Here at Blind Corner, our goal is to create an engaging, creative community for people to share their passion for the strange and the unusual. We strive to do this by publishing high-quality, user-submitted writing of all genres that focuses on the intriguing world of speculative fiction. While our primary focus is to showcase creative writing on a quarterly schedule, we are also a home for eloquent, thought-provoking nonfiction in the form of blogs, and essays—all of which will speak to our themes and be published recurrently.

Chelsea Laine Wells says: "As fiction editor what I'm looking for above all else are affecting moments of beauty and/or discomfort, and if I'm not finding those and being struck by them, then I'm not apt to take the piece. If I do find those affecting moments, I’ll work with an author as much as is needed if there is editing to be done. So those scenes, those characters, those emotional moments that ring with you in both good and bad ways--or both--that's what our authors have in common. They are leaping off the page in undeniable ways."

We publish online at HypertextMag.com and in our print literary journal Hypertext Review. Please read our magazine before submitting.

Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 55,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

The South Carolina Review reimagines the Southern Literary Magazine. We’re expanding our range to encompass the best of contemporary literature from various perspectives, and we want to reflect the diverse experiences of our readers and writers by publishing affecting, thought-provoking work from both new and established writers from a wide background. Writers receive two contributor copies. Top fiction and poetry submissions as deemed by the editors will receive an award of $250.

SCR publishes fiction and poetry primarily, but will also consider creative nonfiction, scholarly essays, and book reviews. We prefer electronic submissions (in PDF format only), though printed manuscripts may be mailed in accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope. No previously published work, work accepted elsewhere, or multiple submissions accepted. Please note that we cannot acknowledge receipt of manuscripts and that we cannot return manuscripts under any conditions.

Ananke Press is a small, independent press in New York City with the focus on smart speculative fiction. We welcome odd and unexpected stories, masterfully crafted with the love of language in mind. Ananke Press is a member of IBPA; we offer a traditional contract.

Ananke Press is a selective press. Number of previous publications is unimportant; what matters is the quality of the work. We like intelligent and unconventional projects. If you are finding it difficult to fit your novel on a prescribed shelf, it might find a home with us.

As a startup, we began with word of mouth and the reach of new media. Both editors have been teaching at the City University of New York for over a decade, and see our influence inflected by the work of our colleagues at the university—as diverse a constituency as can be imagined—as well as by our students themselves, some of whom have published with us. We are interested in writers from Borges to Lafcadio Hearn to Esmeralda Santiago, Ariel Dorfman to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to you, threading a diaspora of difference.

So far, a majority of writers we've published have been first-time writers, in keeping with our editorial mission.

Please see our complete editorial statement here: http://www.flatbushreview.com/editorial-statement.html. We welcome all arts and approaches, and strive to be as inclusive and diverse in our approaches as the words linked through our namesake avenue in Brooklyn, although we are not limited to that physical landscape. It's a Coney Island of the mind, after all.

See our editorial focus, and look over our online issues at flabushreview.com. We're open to anything, not bounded by the literal geography of Brooklyn but by the conceptual complexity represented by its internal artery, Flatbush Avenue. Each issue has a kind of theme, always loosely and imaginatively interpreted, or ignored altogether (although it might inform our decision-making on a particular issue, and we will always consider all submissions for future issues). The point is to be as searching and challenging, reflective and reaching as possible, connecting worlds, geographies, topographies of the mind, spirit, and body as widely as we can, with that O'Haraean grace to live as variously as possible. We want to open dialogues, not foreclose possibilities.
