Loose Change

We want work that comes out of various traditions to move them forward, break them apart, reinvent or explode them, work that activates readers, loosening calcified habits of reading and writing, feeling and thinking. We are a journal of transformation; we want to change the word and world, one perception or affect or idea at a time. We want nuanced and sophisticated writing, however minimal or maximal, that makes art from the material of language in all its sonic, visual, associational, and semantic richness. We want familiar forms made new and strange modes that renew us.

Los Angeles Review

The Los Angeles Review, established in 2003, is the voice of Los 
Angeles, and the voice of the nation. Perhaps from this place 
something can emerge that speaks to the writer or singer or dancer or 
wild person in all of us, something disturbing, something alive, 
something of the possibility of what it could be to be human in the 
21st century.

MadHat Lit

We’re particularly interested in risky, thematically broad (i.e., saying something about the world and its creatures), psychologically and philosophically sophisticated works. Humor, satire, irony, magical realism and surrealism are welcome. We look for originality, surprise, intellectual and emotional strength, lyricism and rhythm. We love writers who stretch their imaginations to the limits and challenge conventional notions of reality and style; we care little for categories. We also adore collaborative ventures, between/among writers, visual artists, and composers.

Matter: A Journal of Political Poetry and Commentary

In this “post-everything” (including history, identity, and narrative) age, critical and creative employment of language as a tool for (re)signification is crucial to avoid becoming, or remaining, passive – and silent – witnesses to spectacle culture, technocracy, and the corporate state.

Mobius: The Journal of Social Change

We've never been able to answer satisfactorily what we mean by "social change." To paraphrase Justice Stewart, we know a Mobius story or poem when we see one. We like writing that offers some form of social commentary, but we don't necessarily favor the overtly political, or the overtly anything. We have a marked distaste for prosaic didacticism (but a weakness for prose poems).

We are also committed to responding personally to every submission, opening a channel of communication between writers and editors.
