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.

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.

We seek to publish—in paper and ink—the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved." 

We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”

Foundlings Press is a highly selective publisher of full-length works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and certain other uncategorizable material. Under our imprint The Public Books we publish full-length nonfiction works of historical, political, cultural, economic, and often local interest. The Press also produces a biannual print poetry magazine. We will accept unsolicited submissions during two four-week periods each year. Foundlings hosts an annual artist residency and poetry chapbook publication contest, which pairs a winning poet with a pre-selected guest book artist.

Akinoga Press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.

We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.
