Our writers take us to the places and events that changed what they believe in, changed how they see their place in the world, and changed them. Through their storytelling, they change us. We want powerful nonfiction prose written by women about the moments that segment life into before and after.

At Six Hens, the stories that we are most drawn to are the ones that appear like crocuses in the aftermath of the snowstorm because it is those stories that offer us better understanding of ourselves. We encourage writers to read some pieces from any issue to better familiarize themselves with what we're looking for. Finally, submissions should be about 2000 words and previously unpublished.

At Devil's Party Press we publish exclusively work by poets, fiction writers, and memoirists who are over the age of 40.

We truly value the older writer.

We strive to bring to the public excellent authors who can not find a voice through traditional publishing.

We are interested in work that grabs us by the heart, or the guts.

We want to promote and showcase writers in their second act, who are old enough to know better, and old enough to not give a rat's ass about knowing better.

We value women, diversity, LGBTQ, and damn good writing.

No torture porn, regular porn, bigoted/racist, or religious texts. 

Reading fee $10 for anthologies only. Those published receive free copy, value $14.99. Top 3 submissions get prize.

The very small reading fee helps us keep publishing. No charge for proofreading, editing, graphics, etc.

1 entry = story/memoir of 1,000 – 8,000 words or 1- 3 poems of no more than 1,000 words total. Submit 2 entries & 3rd is free.

No fees ever for full-length books. Currently seeking books for publication in 2021 and beyond.

Authors 40years + only.

Representative Authors: 

David Dutton, David Yurkovich, Tom Barlow, Monte Anderson, Heidi Hewett, Phyllis Humby, Tara Elliot, Roberto Sabas, Kari Ebert, Carrie Sz Keane, Sharon Berg

The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery and collected conversation. The first priority of The Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel.

The Nasiona’s mission is to cultivate the seeds of nonfiction. We publish and promote narrative-led work that explores the human condition. We focus on creative works based on facts, truth-seeking, human concerns, real events, and real people, with a personal touch.

Be familiar with our content and submit pieces that fit what we're about. Though we are a nonficiton magazine, we lean toward creative nonfiction, narrative nonfiction, and nonfiction poetry. We try to steer away from position essays that try to persuade the reader to take a side on an issue. Instead, we look to disclose new worlds through the lens of personal experiences.

Waxwing is a literary journal promoting the tremendous cultural diversity of contemporary American literature, alongside international voices in translation. We believe that American voices are, at their cores, both multicultural and multinational, and so the editors’ mission is to include American writers from all cultural identities — in terms of race, ethnicity, indigenous tribe, gender, class, sexuality, age, education, ability, language, religion, and region — alongside international voices, published bilingually. 

Waxwing publishes poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, reviews, art, and music, as well as international literature in translation. Waxwing currently accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translations; all other content is solicited.

Due to the high number of submissions and Submittable’s fees for magazines, Waxwing caps submissions at 300/month—submitting at the beginning of the month improves your chances of catching us before we hit the limit. If you are unable to submit due to closure, please come back and submit the next month.

Forty-Eight Review is an online literary magazine that strives to feature the works of Asian writers of all ages around the world. We believe in the power of words and its ability to bring people together, aiming to increase Asian representation in media. Our mission is to celebrate Asia’s diversity through literature. Following our belief that everybody should be able to see themselves as the hero of their own story, we are strong advocates for diversity in fiction and other forms of media. 

Forty-Eight Review likes to see honest and meaningful writing. All genres, including experimental prose and poetry, are encouraged.
