Rune Bear is a digital literary magazine devoted to the Strange, Surreal, Supernatural, and Speculative. This includes all horror, science-fiction, slipstream, all-the-punks, fantasy, myth, and strange thoughts, as long as the content is under 300-words and forms some kind of narrative. 

We are looking for stories in concentrate, although with a little pulp, too. All pieces, whether they are prose or poetry, should be under three hundred words. We find this allows writers to explore clever ideas without having to expand them beyond their natural limits, to diminish potency by stretching out a strange writ or dream-put-to-paper. In three hundreds, we want a glimpse of another world, perhaps some freak or fate or finish that stays in our thoughts all day and keeps us up all at night.

Pen + Brush in Print publishes poetry and literary fiction by women and nonbinary writers. We are looking for strong and original voices especially from emerging or debut authors, with an eye for the experimental and unconventional. A 124-year old non-profit, P+B provides a platform to showcase the work of artists and writers to a broader audience with the ultimate goal of effecting real change within the marketplace. We believe that art and literature created by women deserves to be recognized and valued on its merit—not judged by the gender of the maker.

Please use our online submission system rather than emailing the editor directly.

We love literature. We love reading it, we love writing it, and we love talking about it. We also love delving into the "deep shelf" material of favorite authors and discovering exciting new voices. At the Midnight Oil, we seek to provide a venue where new and emerging writers can be published alongside established masters of their craft, where old favorites and new favorites collide, and you’ll find writing that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, even when you know that you really should be getting to bed.

We do not provide book reviews, pull quotes, or endorsements of any kind. We do not subscribe to any mailing lists. We do not accept submissions via e-mail. Any e-mails that fall into these categories will be deleted unread, if you would like to submit, please follow the procedures outlined on our Submit page.

What Are Birds? is a literary journal looking for work that enthralls us. We are especially excited about hybrid work that crosses genre boundaries or exists outside of genre altogether. We understand the dire need for representation and diversity and strive to be changing the trends in publishing. We strongly encourage queer, trans, nonbinary, POC, femme, neurodivergent, disabled, (and any other writers who lack representation) to submit to our journal.
