theNewerYork

We are a magazine of forms! Literature has been confined to poetry and short-stories (or myths) for thousands of years, and novels have been around for less than 400-years. We want narratives that challenge this triumvirate, that while being categorically a poem or short-story, are not restricted by those titles.

theNewerYork Press

We publish very short, experimental fiction paired with art. We like weird forms of literature: letters, receipts, lists, flash-fiction, parodies, vignettes, and other literary absurdities. We do not publish any stanza-form poetry whatsoever. Our books are measured to fit in Levi’s back pockets and printed on high-quality, sustainable paper-stock. We are reader supported on Kickstarter.com and post stories on our website daily.

Our taste is eclectic. We want poems that move us, a strong sense of imagery, emotion, with interesting and surprising use of language, words that resonate. We want voice. Established and new poets are encouraged to submit. Experimental poetry is fine, randomness is fine also. However, we do not want experimental and random just for the sake of calling it such. No long poems. We prefer a poem that will fit on one page.

We especially like stories, poems, and non-fiction pieces that deal with the spiritual, progressive, regenerative, and transformative elements of life. We’re also highly drawn to works about religion, Israel/Palestine, the Mideast conflicts, and social justice.

Triggerfish Critical Review

There are many poems asking to be read, but rarely are readers given a reason why we should be reading them. Triggerfish is a journal dedicated to the "why" of poetry, seeking to understand and illuminate this process, to say that it is possible to make qualitative judgments and distinctions about the substance of poetry. We hope to provide insight into the discerning reader's viewpoint. The intention isn't to demonstrate the worth of these poems--the gray area of sensibility and taste--but to talk about why we read them and why we want you to read them.

The Wayfarer: A Journal of Contemplative Literature

A wayfarer is one who chooses to take up a long journey on foot. The journey we chronicle within the journal is that of our path across the inner-landscape of our own being, as we reach for answers to the central questions of our existence. Spirituality is the culmination of the individual’s desire to understand the deeper meaning in life. The works found within The Wayfarer are those small truths we gather while traversing the breadth of our days; shared in a belief that through an exchange of insights we help one another move forward.

White Whale Review

Published semiannually, White Whale Review is an online literary magazine devoted to the single-minded pursuit of that which eludes easy capture: "beauty"; "truth"; the fictions that window or curtain each. Those skeletally abstract words for ideas best suggested in tangible form, what we want is a dialogue between art and the world lodged hard in the throat of things. White Whale Review stands as a forum for poetry, short fiction, and nonfiction from both established and new writers, favoring quality over genre or theme.

We look for writing that is surprisingly exceptional, not necessarily the in your face brilliance, but the kind of writing that surprises you with story and a clear focus and voice.

If you have a story, a poem, an essay, or something that you haven't quite classified yet, but you think it could stand up to being read, then please submit it. Our staff loves to read!

Mission: To publish the best writing, thought and information about work, or lack thereof, while providing a forum for readership to connect and respond. WORK is dedicated to celebrating the daily grind: white collar, blue collar, pink collar, sex work, food service, freelancing and more. WORK has an intentionally bland format, so that it can be enjoyed while you’re still on the clock. WORK is subversive, so you can be subversive at work.
