We strive to assemble a collection of literature and art designed and written with purpose and demonstrating passion for the work. We are open to unconventional work, while still appreciating the traditional. We are committed to publishing literature and art that is inclusive of diverse identities, perspectives, and crafts. We encourage new voices, but accept work from established artists and writers as well.

Read the guidelines carefully, and follow them.

For issue #4, we are adding a themed dossier on “Connections.” Explore this idea in any way you choose: connections between individual people who have close relationships with each other, or between groups of people across national boundaries; connections between humans and the natural world; connections between ideas, historical periods, different arts; connections we haven’t thought of. Be sure to submit within the appropriate section and identify the genre of the submission in the title. Also please follow the guidelines for that genre.

Mount Island is dedicated to supporting rural LGBTQ and POC writers and artists, whether rural by birth or at heart. We seek:

  • Prose and poems that buck the standard. Any genre, whether traditional or invented.
  • Art that liberates vision. Any medium, whatever can be displayed digitally.
  • Interviews, reviews, and articles that follow passion and further connection.

We love literature. We love reading it, we love writing it, and we love talking about it. We also love delving into the "deep shelf" material of favorite authors and discovering exciting new voices. At the Midnight Oil, we seek to provide a venue where new and emerging writers can be published alongside established masters of their craft, where old favorites and new favorites collide, and you’ll find writing that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, even when you know that you really should be getting to bed.

We do not provide book reviews, pull quotes, or endorsements of any kind. We do not subscribe to any mailing lists. We do not accept submissions via e-mail. Any e-mails that fall into these categories will be deleted unread, if you would like to submit, please follow the procedures outlined on our Submit page.

What Are Birds? is a literary journal looking for work that enthralls us. We are especially excited about hybrid work that crosses genre boundaries or exists outside of genre altogether. We understand the dire need for representation and diversity and strive to be changing the trends in publishing. We strongly encourage queer, trans, nonbinary, POC, femme, neurodivergent, disabled, (and any other writers who lack representation) to submit to our journal.

April Gloaming Publishing is a Nashville-based independent press that aims to capture and better understand the Southern soul, Southern writing, and the Southern holler. 

In the words of William Faulkner, to be Southern is to, "Tell about the South. What do they do there. How do they live there. Why do they live at all." April Gloaming seeks to arrive at the conclusions to these questions through amplifying the voices of the unbridled holler.
