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 80,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

Kritiksha Sharma

I have been a digital non-fiction writer for as long as I can remember now, and I have recently made the switch into fiction. As a relatively young fiction writer with borderline unrealistic aspirations which my ambition would never allow me to consider unrealistic (crazy delusional thing, ambition), I'm looking to meet other writers in different milestones of their writer journeys and learn as much as I can from their stories and the paths they've treaded on. Apart from being new to the world of fiction I'm also new to this crazy concrete jungle of a city and I would love to socialise with writers from all walks of life in any way, shape or form this pandemic allows us to.

I am an older woman (77) who has been writing and publishing fiction for 40 years. Most of my publications have been erotica, but I also have published and written li.terary short stories My three novels remain unpublished. I' ve recently become interested in writing memoir. I had a memoir published in EclecticaMagazine (www.eclecticamagazine.org), July/August 2020. I am currently rewriting a novel and working on some short memoir pieces, as well as short fiction. I was in an online writing group for 20 years, but the other members have decided to move on to other things. I still find feedback on my writing to be helpful, so would like to form or find another group of accomplished writers. This could be in person, online, or via zoom.

We’re a collection of independent writers and visual artists looking to explore the (seemingly empty) space between ourselves and the other, whether it be another person, the natural world or maybe even another plane of existence.

Send high-quality work that you don't mind someone sitting on for awhile. No SPAM. No Simo's.

One of my current projects is called the "Eulogy Project" whereby I encourage friends to write about friends and loved ones NOW rather than waiting until they  pass away.   After all, who needs to hear nice things when you're already six feet under?

I'm a life-long writer and a life-long student. I am interested in working with other writers to improve my craft, support their craft/s, cross the borders, swim for the farthest shore.

Work Synopsis: I've published poems in several anthologies, zines and online sites, and have written chapbooks, The Character Poems (Chez Ches, no longer available) and "Bliss, Not Weight," the latter of which is published in Ides, an anthology of 15 chapbooks published by Silver Birch Press. I've also written seven plays, two of which have been produced either in Los Angeles or New York as full stage productions or in festival readings (You Told Me That the Carousel Was Crystal, Inside, ...and Then the Heavens Closed, Noah's Arc). I've also written, produced and performed four solo theatre works. I'm currently finalizing my newest play and a full-length poetry collection.

Disquiet Arts is a POC-led magazine, focusing on gothic literature and erotica. We seek poetry, flash fiction, photography, and art from authors and artists in all stages of their careers, especially those from the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ community. 

We think of ourselves as a home for those odd and beautiful poems and stories that just don't quite fit anywhere else. We love a good horror story, and many a sad love poems have found a home within our pages.
