What a Literary Magazine is Supposed to be About: The Writers, Artists and Above All, YOUR Voice!We strongly, passionately believe that instead of being taught what to think, we should be teaching each other how to think, and also be taught how to think. Only then will we discover the capabilities of our own individual cognitive abilities. It’s another step toward shattering the mold. WRITE WHAT YOU WRITE, not what you think we want you to write.

What we WON’T TOLERATE or ACCEPT:-Racism -Misogyny -Vulgarity for vulgarity’s sake (i.e., think: an endless, nonsensical urban dictionary. No, no and no.) -Deeply disturbing ideals and/or fantasies *Important thing to note here: This is not to say in any way, shape or form that we won’t accept something dark, edgy, thought-provoking or writing containing violence or profanities–there’s a line, however. You’ll know when you’ve crossed it. As for concepts or stories about the existence of racism and misogyny, that’s different. I mean that I won’t accept or tolerate literature perpetuating or stating overt racist ideals or sexism.

Founded in 2010, Sibling Rivalry Press is an independent publishing house based just outside of Little Rock, Arkansas, in the small town of Alexander. Our mission is to develop, promote, and market underground artistic talent—those who don’t quite fit into the mainstream. SRP is proud to be the home of Assaracus, the world’s only print journal of gay male poetry and one of Library Journal's Best New Magazines. While we champion our LGBTIQ authors and artists, we are an inclusive publishing house and welcome all authors, artists, and readers regardless of sexual orientation or identity.

Visit our website, interact with our authors, read our books and eBooks - and if you feel that you'd be a good fit, let us know.

NMP is a publisher of chapbooks and broadsides. We have a pretty wide aesthetic range, and we acquire manuscripts primarily through our yearly chapbook contest ($1,000 prize, deadline in spring). See the website for more information.

The best way to get a sense of what we publish is to read a couple of our chapbooks.

We’re interested in writers who read vigorously and are invested in the continued advancement and development of both "print" and digital writing. We’re looking for artists who believe that it’s important to interact with a community of ideas and artists, who believe no good art happens in isolation.

Please read the journal and/or previously published books.

New Rivers Press is interested in literary work of every character, but especially in diverse work that's aesthetically challenging and has a social conscience. Our Many Voices Project competition (Sept. 15 - Nov. 1) seeks the best new literary prose and poetry from new and emerging writers. Our Electronic Book Series (July 1 – Sept. 1) seeks manuscripts in popular fiction genres. During open submissions (May), we are interested in reading the best work from writers in all stages of their careers. Founded in New York in 1968, the not-for-profit Press has now published over 330 books.

Make sure to send mss. to the appropriate competition (MVP, Electronic Book Series, American Fiction) and to check deadlines and guidelines. We read general submissions in May and June.

Wave Books is an independent poetry press based in Seattle, Washington, dedicated to publishing the best in contemporary poetry, poetry in translation, and writing by poets. The press was founded in 2005, merging with established publisher Verse Press. By publishing strong innovative work in finely crafted trade editions and hand-made ephemera, we hope to continue to challenge the values and practices of readers and add to the collective sense of what’s possible in contemporary poetry.

Wave Books is not currently accepting any unsolicited manuscripts. We do occasionally have open reading periods, so please check our submissions page for updates. Please note that we do publish fiction, essays, and criticism but only by poets or related to poetry. Please do not email us outside of our open reading period.
