Tampa Review is a literary magazine published dedicated to the blending of contemporary literature and visual arts. Each issue features contemporary writing and art from Florida and the world, emphasizing our connections to the Tampa Bay region.
“Strong Words for a Polite Nation” subTerrain Magazine was founded in 1988 to publish writers from the other side of the tracks. Each issue features progressive and sometimes controversial writing, alongside timely book reviews and contemporary visual art. Praised by both writers and readers for featuring work that might not find a home in more conservative periodicals, subTerrain seeks to expand the definition of literary and artistic culture by showcasing the best in progressive writing and ideas.

Rattle is a publication of the Rattle Foundation and its mission is to promote the practice of poetry.
There are no dos and don’ts. We have room to be eclectic, and seek to represent the entire stylistic landscape. Formal poems, epic poems, lyric poems, narrative poems, surreal poems, prose poems, visual poems—it’s all poetry. The most important thing a poem can be is memorable. Does it lodge itself in your gut? Does it sing in there?
Post Road seeks to publish up-and-coming writers along with more established names. It publishes a wide range of styles, from realist to experimental and everything in between.
Please send us your best work, after reading a bit of the work we publish.
We publish twice yearly and accept unsolicited poetry, fiction, nonfiction, short plays and monologues, and visual art submissions via our Online Submissions Manager. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but we ask to be informed immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Phoebe prides itself on supporting up-and-coming writers, whose style, form, voice, and subject matter demonstrate a vigorous appeal to the senses, intellect, and emotions of our readers. It chooses writers because they believe their work succeeds at its goals, whether its goals are to uphold or challenge literary tradition.
Phoebe seeks to publish quality writing. Please do not send formulaic writing, romance fiction, or greeting-card poetry. We do not consider previously published work. We insist on openness, which means we welcome both experimental and conventional prose and poetry, and we insist on being entertained, which means the work must capture and hold our attention, whether it be the potent language of a poem or the narrative mechanics of a short story.
Nimrod International Journal of Prose and Poetry’s mission is the discovery, development, and promotion of new writing. Its spring issue is thematic and dedicated to work by writers from one region of the world or a particular subject. It hosts two prizes: the Francine Ringold Awards for New Writers and the Nimrod Literary Awards. It promotes a living literature, believing that it is possible to search for, recognize, and reward contemporary writing of imagination, substance, and skill.
For fiction: vigorous, fresh writing; characters should be well-developed and believable. Dialogue should be realistic without being banal. For poetry: we seek poems that go beyond one word or image, honor the impulse to reveal a truth about, or persuasive version of, the inner and outer worlds.
