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.

Territory is a literary project about territories and the maps that will always fail to capture them. We want to understand the paradoxes created by these maps by understanding what inspires them. We invite writers, musicians, and other artists to respond to maps and the fallacies they engender, in turn creating secondary maps. We then present these two maps side-by-side as a means of getting at, but still failing to capture, the underlying territory.

Please pair your submission with a map, either one we provide on our website or one you would like to use. If you provide the map, make sure it's a high-res image and available for fair use. In the case that your submission is not paired with a map but is sufficiently "map-like" in some way, we look for your suggestions of what maps to use and why to use them.

Broad Street is an interdisciplinary non-profit magazine featuring the very best that creative non-fiction has to offer in an ever-expanding set of subgenres. We are an intersection where truth-telling prose, poetry, artwork, and interviews with storytellers in various media (e.g., sculpture, costume design, cgi, memoir), can converge to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not necessarily through an academic lens. Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professorial colleagues.

Dare to push yourself in new ways. We want beautifully crafted, risky, previously unpublished non-fiction narratives: reflective essays, reportage, experimental truth-telling, poetry, prose poetry, photo essays, original artwork, and interviews (query first). Memoirs should be about more than "me"--offer insight into cultural phenomena, etc. We CRAVE reportage and researched essays, but no academic bluster, please! Think NPR. Think New Yorker. Think Broad Street. And please read a copy to be sure you write what we publish.
Each issue has a theme broadly applied; we appreciate fresh approaches. Follow directions on our online submissions page.
We give each piece painstaking editorial attention that rivals that of any book publisher.

Body Parts Magazine is an online literary magazine of horror, erotica, speculative fiction and dark fantasy. Each themed issue honors Eros and Thanatos, the Greek gods of libido and mortido—life and death. We celebrate the vast and various expressions of dreams and darkness, our primitive desires and urges, and seek to encounter—and embrace—those shadowy monsters who dwell in the dimly lit corners of human experience. Our boundaries are few and far between. We also accept art, photography, short essays and interviews about topics and people relevant to our themes.

Body Parts accepts well-written, thoughtfully structured dark and Gothic fiction (including fairy tales and mythology), horrotica (where elements of each genre occur naturally), exceptional genre fiction (NO fan fiction) and all combinations of the above. Response times can be lengthy so simultaneous submissions are welcome. Please email us to withdraw your work from consideration if it's placed in another publication. We do not accept book/game/music reviews. Read our issues and guidelines before submitting.
