Pine Hills Review publishes artful, honest, and compelling work of new and established writers, from fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to visual art, interviews, and experimental, cross-genre work. 

Send your best work, of course. More specifically, send work that are the outcasts in your own work, that other places won't publish.

Inkwell Journal, a yearly anthology published through the MFA program at Manhattanville College, seeks submissions in English of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction/memoir, graphic novel/memoir excerpts, visual art, and genre-blurring work, as well as translations. We are interested in both established and new voices, including voices that have been historically under-represented. 

Send us your best work! We emerged from a creative writing program that found its community in artists from all disciplines, from literary fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction to dramatic arts to graphic storytelling. If it works on the page, we may just publish it.

Another New Calligraphy's online journal publishes short works connected in its exploration of conflict, a term open to interpretation though ever present in these increasingly challenging times.

As in ANC's other endeavors, Impossible Task is always on the lookout for further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy and Impossible Task as a home for their work.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work exploring the human experience, our internal worlds, and life among others; these complex systems are often clearest in our slightest moments.

Another New Calligraphy has published printed works since 2009. Commonalities include mental health, identity, culture, ecology, and personal reflection. Please familiarize yourself with recent projects for a general sense of these themes and their past expression.

The Museum of Americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.

We seek work that engages or repurposes America's complex cultural history—original & unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, interviews, music, photography, & art. Give us fiction that dramatizes old folk songs or steals their characters. Give us love poetry with language cribbed from The Federalist Papers. Recent features: fiction on the 2008 financial crisis via Bartleby the Scrivener; essay on the family legacy of tomato-growing.

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.
