WomenArts Quarterly Journal (WAQ), an initiative of Women in the Arts, aspires to nurture, provide support, and challenge women-identified artists of all cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, and abilities in their role in the arts and seeks to heighten the awareness and understanding of the achievements of women creators, by providing audiences with historical and contemporary examples of the work of women writers, composers, and artists.

WAQ provides readers with contemporary examples of the work of women-identified creators, and therefore, seeks submissions by women-identified creators only. We do not wish to publish work that exclusively addresses the experience or concept of womanhood. Furthermore, it is not necessary for the subject matter of work submitted to pertain to womanhood at all.

The Furious Gazelle is striving to provide the best collection of original writing and art from across the World Wide Web. We’re furious because we can never have enough submissions. Before you submit to the Furious Gazelle, ask yourself the following about your submission: Does it have a good story? Is it compulsively readable? Are you a living human being who has written some words? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, we encourage you to submit.

We are currently running a Spring writing contest, with no entry fee. The first prize is $50 and publication in a special print edition of the magazine. Submission guidelines at https://thefuriousgazelle.com/submit/spr...

Our next annual Halloween contest will open August 1, 2019. http://thefuriousgazelle.com/submit/hall...

We love work with strong story and style; humor is great, too. We'll consider any form of writing.

We also have a column called Things That Make Us Furious for satirical essays and rants, which we would love to receive submissions for.

We publish many first time or emerging poets.

Ekphrastic writing. All of the poetry and prose we publish in inspired by visual art. 

Read the journal! We love diverse styles of quality writing from all over the world, but if your work doesn't respond to works of visual art, we can't use it. 

If you are someone who loves visual art and loves writing about visual art, we'd love to hear from you.

Surprise us. We want nothing less than to expand and redefine exkphrasis by stretching the concept to its limits. Show us artworks we've never seen, or show us our familiar favourites from a whole new perspective.

We want writing that takes risks while still paying attention to craft. We are happy to see prose poems, stories that burst into poems, poems that burst into stories, etc. Mixing genres doesn’t scare us. Of course boring, self-involved, over-inflated pap turns us off. We publish poems, fiction, nonfiction, and plays.

We also host a yearly contest for poetry and/or prose. The prize is a $1,000 purse and publication. For contest guidelines, visit the website.

We call ourselves an “alternative” magazine; that is to say: our purpose is to promote work that is thought-provoking and unconventional. We want the controversial and the radical, the unhinged and the bizarre; we want the obsessive, the compulsive, the pervasive, the combative, and the seductive. We believe that every work of quality art has a home where it belongs, and for the “alternative,” the Matador Review is a home.

We publish poetry and essays from authors from around the world. The magazine is bilingual: all English texts will be translated into German (& vice versa). We publish texts which offer a new approach to the political and social landscape of the present day, texts that can dissolve existing boundaries or suggest new ones. They can make us question our beliefs, champion social justice and human rights, war and psychological violence, giving rise to provocative or soothing thoughts. We believe that all great literature is revolutionary and necessary.

Burningword Literary Journal is a quarterly international publication of poetry, short fiction, short nonfiction, and photography. Burningword has been published continuously since June 2000.  

Accepted works: Poetry in any form or style, flash fiction, flash nonfiction, along with photography and digital art. Issues are published Jan 5, April 5, July 5, and Oct 5. The cut-off date for submissions is the 10th day of the prior month for each quarter. (https://burningword.submittable.com). This journal uses blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed throughout the review process. In addition to the regular issues, end-of-year award nominations culminate in an annual "best-of" issue and nominations to both the Pushcart and Best of Net awards.
