Loud Coffee Press is a quarterly unpretentious and unapologetic literary journal that focuses on three things we love: flash fiction, coffee, and music. We look for writing that hovers in that perfect brew spot of 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit, where the entire piece rocks us to our core. Give us something that keeps us up at night and leaves our ears ringing the next day.

We have unique submission guidelines so we encourage submitters to read them. If you catch us in a good mood, we might be willing to overlook some guideline mistakes for the sake of a fantastic piece. However, our most significant turn-offs come in the form of bland, generic stories, pieces that don’t contain a story arc, or topics that are derivative of current trends. We love music-focused submissions, but we often have to deny a great piece because it could potentially violate copyright law with quoted song lyrics.

The Zodiac Review was launched in 2011 to provide a quality venue for readers and new, emerging and established writers of "literary/genre" fiction—the merger of literary fiction and (nearly) any genre that joins it. Here new and emerging writers will find a writing studio of sorts as well as a receptive venue for publication. Editors provide free, personal feedback for all submissions. We also facilitate reader/writer communications, and expect to submit Pushcart nominations.

Please see our website (thezodiacreview.com)for the latest information on our submission periods. When we are open for submissions, please follow our guidelines! (Remarkably few writers do!) And of course read some of our published stories and prose poems.

"I decided some years ago that I wanted to create a space for people taking on the struggle, a venue to give those writers and artists a truly fair shot at publication and the chance to be seen, read, and recognized—no connections, no solicitations, and only blind reading. Here, the quality of work is all that matters, not who you know or where you come from or what you've already accomplished. A fair chance and an open hand for everyone—the underdogs, the in-betweeners, and the already established." —Jonathan Starke, Editor

A Velvet Giant is a collective space for work that exists outside the boundaries of genre. We recognize that it can feel impossible to talk about writing without categorizing it. When we say genreless, we don’t mean apolitical. Writing that resists binary categories such as fiction/nonfiction or poetry/prose is inherently queer and inherently political. We want writing that exists in the world, that resists tradition and expectations to build towards new ways of creating, feeling, and being.

We love ambiguity: flash pieces, found pieces, cross-genre experiments, the "poem" that thinks it might be a story, the "story" that thinks it might be a poem. Retellings and reimaginings. Works that chips away at institutional structures. Work that breaks everything down so that it can build.

Radix Media publishes new ideas and fresh perspectives, prioritizing the voices of typically marginalized communities to get to the root of the human experience. We are looking for work that is experimental, a bit weird perhaps, timely and audacious in its questioning. 

As a print shop, we pride ourselves on the production of superior quality, purposefully designed books. All accepted authors get to work with in-house designers to conceptualise their covers and layout.

Alex Difrancesco, Ashley Shelby, John Dermot Woods, Ganzeer, Elliott Colla
