Brooklyn Arts Press (BAP) is a literary press devoted to publishing chapbooks and full-length collections of poetry, novels, lyrical short fiction, and art monographs by emerging artists. We believe we serve our community best by publishing great works of varying aesthetics side by side, subverting the notion that writers & artists exist in vacuums, apart from the culture in which they reside and outside the realm & understanding of other camps & aesthetics.

We receive 800 manuscripts a year, many of them of high quality, & publish maybe 1% of those submissions. Competition is steep, so send us your very best work.

Representative Authors: 

Anselm Berrigan, Daniel Borzutzky, Anais Duplan, Noah Eli Gordon, Carol Guess, Debora Kuan, Seth Landman, Joe Pan, Lauren Russell, Paige Taggart, Wendy Xu

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.

S/tick is a vibrant mag with a lively community that appeared on the scene in April 2012. We aim to publish bright and touching work from both new and established authors. While work with a feminist consciousness that challenges the status quo and says things that are difficult to say may be hard to find a home for, it's exactly what we're looking for. S/tick provides a place for women and feminists to share their grief, anger, and joy.

Please send submissions of your art and creative writing with a biting feminist bent! Ensure your submission is related somehow to issues of interest to women, unless a themed issue specifies otherwise.

We are looking for non-fiction writing and photo essays about travel, broadly conceived. We are especially interested in pieces by writers and artists who are aware of the complicated space that writing about travel occupies. We do not shy away from the memoiristic or experimental.

For a sense of the kind of work we like, please look at our previous publications. Stories and essays run up to about 6000 words; photo essays typically include up to a dozen photos.

We publish interesting fiction, poetry, essays, and multimedia work from all over the world. However, preference is given to writers, artists, and subject matter with some connection to the South. We are particularly interested in work that uses conventions of traditional genres in new and interesting ways.

We don't want "traditional" Southern lit. We want literary and experimental work that touches on themes of interest to Southerners. Interpret that however you like, but DON'T assume this limits you to talking about trailers, hunting/fishing, fried food, and race relations. In fact, avoid talking about those things unless you have something really original to say about them. We get a lot more poetry submissions than fiction. Fiction has a better shot at being selected simply because it's more in demand. It should go without saying, but please read our submission guidelines, and use our online submission tracker. Also, please include a bio statement in your cover letter.

The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.
