Waxwing is a literary journal promoting the tremendous cultural diversity of contemporary American literature, alongside international voices in translation. We believe that American voices are, at their cores, both multicultural and multinational, and so the editors’ mission is to include American writers from all cultural identities — in terms of race, ethnicity, indigenous tribe, gender, class, sexuality, age, education, ability, language, religion, and region — alongside international voices, published bilingually. 

Waxwing publishes poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, reviews, art, and music, as well as international literature in translation. Waxwing currently accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translations; all other content is solicited.

Due to the high number of submissions and Submittable’s fees for magazines, Waxwing caps submissions at 300/month—submitting at the beginning of the month improves your chances of catching us before we hit the limit. If you are unable to submit due to closure, please come back and submit the next month.

We want to share the stories you’ve been told not to tell.

We publish poetry, non-fiction, and hybrid work by people who identify as or alongside female/trans/non-binary, and who write about existing in a world that tells you your stories are not worthy of art. We believe that your stories are worthy, and we believe in the importance of telling them.

We’re looking for work that is raw and real and good. Tell us the stories you worry aren’t cool enough to be literature. The ones someone in workshop called “too confessional.” The ones that show us what it means to live in your body and in this world. We want to weep with you and cheer for you and rage with you. We know that deeply personal work can be and is art of the highest form, and we’re excited that you want to share yours with us.

We are a non-institutional aggregator of mediocre literature. We aren't as off the wall as we are on the floor. While our editors continue their efforts to undermine each other, we're on a hunt for beavers eager to usurp the traps and give the literary world a bathetic run for its money. 

If you run away, let the salt pour.

Be crass if you think we can't handle your genius.

If you send a fish sandwich with your hard copy submission, you will be moved to the top of the pile. However, doing so does not guarantee publication.

Experimental/avant poetry and art. 

AOM indulges the self-indulgent, so go for it. Mags often say they want “experimental,” but don’t actually mean it. AOM wants your insane stuff, emphatically so!–the stuff that won’t be published in “respectable” academic lit/poetry mags.

Foundlings Magazine presents a stimulating hash of poetry and images. While we accept all types, styles, and subgenres of poetry, each magazine contains and places some emphasis on "found" poetry and images.

We seek to publish - in paper and ink - the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved." 

We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”
