We want art that guts us with surgical precision. Make everything useful.
Inkwell Journal, a literary journal published through the MFA program at Manhattanville College, seeks submissions in English of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction/memoir, graphic narrative, visual art, and cross-form work. We are interested in both established and new voices, including voices that have been historically underrepresented. Thank you so much for considering us for the publication of your work.
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.
The theme for Issue 36 is "Resilience." We are also considering general submissions, except in Visual Art, which should be a portfolio of 3-5 pieces to the theme only. Please send only one submission.
We also yearn for more boundary-busting Creative Nonfiction, especially if you cross forms or employ graphic narrative.
We are a feminist press committed to publishing socially engaged literature with an emphasis on the voices of people of color, people with disabilities, and other historically silenced and culturally marginalized voices.

Ananke Press is a small, independent press in New York City with the focus on smart speculative fiction. We welcome odd and unexpected stories, masterfully crafted with the love of language in mind. Ananke Press is a member of IBPA; we offer a traditional contract.
Ananke Press is a selective press. Number of previous publications is unimportant; what matters is the quality of the work. We like intelligent and unconventional projects. If you are finding it difficult to fit your novel on a prescribed shelf, it might find a home with us.
akinoga press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.
We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.
AKINOGA PRESS IS NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS/PROJECTS FOR CONSIDERATION
The next open consideration period will likely be some time in fall of 2021, but check back here (or akinogapress.com/submissions) for more details as things solidify.

Please note that we are now a Hybrid Press. We cannot continue to publish without funding. Thank you for understanding.
After Happy Hour isn't limited to any particular genre. In fact, we're not big fans of the whole idea of genre. Whether you write sci-fi poetry, graphic memoirs, historical flash fiction, or straight up literary--if it has strong characters and tight language, we want to read it. We're based in Pittsburgh, PA and have a particular affinity for writers with a connection to the city. Don't take that as a limit to our demographic, however. We welcome submissions from anywhere in the world.
The editorial crew is a weird bunch. We count among us a Klingon-speaking demigirl, a poet who carves words into food, and the author of a cannibal comedy. We would love to publish more genre, genre-bending, and experimental work but get unfortunately little of publishable quality. Be that writer, and you’ll make our little oddball hearts happy.
No Tokens is a journal celebrating work that is felt in the spine. We are run entirely by women, queer, trans, and non-binary individuals, dedicated to featuring the words and artwork of all voices of the past, present, and future. We are here to keep stories alive. We are paying attention.
We want your fiction, poetry, art, criticism—you name it—that pushes against complacent taxonomies and finds itself well off the beaten path. We define ourselves as an “isthmus,” a space of crossings and connectivity, between histories, articulations, media—making of these frontiers a site of play and revitalization.
