Spilled Milk Magazine is an online literary magazine for fiction and nonfiction, poetry, art and photography. We are eager to publish work that surprises us—that disregards boundaries and borders. Spilled Milk strives to be a home from unheard voices.

The work that we like pushes the boundaries of our expectations and takes us into a mental place that we have never imagined, yet feel as though it were written specifically for us. We’ve noticed in our brief time of running this magazine that many authors don’t push their work as far as they could. In that, they have the beginnings or inklings of something very adventurous and innovative but then shield away from the precipice. We encourage writers submitting to us to hang out in those weird rooms they’re drawn to and keep digging.

COG has multiple print issue subscription options, in addition to the free online issues.

Each issue of COG is a curiously constructed curation offered up by the students of Cogswell College. COG's writers thrill with skillfully wrought and cohesive narratives; insight and intensity; imagery and attitude - alternating nimbly between closely examined moments, characters or nuances and larger human themes. COG is not a venue for student work; rather, as of March 2018, COG had received submissions from writers working in 24 countries beyond the U.S.

In addition to publishing traditional text-based work, check out Cogitate - our audio broadcast - and the video series. We consider submissions in both categories, as well as cover art submissions.

Sooth: noun, archaic. Meaning truth. Truth: synonyms: fact, verity, certainty, certitude. This definition falls far from its mark when it shouldn't be aiming for a specific target altogether. We want poetry that examines your uncertain truths and truths that are unafraid to redefine themselves. We want words that live outside the fear of being the wrong ones.

Read some of the work from our previous issues to get a feel for what we're looking for.

Battery Pack only publishes stories up to seventy words in length. We prefer fast-paced, complete stories with a beginning, middle and end. We have a tendency to lean towards horror, but are happy to read in any genre.

Your title isn't part of your wordcount, so make the most of it to add to the story!

We are first and foremost a Christian publisher. However, we do not necessarily limit our submissions to non-fiction theologically-centered works. We are looking for anything that is generally wholesome in nature, whether it is fiction or non-fiction. Our general guidelines are as follows. Please look at our genre-specific guidelines for additional information. Shorter works will be published electronically, with print an option for longer works.

Do not submit works that are rife with profanity or obscenities, and similarly do not submit anything that is counter to a Christian outlook on life. Though eLectio publishing does not limit itself to just 'worship writing' or Bible devotionals, and does like to push the boundaries of what it means to be a good Christian, it is a Christian publisher. Please keep that in mind.
