We’re here to observe the strange color of the sky and how some of the trees fail to look majestic. There’s beauty in all the weird and wild and we’re ready to wade into the water surrounded by the strange wood and words that you’re willing to give. So give us your strange, your weird. Give me the writers that have yet to have found their place to call home.
We’re seeking work that’s energetic, imaginative, and original. Send us fiction with strong, idiosyncratic voices, creative nonfiction that honestly and eloquently strips all pretenses away, and poetry that uses language with power and precision.
To get a feeling for the work we publish, we encourage you to consult the issues available on our website. When you feel ready, please read our submission guidelines and then send us your best work, along with a third-person bio of 100 words or less.
Bridge Ink focuses on young adult creative writers, ages 13 to 18. All genres are accepted with a focus on poetry.
Our editors yearn to see something different, to learn from a piece of work, or to discover a new point of view. We are looking for young, honest voices daring enough to share those stories. How can a poem reveal an observation, emotion, or experience in a new or unique way? How can a story change a reader’s way of thinking? We want stories that open our minds to new possibilities.
Thurston Howl Publications is a small progressive publishing house in Lansing, Michigan. We have specialized in animal fiction and evocative literature.
The best way to appeal to any of our editors is to move them in a certain way. Your horror should terrify; your fantasy amaze; your erotica arouse; your political lit intrigue.
Not Your Mothers Breast Milk is an art blog dedicated to sharing stories about the human experience, connecting with one another, and giving artists an outlet to express their struggles and successes on this journey through life.
We're looking for something that makes us feel. It can make us feel joy, sadness, anger, silliness, etc, etc. Just make us feel something.

The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.
Easy Street provides writers a venue to showcase their work, to discuss the publishing industry, and to share viewpoints on diverse aspects of contemporary life and culture.
We’re looking for work that’s bizarre, authentic, subtle, outrageous, indefinable, raw, paradoxical. We’ve got our eyes on the horizon. Send us writing that lives just between the land and the sky.
Please note that we accept simultaneous submissions (and appreciate acknowledgement of such submissions), but do not accept reprints/previously published work. Please include a third-person bio in your cover letter. For examples of the work we tend to publish, please consult our current issue and online archives.
