Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 55,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

We want work that is urgent and beautiful, that was written with lightning and a sense that tomorrow may never come. We want work that pushes edges and tells us something new. We love work that is personal and political—political in the largest sense, as in awareness of who has the power and how it is they came to have it. We publish interviews and book reviews and review-essays.

We are interested in creating conversational spaces, and pieces that provoke thought-change. We want to hear from new voices and emerging voices as well as our literary mentors, established writers, and ancestors.

Please take a look at the website, read the submissions guidelines, what we've previously published, and deeply consider whether your work engages with our mission. We want manuscripts that work on a cellular level. We are a hands-on, collaborative press, from editing to layout and design, to getting your work seen.

We seek weird, innovative, and optimistic science fiction from new and published authors. Quality, inventive, and engaging prose, plus fun new ideas, will catch our eyes every time. 

Make sure you're saying something new, rather than riding a trend. We will shy away from dystopian writing that lacks a new approach... And please, no steampunk.

Seeking original fiction, poetry, essays, and scripts/screenplays that include a skeleton, or bones (in all connotations), in some way. (It can be as direct as a skeleton protagonist and as oblique as a passing mention of bones.)

Have fun with the theme. We've had great spooky, gothic work, as well as loving nature poetry, and humorous work.

Virga is rain that takes some cloud down with it–precipitation with parachute.

Virga is also a poetry journal. Here, we hope to publish poems that take some of the sky down to the page.

Our tastes are eclectic, but we would like to see poems that demonstrate elegance, empathy, and experimentation. This is to say, we want content that is well-crafted, that pays reverent attention to detail; content that keeps humanity at its center; content that innovates.

To get a sense of what we like to publish, read a recent issue of Virga.

Hematopoiesis is the body's method of creating new blood cells. As a digital publication, our intention is to offer refuge to this process while disrupting dominant conversations on (dis)embodiment.

We come to you with questions: What is written, and being written, in the body and how do we express our physiology? How do we claim bodies through language, in a world that diminishes and erases so many bodies? How, like the continuous process of making new blood, do we create meaning in a world of loss & violence? What exists in the borderlands of body? 

We are now reading for ISSUE 3: SCARIFICATION. An excerpt from the call reads:

Skin-haunt.

A place where the wound has closed. A place where the wound won’t bleed even if you need it to.

Rip and scatter, roughed up by this rearrangement of cells. Languages of injury and repair. What happened here.

Deadline December 15th!
