I am a semi-published author. Most of my writing experience, though, hasn't been gained by working with publishers or editing for well-known authors. I have spent years behind the scenes. I'm aware that my work is eclectic and often doesn't fit in one category or another. My goal is to legitimately publish my work before this year is over with, with a subsequent goal of being well on my way to a second legitimate publication by the middle of next year. These are lofty goals, I know, but I am taking the necessary steps to get there and am really looking for a group of individuals who have gone through this same process and can share their experiences.

We publish fiction stories that fall under the category of “OwnVoices.” We define an “OwnVoice” story as one written by an author from a marginalized, persecuted, or underrepresented group writing about their own experiences/from their own perspective, rather than someone from an outside perspective writing as a character from an underrepresented group.

Read our Submissions page closely before submitting. We are very open about the submissions we receive, so long as they follow our guidelines. The biggest mistake is usually when a submission does not include relevant identities to establish it is “OwnVoices” as we define the category and when there are no content warnings where there need to be.

Men Matters Online Journal (MMOJ) is a literary journal devoted to topics concerning men, masculinity, gender, culture, politics, sexuality, and challenging men’s roles in traditional patriarchal societies. It is interested in writings that examine what it means to be a man in contemporary society—as fathers, sons, brothers, husbands, partners, lovers, and in all their various shapes and forms.

In general, we prefer creative works that focus on the social, emotional and psychological dimensions of masculinity in the 20th and 21st century. We invite contributions from writers of all genders.

We aim to publish art and words for the future by artists and writers who believe they're carrying, on their hunched-over-computer shoulders, a pretty heavy yet very pretty burden—to offer us all a way into ourselves so that we may come back out with the wisdom required for positive change as individuals, and as a society. All accepted work will appear both online and in print.

  •  

We aren’t certain there is “good” and “bad” art—only honest and dishonest art… but we’ll get back to you on that. Suffice it to say, we really don’t want to be gatekeepers. We want to be a blank canvas. 

Press Pause will never have a social media account. It will never promote itself (or get into online debates) on social media, so that the art that is shared can be appreciated within the embrace of a lovely now-uncommon silence. 

Submitting to Press Pause will always be free.

We publish fiction, poetry, music, visual media, and otherwise in English, Català, Castellano, and Deutsch. We frequently publish work—or play—by writers and artists from outside the United States and actively seek more submissions by neurodivergent, BIPOC, women+, and LGBTQ+ writers, as well as their allies. Pieces concerned with ecological themes or inclusive of nonhuman species are welcome.

We strongly encourage those submitting to our journal to sample a few pieces before they do so, as what we publish is pointed and eclectic. It is worth reviewing the Submissions page on the website before reading the detailed submission guidelines found on Submittable. Authors with financial constraints may forego the submission fee by contacting us directly via the website Contact page.
