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.

The A3 Press publishes work that is lyrical and intense, a bit weird, perhaps, hybrid, experimental. Prose, poetry, illustration, photography and comics that are urgent and say something about what it's like to be alive at this point in history.  

Our first five titles were published in March 2019. All A3 Press titles have our signature A3 map-fold format. That's 42 x 29.7cm (approx 16.5" x 11.5").

We encourage you to visualise how you work will appear in our A3 map-fold format. Do consider the format of our publications when sending us work. Our chapbooks will look like maps, so you might want to send us work structured around a journey, or work about getting lost (or found). Each chapbook has about 14 panels, some of which may be taken up by images. If you have work that divides well into 12 sections, we want to see it! A series of 12 sonnets, for example, or a story told in 12 chapters?

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.

Call + Response is a literary and arts journal providing a creative hub for new and emerging artists of color. We aim to introduce fresh and creative voices to the world through diverse and original art, poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews.

This journal is a celebration and an exploration made by POC, for POC.

This is a safe place for creatives to be, well, creative. But this is also a hate-free zone. Although we will accept political and mature work with topics like sexuality, gender identity, racism, colorism, sexism, reproductive rights, etc. We will not accept work that explicitly details rape, murder and/or bodily or self-harm.

We want to share the stories you’ve been told not to tell.

We publish poetry, non-fiction, and hybrid work by people who identify as or alongside female/trans/non-binary, and who write about existing in a world that tells you your stories are not worthy of art. We believe that your stories are worthy, and we believe in the importance of telling them.

We’re looking for work that is raw and real and good. Tell us the stories you worry aren’t cool enough to be literature. The ones someone in workshop called “too confessional.” The ones that show us what it means to live in your body and in this world. We want to weep with you and cheer for you and rage with you. We know that deeply personal work can be and is art of the highest form, and we’re excited that you want to share yours with us.
