and/or intellectually, in even small, subtle ways, has the potential to leave readers changed as a result. To possess that potential is our definition of "good writing." We try to publish work that doesn't just exist for shock value, but rather crosses cultural and personal boundaries with purpose, thoughtfulness, and attention to craft.

the prompt

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. Unfortunately, anything that looks too much like it came from an exercise, prompt, or other such “mechanical” source gets relegated by editors to that pile with a sticky note on top that says “too workshoppy.” That is why we created the prompt. The prompt is the place for all levels of writers to have an opportunity to publish, as well as for a community of writers to find new ways to expand creative writing horizons.

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.

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.

Roanoke Review

The Roanoke Review was founded in 1967 by Pulitzer prize-winning poet Henry Taylor at Roanoke College, where it remains to this day. For the past fifty years, the Review has promoted both established writers and new voices. We seek to be an accessible read, intent on publishing down-to-earth writers with a sense of place, a sense of language, and—perhaps most importantly—a sense of humor.

Rock & Sling

The editors of Rock & Sling want to be surprised, more than anything. Surprised at the solidity of your work, the beauty of it, the tension in it, the argument of it, the freshness of it, the experiment of it. We live in a mysterious, challenging, fraught world, and we look for work that engages, challenges, or extends those realities. Work that puts us in peril.

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.

S/tick is a lively new mag that appeared on the scene in April 2012. We aim to publish bright and touching work from both new and established authors. While work with a feminist consciousness that challenges the status quo and says things that are difficult to say may be hard to find a home for, it's exactly what we're looking for. S/tick provides a place for women and feminists to share their grief, anger, and joy.

The Sacred Cow

The Sacred Cow is a literary magazine in digital format. The name might suggest that our mission is to annoy people, poking holes in their cherished beliefs. We do enjoy that, but our main goal is to provide good reading in the form of short stories, commentary on current events, essays, poetry, etc. Since good writing explores truth, we reserve the right to ignore and even tip over sacred cows, wherever they may be found.

We’re committed to publishing writing from diverse voices and experiences, including work in translation. Writing that is brave, however quietly or radically.

San Pedro River Review

We prefer poetry and art set in tactile imagery, with a vividness of local detail: characters, places, substantive objects. We shy away from the overtly political or environmental. We like a degree of pathos, subtle drama, a touch of Lorca's 'duende' that loves "ledges and wounds," and a good use of metaphors and similes. We consider all forms of poetry, including prose poems.
