This magazine is looking for the in-depth authenticity of what the artist can create by dishing out their ideas and feelings. Our team is looking for a diverse spectrum of essays, prose, short fiction, art, poetry and more! We want pieces that will knock us to our feet — in a good way.
Headmaster, the biannual art magazine for man-lovers, is published twice a year in an edition of 1,000. All work in Headmaster is assigned by the editors. While primarily a visual magazine, each issue of Headmaster features the work of 1-3 fiction and non-fiction writers. Headmaster publishes roughly five text-based pieces per year. Work published in the first six issues of Headmaster include erotica, film criticism, travel writing, literary fiction and memoir. The editors of Headmaster are open to other forms of writing as well, although poetry isn't really our thing. Sorry, poets.
Please remember that all work in Headmaster is original and that unsolicited work will be considered a writing sample, not an actual submission. (With that in mind, sending previously published work is fine and will not be reproduced in any way by Headmaster.)
Headmaster will acknowledge receipt of submissions, and respond to queries as soon as we can. We were not very good at this but we are trying to be better.
We strongly advise writers to look at a physical copy of the magazine before submitting.
Eoagh is dedicated to the idea of reading as a process, the productive chaos of investigative poetic work. We seek to foreground the writing of experimental women, trans, feminist, transfeminist, POC, anti-racist, and LGBT/queer authors. We seek work that explores the acts of attention not just in writing but also in being written. Inspired by the assertion that “reading is a gymnast’s act,” we see readings as embodied, interdisciplinary responses that engage with one’s environment.
There will be one submission period for the journal announced each year. There will also be one reading period for book manuscript submissions announced each year.
To submit work to EOAGH, send: essays, articles, or reviews. Any length is acceptable. We do not currently accept unsolicited poetry submissions. To submit articles, criticism, or reviews, send texts of any length.
The A3 Review is a literary magazine that behaves like a map, made by the folks who make Writing Maps. Prose and poetry pieces are written with a 150-word limit in response to a themed monthly writing contest. Twelve winners are published in the biannual review, and three overall winners receive cash prizes. Total cash prizes is £475 (approx. $620).
We are looking for original and creative responses to our monthly themed contests. Experimental work is encouraged. We accept all forms and genres of writing and artwork. Poems, flash fiction, a graphic story or a snippet of memoir... as long as it's under 151 words and fits into an A6 panel.
MUSH/MUM is an online journal of textual assets. There is no type of literary work MUSH/MUM is not willing to accept. MUSH/MUM welcomes and encourages the submission of experimental texts and literary transgression. If it involves an indifference to or anatomization of language, MUSH/MUM will accept it.
We aim to publish meaningful, thoughtful, and creative content.
E-mail Genre Editors directly with submissions. Include a cover letter, brief bio, photo, and attach submission as Word or RTF document. Multimedia submissions should be queried first.
bedfellows is a thematic, philadelphia-based literary magazine that seeks to catalog contemporary discussions of desire & intimacy, with a particular focus on underrepresented & marginalized voices. we publish work that we feel subverts (or confronts) the stigmas that are often attached to sex-focused writing.
while bedfellows publishes exclusively sex, intimacy, & desire-themed work, please note that we are not interested in traditional erotica writing.
