I am craving the community of those who are looking to critique, workshop, encourage, discuss and learn from one another.

Ohm Journal is dedicated to publishing works of progressive literature, criticism, poetry, and art. The editors don’t make distinctions between these because they believe in the democratization of the written word. 

We do not wish to publish works that merely interpret the world around us, rather works that seek to change it for the better.  We desire to break down the modern information bubbles that alienate us from one another. We seek passionate expressions of lived experience and sincere attempts to grapple with substantive issues. If you, like us, yearn to create a just and equitable society—rejecting the current trajectory toward fascism and neoliberalism, or simply wish to engage with our articles, then send your stuff to submissions@ohmjournal.com and feel free to reach out to us on social media!

Spoonie Magazine publishes art, articles, audio, poetry, prose, video, and hybrid works by disabled, chronically ill, and/or neurodiverse individuals (or their loved ones) on related subject matters weekly in their online magazine. All work is considered regardless of the perspective with which it approaches these topics. Their goal is to promote the voices of, and provide a space for, disabled artists and authors in publishing and the arts.

We champion representation and honesty in the creative discussion of disability. Our mission is to share authentic experiences— as happy, sad, inspirational, or frustrating as they may be. These individuals face unique challenges, so we have created an equally unique place specifically for them.

Note that submissions sent from Feb—April and Aug—Oct are simultaneously considered for publication in our print literary journal, Spoonie Journal.

Kaylajane

My name is Kayla-Jane (KJ) and I'm a poet and essayist looking to connect with other writers who are either beginning or experienced in the realm of getting published for their work.

In my essays, I write about the environment, nature, climate change, and social justice. I like to say "I bring awareness to societal issues while sharing my life experience."

I'm also a poetry therapist in training - if anyone is interested in that area of poetry, I would love to connect.

Mark Cantor

A retired engineer just coming to grips with the concept of enjoying writing after half a century of hating it with a passion. Primary school teachers have a hell of a lot to answer for. My writing experience outside academic and professional environments is limited to a few years and involvement in a local writing group.

People tell me I can write, but I am struggling to comprehend an ability that has never before been applied to me. Though sometimes I find myself in a timeless place where rearranging and juggling words, sentences and paragraphs to provide the reader a very specific understanding. I think I enjoy the process, but can a wombat truly enjoy flying?

I think I know an aweful lot and will gladly tell people so, but few have the desire or will to be enlightened. I can visualise a book that tells the world what I think they should know about humanity and how humanity thinks or tries and fails. A book never before needed as much as it is today. Perhaps a pipe dream but I keeps me off the streets.

Christian Guild

Hiya! I was a copywriter on/off with textbroker and have had my poetry published in an inaugural issue of a Christian literary journal, a local arts festival journal, and a now defunct experimental/general online literary magazine. I'm looking for a group of people who are able to critique each other with no qualms, read poetry to expand our understandings of the world, and discuss what poetry actually is.

Note, I view poetry as an act of religious ritual - a sacramental approach to the world, our lived experiences, and people all around. Not strictly Christian (highly platonic), but also not New Age-y. So, most of my poems have a hint of religiousity, if not outright proclamation. I honestly don't care if one is religious or not. Good poetry is good poetry.
