We at Variety Pack try to live up to our namesake! A bedrock of diverse voices, expressing a variety of arts & letters. We are open to both genre and literary. We have an aesthetic, but it's a broad atlas rather than a narrow stream!

Please read our guidelines carefully! Read previous issues, but also feel free to send us something that we haven't published yet. Note* Reading periods will be subject to change. As of next month, we will be reading for our fifth issue!

Korra

I write in a lot of different genres--short stories, poetry, novels, essays, memoir; horror, fantasy, speculative fiction, literary fiction. Much of what I've been writing lately has been a mix of essays on social justice issues, personal/narrative essays, and writing craft; some short horror/folklore-inspired stories; a handful of poems; and a memoir. I'm currently exploring the themes of intergenerational trauma, biracialism, the American Dream, subverting the "madwoman in the attic" trope, justice in the horror genre, and the picaresque/maqamat as a form. Carmen Maria Machado and Roxane Gay are the authors whose work probably best resembles my current work.

I'm looking for ideally a local (NYC-based) writing group that I can grow alongside, who can help me see what I perhaps can't in my writing because I'm too close to it and who can suggest particular form and craft development--so for this reason, I'm looking for a group of intermediate or advanced writers, not beginners. For right now, despite vaccines, I'd like to stay remote/digital, but once the pandemic has dissipated, I'd like to meet in person. I don't write for children, so I'm looking for a group of writers outside of the children's/YA world.

I have a B.A. in creative writing and business administration from Iowa's Coe College, alma mater of Paul Engle. I've taught and tutored in English Language Arts and English for Students of Other Languages, and I freelance edit (though this is currently on hiatus) and work full-time in trade publishing in a non-editorial capacity.

Moxy is a literary magazine that focuses on creative nonfiction - work with a nonfiction subject matter, written with the imaginative verve and stylistic skill of the best fiction. We publish criticism, essays, travel writing, memoir, and pieces that blur the boundaries in between. We also feature original artwork and cartoons. 

Submissions should be between 1000 and 4000 words. We accept simultaneous submissions and favour UK-style punctuation (en-dashes not em-dashes, single not double quotation marks). We also accept pitches for as yet unwritten pieces. Please ensure you read the full submissions guidelines on our website before sending in your work.

Intima: A Journal of Narrative Medicine is a literary journal dedicated to promoting the theory and practice of narrative medicine, an interdisciplinary field that enhances healthcare through the effective communication, empathy and understanding between clinicians, caregivers and patients. Our name Intima has a specific resonance in the field: For us, narrative involves the intimate interface between people, who yield and gain from the experience of stories involving the clinical encounter.

Intima publishes two issues a year: Spring and Fall with periodic essay contests. Sign up for our notification email list for our 'call for submissions' announcements.
