The Sun is an independent, ad-free magazine that for more than forty years has used words and photographs to evoke the splendor and heartache of being human. Each monthly issue celebrates life, but not in a way that ignores its complexity. The personal essays, short stories, interviews, poetry, and photographs that appear in The Sun’s pages explore the challenges we face and the moments when we rise to meet them.
Focused on words and quality. We do not ascribe to nepotism.

Gazing Grain Press is an inclusive feminist chapbook series edited by alumni of George Mason University’s MFA program and sponsored by the Fall for the Book literary festival. We promote and publish feminist work by writers of all genders and sexualities. We publish chapbooks, miniatures, and our blog features book reviews, interviews, and a feminist writing resource database. We believe that inclusive feminism should make available a space for celebrating poetry that comes from a diversity of writerly identities.
We are interested in socially conscious work that explores ideas of identities as connected to gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity, culture, and ability. We adhere to no one “definition” of feminism–we encourage a broad and diverse range of approaches. Challenge us!

POST(blank) is a bilingual word-art publication, in which we curate a dialogue between the visual and literary arts. We look for any works that either attempt to, and can be used to, create a dialogue between these two media.
Take a careful look at our submission guidelines and attempt to follow the theme. However, DO NOT be afraid to freely interpret the theme in any way that makes sense to you. We are looking for all people willing to help us fully dissect every possibility available in each issue's theme.

Lines + Stars began as a means of establishing a new creative forum in Washington, D.C., a city that all-too-often coasts solely on its more mechanistic pursuits. While many of our contributors hail from the D.C. area, we've also expanded our writer-base to include national and international voices. L+S Press is our chapbook-publishing arm.
