We publish work that minimizes, blurs, or exaggerates distinctions between genres and offer a shared space for experimental creative fiction and nonfiction, lyrical fiction, experimental poetry, and multimedia pieces. Small Po[r]tions issues have a print component with a focus on book arts and an online component featuring selections from the print issue along with media work.

Look through what we've published previously (if you can't purchase the print issues, we have representative work from each issue published online) to see the sort of work in which we are interested. We publish experimental poetry, prose, cross/post-genre work, intermedia writing, and multimedia art such as videopoetry and soundwork. If you have any questions about submitting, feel free to contact us at editors@smallportionsjournal.com.

Literature of palpable quality: poems, stories, and essays so beguiling they invite us to touch their essence. The Bellingham Review hungers for a kind of writing that nudges the limits of form, or executes traditional forms exquisitely.

Please submit online, as we have gone paperless.

Diode Poetry Journal is looking for poetry that excites and energizes, that uses language that crackles and sparks. We’re looking for poetry from all points on the arc, from formal to experimental (no light verse or erotic poetry, please). Simultaneous submissions are welcomed, but please notify us if they're accepted elsewhere. Diode does not accept previously published work.

Hunger Mountain is both a print and online journal of the arts. We publish fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, visual art, young adult and children’s writing, and literary odds and ends. Our print issue comes out annually in the early spring, and our online content changes on a regular basis. Our mission is to cultivate engagement with and conversation about the arts by publishing high-quality, innovative literary and visual art by both established and emerging artists, and by offering opportunities for interactivity and discourse.

Please do send us your best work. Please don't send us detective stories. We’re currently accepting submissions in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and children’s literature. The theme for our 2017 print issue is "masked/unmasked" and we hope to receive submissions that interpret that theme in broad and unusual ways.

We are looking for writing that explores the boundaries of text and form, writing that is both progressive and unbound. We would like to see hybrid and transgenre pieces that remain critically engaging. We are interested in poetry, fiction, drama, nonfiction, sound, and critical work. We seek experimental writing that is fresh, intelligent, and playfully transgressive.

See our submission guidelines. Please only submit once per issue unless we specifically request additional work.

Linguistically and thoughtfully, it is the eldritch, the pithy, the electric, the gnostic, the visceral, the well-wrought, the purposefully experimental, and the expansive that are of interest to us. Irony is not of special interest. Popular currency is not of special interest. Cliché and expletives are usually anathema. We prefer the hard-fought and sincere to the ‘sexy’ and ‘edgy.’

We also sponsor the Prospero Prizes; OUR ALCHEMICAL VALENTINE; and VALUS' SIGIL for literature inspired by video games.

Challenge us with your vision.
