Mastodon publishes a spectrum of literary and commercial genres, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essays, and special interest (cookbooks, academic, YA, and others). Our goal is to bring diverse and uncensored writing to life in many shapes and forms.
Our goal is to promote creative artists and give them the recognition they deserve. We also seek to provide opportunities for growth and learning for artists. We host events throughout the school year, feature artists’ work online, and release a literary magazine each fall and spring semester.
We accept entries of the following types: art, essay, music lyrics, photography, plays, poetry, and short story (fiction and non-fiction).
Now that you know about us, #ShareYourAura.
With Aura the potential is limitless. This literary arts magazine is about celebrating human experiences and cultivating passionate artists from across the world. We connect poets and artists, writers and digital illustrators, to create a cohesive narrative. The power of art is something that inspires all of us, when we share our aura through writing we are are affecting others without even realizing it. We accept submissions throughout the year, you can learn more by following us on social media (Insta: aura_uab) (twitter: AuraUAB) and (Aura Literary Arts Review on Facebook).
Each issue of COG is a curiously constructed curation offered up by the students of Cogswell College. COG's writers thrill with skillfully wrought and cohesive narratives; insight and intensity; imagery and attitude - alternating nimbly between closely examined moments, characters or nuances and larger human themes. COG is not a venue for student work; rather, as of March 2018, COG had received submissions from writers working in 24 countries beyond the U.S.
In addition to publishing traditional text-based work, check out Cogitate - our audio broadcast - and the video series. We consider submissions in both categories, as well as cover art submissions.
Parhelion Literary Magazine welcomes submissions for fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art. We are especially interested in strong and diverse voices, compelling stories, and innovative narrative technique.
Please read the magazine. Take a look at what kind of work we're publishing, and follow the submission guidelines. Send us your best work—we look forward to receiving it!

Black Spot Books is a publisher of the fantastic, specializing in "dark literature" titles that include work in thrillers, speculative, science fiction, and fantasy. We primarily publish novel-length work in these genres, however we occassionally also consider novellas as well.
We publish exclusively the openings of unpublished novels, accompanied by brief Authors' Statements. In each issue, we feature a range of genres, including literary dramas, mysteries, science fiction, and historical fiction.
We are looking for novel openings in every genre, with intriguing characters and premises, but above all we prioritize polished, confident writing.
