Inkwell Journal, a yearly anthology published through the MFA program at Manhattanville College, seeks submissions in English of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction/memoir, graphic novel/memoir excerpts, visual art, and genre-blurring work, as well as translations. We are interested in both established and new voices, including voices that have been historically under-represented. 

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.

We at Sakura Review consider the page as a site of singularity and belonging, that threshold for history-weaving. We prize deft and thoughtful craft, writing that communicates with a sure sense of its own form. We seek pieces with charisma that endear and entertain us — voices that call on us to stay and listen. We’re committed to publishing writing from diverse voices and experiences, including work in translation. Writing that is brave, however quietly or radically.

We are looking for well written, polished work. We accept all genres, so long as they address more than the genre itself. We are of the belief that there is no 'right' way to write a story. Be creative. Rethink what it means to tell a story. Shape is just as important as words. Do not want: Pornography, gratuitous violence, vampires, werewolves, Fan Fiction, political agendas, slice-of-life/autobiography, children's stories, etc.

Proofread your work. Have others read your work. Then read it again.

The issues are cohesive; the whole of the magazine is comprehensive.

Submit anything, from new to almost-forgotten, previously published if noted in an email, or rejected for whatever reason from other venues. I do work with talented writers if a theme or plot or character can be drawn out and refined for publication in Wood Coin. The magazine is uncensored as of January 2018, yet extreme literary or artistic stunts need to coincide with US obscenity laws.

We like experiments and even failures. We relish in the avant-garde. We want to encourage risks and redefine narrative. We are not afraid to publish the cruel, harsh, and ugly. We love to laugh and bask in the unexpected joy of reading a well-developed, complex piece of literature. That said, don't try to Wow us. Show us your awesomeness.

Established by combat veterans and maintained by a diverse board of veterans, military spouses, and writers compelled by themes of social justice and human resilience, the Wrath-Bearing Tree publishes essays, reviews, fiction, and poetry on military, economic, and social violence written by those who have experienced military, economic, and social violence or their consequences. 

We seek to expand the conversation around violence, conflict, and war. We especially like work that is thoughtful and balanced when it comes to questions of diversity.

Autumn House is a nonprofit, independent press which has the mission of publishing poetry and other fine literature. We are committed not just to publishing the prominent writers of our age, but also to publishing first books and lesser-known authors who will become the important voices of their generation. In the belief that a book is not only a readable text but also an object of art, the press is dedicated to producing beautifully designed books on acid-free paper, as well as electronic texts of comparable quality.

We ask that all submissions come through our annual contests or our open call period. We also suggest that anyone interested in submitting read an AHP title. 

Representative Authors: 

Ada Limon, Sarah Gerkensmeyer, Chana Bloch, Ed Ochester, Clifford Thompson, Jane Satterfield, Ellery Akers, Patricia Jabbeh Wesley, Brian Swann, Gerald Stern, Sharma Shields, Andrea Hollander, Philip Terman, Danusha Lameris, Steven Schwartz, Sue Ellen Thompson, Jill Kandel...

  • Novel- and novella-length fiction. We look for work that has something of the "rare and strange" about it: the gothic or grotesque, the surreal or magical.
  • Short (20–40K words) hybrid works: fictional or quasi-fictional encyclopedias, collections, catalogs, bestiaries, dictionaries.

We accept submissions through Submittable. Do not email us your submission; it will not be considered. Please NO short story collections, poetry, romance, YA, or inspirational.
