Hi! I'm the digital director at Poets & Writers. I enjoy writing poems, personal essays, and short stories. My essays have been published in Black Renaissance Noire, Midwestern Gothic, and Vol. 1 Brooklyn, and forthcoming in PANK. My work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and my first short story was selected as an honorable mention for Glimmer Train's annual Family Matters contest. I'm currently at work on an essay collection. Always happy to meet new writer friends to discuss writing projects and goals.
Flare is an international literary journal founded by a dedicated group of young writers, photographers, and artists to explore the complexity of the human experience. Our mission is to encourage artists and writers of all backgrounds to express themselves, and we strongly believe that sharing art lifts and connects, regardless of age or location. We hope that our journal is able to empower through that mission.
We applaud work that is loud, expressive, and sincere. We look for honest storytelling that explores the diversity of the human experience. Please keep in mind that our magazine caters to a wide range of ages, and adhere to all submission guidelines.
We're flexible and have broad taste. Though most of our books in print are poetry chapbooks, we remain open to publishing anything the editor loves.
Currently closed to unsolicited manuscripts.
BOMBFIRE is an online literary magazine featuring visual art, poetry, and flash fiction. Our goal is to provide a platform for artists and writers to show off their work. Posts are updated biweekly every Saturday.
We are seeking weird, surreal, funny, spooky, beautiful, and dreamy. Blends of more than one of these are welcome here. Anyone is welcome to submit, from the new to the experienced.
Please read our submission guidelines.
The Gravity of the Thing is an independent literary magazine dedicated to the publication of innovative and defamiliarized writing. We publish work that is aware of its literary form, writing that defamiliarizes in craft or content for an enhanced rendering of reality.
Please visit thegravityofthething.com/about before submitting, as your writing should reflect our desired criteria. For more information about defamiliarized writing and our publishing practices, please visit our Baring the Device column at thegravityofthething.com/catalog/baring-the-device.
Into the Void is an award-winning print and online literary magazine dedicated to providing a platform for world-class fiction, flash, creative nonfiction, poetry, and visual art from people of all kinds all over the world. Into the Void strives to be a home where diversity is valued and art is treasured. We accept work of all styles and publish that which we feel is honest, heartfelt, and screaming to be seen. We are committed to giving writers and artists of all experience levels an opportunity.
SORTES publishes whatever makes us shiver, plotz, turn on, and/or freak out. We've published what might be called magical realism, dirty surrealism, fantastical biography, experimental poetry, tender balladeering, elusive allusive elliptical poetry, and sweet old grainy photography.
SORTES considers unsolicited submissions of poetry, prose, illustration, music, videos, and anything else you think may fit our format and feel—and very often material that doesn't. Feel free to poke at us: we’d love to find a way to publish dance, sculpture, puzzles, and other unliterary modalities.

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 #5, we are capping submissions so get your work in early! Also, we will include a themed dossier, Alone and Together. Beginning last March, we have learned to live as never before in our lives. We feel isolated emotionally and socially; maybe we already felt that way before the pandemic. At the same time, we are waking up to so many things, though our awakening is long overdue: the corrupt justice system, the need for police reform, and for reform across our government. Respond to the theme in any way that makes sense to you, but identify the genre of your submission and follow the guidelines for that genre though you submit your work in this category.
