Raspa Magazine is a response to the paucity of queer Latino literature readily available to readers. It is a biannual queer literary magazine that focuses on the Latino perspective. Raspa intends to showcase the experience of queer Latino artists, thereby providing a better understanding for ourselves as peers and for those outside of our community.
“Radius” is an online literary journal in blog format dedicated to poetry: How poetry works, how one poem or body of poems connects to another, how poetry exists in the world. We’re big believers that poetry doesn’t exist in a vacuum, and that it has a role to play in life, politics and culture.
We're open to submissions of poetry, fictions and literary criticism year-round, but please read the guidelines carefully, as we're looking for VERY specific things, including, for poetry, political poetry, elegies for poets and invented forms; and for fiction, new twists on epic/action heroes and new takes on classic pulp genres.
Weird, in the etymological meaning of the word: that which comes. Literary, speculative, experimental, or absurdly unclassifiable, just make it bold and beautifully written.
Please read the current issue or a volume from our archives to get an idea of what we publish.
Big Other welcomes submissions in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, lyric essay, art, video, drama, cross-genre, reviews, interviews, book excerpts, and craft essays. We are especially interested in innovative art, literary and otherwise. Big Other seeks to publish diverse voices, including works by women, people of color, and people who are transgender, disabled, indigenous, international, and/or other artists and writers underrepresented in literary magazines.
We’re here to observe the strange color of the sky and how some of the trees fail to look majestic. There’s beauty in all the weird and wild and we’re ready to wade into the water surrounded by the strange wood and words that you’re willing to give. So give us your strange, your weird. Give me the writers that have yet to have found their place to call home.
Published twice a year, Redivider welcomes fiction, nonfiction, graphic art, and poetry submissions from new, emerging, and established artists and writers. We strive to showcase the very best previously unpublished art and literature we can find; to actively engage the broader literary community, and to support and nurture that community in our pages and beyond; to welcome and serve historically underrepresented voices, including those marginalized due to class, gender, race, and sexuality; and, above all, to give good art and literature a good home.
Redivider seeks pieces that captivate readers while complicating their worldviews; that recognize craft and genre conventions while working to disrupt them; that feature compelling characters, stories, and ideas simultaneous to revealing their flaws, fissures and seams. And while we appreciate work that challenges, we also love to be entertained. Humorous, colorful, and satirical pieces appeal to us too. We celebrate all things real and surreal, time-tested and transgressive, swaggerific and self-conscious. In our pages you’ll find the minimalist, the maximalist, and always—always—the in-betweenist. We also host two annual contests: the Beacon Street Prize each spring, and the Blurred Genre Contest in the fall.
John Updike once said, "Creativity is merely a plus name for regular activity. Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right, or better." At Driftwood Press, we are actively searching for artists who care about doing it right, or better. We are excited to receive your submissions and will diligently work to bring you the best in short fiction, poetry, graphic narrative, photography, art, and interviews.
Read our issues! We also have an interview up at the Review Review that gives a look inside our magazine's process.
The Lascaux Review provides a showcase for emerging and established writers and artists. Annual contests are conducted in flash fiction, short fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction.
Please send your work via Submittable, according to the guidelines. We cannot process submissions via mail or email.
Easy Street provides writers a venue to showcase their work, to discuss the publishing industry, and to share viewpoints on diverse aspects of contemporary life and culture.
COAST|noCOAST is an annual print journal and chapbook press of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, poetics, and art with "offices" in Cincinnati, Ohio and Seattle, Washington. While our literary interests are diverse in form and content, we are looking for the bridges between the works we love. We publish COAST|noCOAST as an interrogation of our aesthetics as well as an exploration of our regions' poetry and art. A portion of each issue is dedicated to the writers and artists of Southwest Ohio and the Puget Sound.
We seek work that is self-concious (potentially experimental) in form and context (literary, historical, or otherwise).
