Relief: A Christian Literary Expression

Our goal is to embrace real, gritty, painful, wonderful, this-side-of-heaven life. Too many Christian publications opt for clichés and placating expressions of the ideal. Relief seeks to bridge the gap between mainstream publishing and cotton-candy Christianity.

We are a weekly e-zine with a focus on hybrid work and marginalized writers. Having trouble getting something published? We want to see it. Think prose that makes you want to get up and walk across the country, characters that make you want to shout at the pages in front of you, settings that make you want to run through them.

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.

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.

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.

For 18 years we have operated with limited financial and personnel resources. We have not had time to re-evaluate the reason for the publication's existence. We are now. In the mean time, the publication is in hiberation. The website will remain posted and print editions still are available from Lulu.com, our on-demand printer.

So to Speak, founded in 1993 by an editorial collective of women MFA candidates at George Mason University. So to Speak has served as a space for feminist writing and art for nearly twelve years.

SOILED

SOILED is an architectural periodical. It investigates latent issues in the built environment and the politics of space. SOILED operates at the interstices of architecture, urbanism, and the pedosphere, providing a venue for dialogue and exploration. SOILED investigates collective issues, documenting hidden systems and in-between spaces. SOILED curates ideas from the arable to the obscene, decentering the conventional categories used to define the built environment. SOILED employs narratives, manifestoes, mappings, ephemera and live events.

The Sonder Review

The Sonder Review is a publication of art, short fiction, and creative nonfiction that strives to question, redefine, and challenge conventional viewpoints. Our magazine lives both online and in print and is based in Upstate, New York. We believe in prose that strikes and sparks. Words raw and shuddering and unabashed. Language that drips thick and pierces deeply. We believe in storytelling that is innovative and daring, precise and oddly angled. Writing which shows us the bizarre and magical and profound; which shows us a self we have never seen and truth we have never known.

Songs of Eretz Poetry Review


We offer two opportunities for publication: the Review, published nearly every weekday, and an annual Contest. Our mission is to feature and promote the poetry of our frequent contributors and guest contest judges and to attract, publish, and promote the good poetry of other good poets. We will consider previously unpublished poetry of any genre and length. Songs of Eretz is unique in that we feature the poet as much as the poetry. In addition, all submissions receive personal responses from the editor--a courtesy that is almost unheard of these days.

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.
