Syndicated celebrates the art of television through people’s unique perspectives, insights, and experiences. We’re more analysis than review, more individual than far-reaching, and more you than the hunk of metal you watch on. If a show, episode, scene, character, or quote had an effect on your life in any way, we want to hear about it. Maybe a show helped you understand mental illness, or maybe something about television just made you feel less alone. So stop channel-flipping for a second; broadcast your story.

Feel free to pitch an idea or send in a finished piece. We also have several ongoing columns you may submit to; visit our submissions page for more details and inspiration.

At Devil's Party Press we publish exclusively work by poets, fiction writers, and memoirists who are over the age of 40.

We truly value the older writer.

We strive to bring to the public excellent authors who can not find a voice through traditional publishing.

We are interested in work that grabs us by the heart, or the guts.

We want to promote and showcase writers in their second act, who are old enough to know better, and old enough to not give a rat's ass about knowing better.

We value women, diversity, LGBTQ, and damn good writing.

No torture porn, regular porn, bigoted/racist, or religious texts. 

Reading fee $10 for anthologies only. Those published receive free copy, value $14.99. Top 3 submissions get prize.

The very small reading fee helps us keep publishing. No charge for proofreading, editing, graphics, etc.

1 entry = story/memoir of 1,000 – 8,000 words or 1- 3 poems of no more than 1,000 words total. Submit 2 entries & 3rd is free.

No fees ever for full-length books. Currently seeking books for publication in 2021 and beyond.

Authors 40years + only.

Representative Authors: 

David Dutton, David Yurkovich, Tom Barlow, Monte Anderson, Heidi Hewett, Phyllis Humby, Tara Elliot, Roberto Sabas, Kari Ebert, Carrie Sz Keane, Sharon Berg

The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery and collected conversation. The first priority of the Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel.

We’re big readers, so we admire pieces that make the old new. We also dig aesthetic competence and a knowledge of genre and literary tradition. That said, we admire experimentation and blurred genres as well, so long as the writer brings the heat.

Our only criteria for poetry or micro prose: your writing is alive on the page, has urgency and has something at stake.
