Book XI is an online literary journal dedicated to publishing philosophically informed poetry and prose.
Named after the “American haiku” co-invented by Jack Collom and Robert Kelly, and inspired by the sense of “poetry as correspondence”—between persons, planets, symbols, etc.—The Lune's first editions were unbound chapbooks housed in pre-stamped envelopes and sold at bookstores along the Front Range.
With an emphasis on contemplative and collaborative poetics, our catalogue is shaped around the sense of wonder, delight in experiment, and concern for humanity reflected in the work of contemporary poets.
The Schuylkill Valley Journal publishes poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, flash fiction, nonfiction, "dispatches", personal reflections, and visual art.
Readers can expect literature that highlights refreshing contemporary perspectives and promotes cultural diversity while fostering inclusive creativity.
Lucky Jefferson isn't your typical literary journal—we generate constructive and interactive conversations around poetry, art, and publishing and rethink the way journals are produced and shared with readers and writers.

We especially enjoy lyricism, realism, the light breaking through the darkness. Beautiful prose poetry is sought.
Loud Coffee Press is a quarterly unpretentious and unapologetic literary journal that focuses on three things we love: flash fiction, coffee, and music. We look for writing that hovers in that perfect brew spot of 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit, where the entire piece rocks us to our core. Give us something that keeps us up at night and leaves our ears ringing the next day.
We have unique submission guidelines so we encourage submitters to read them. If you catch us in a good mood, we might be willing to overlook some guideline mistakes for the sake of a fantastic piece. However, our most significant turn-offs come in the form of bland, generic stories, pieces that don’t contain a story arc, or topics that are derivative of current trends. We love music-focused submissions, but we often have to deny a great piece because it could potentially violate copyright law with quoted song lyrics.
Founded in 2000, Empty Mirror publishes new work every Friday. Each issue typically includes one or two poetry features along with a personal essay and a book review or critical essay.
Chelsea Laine Wells says: "As fiction editor what I'm looking for above all else are affecting moments of beauty and/or discomfort, and if I'm not finding those and being struck by them, then I'm not apt to take the piece. If I do find those affecting moments, I’ll work with an author as much as is needed if there is editing to be done. So those scenes, those characters, those emotional moments that ring with you in both good and bad ways--or both--that's what our authors have in common. They are leaping off the page in undeniable ways."
We publish online at HypertextMag.com and in our print literary journal Hypertext Review. Please read our magazine before submitting.
"I decided some years ago that I wanted to create a space for people taking on the struggle, a venue to give those writers and artists a truly fair shot at publication and the chance to be seen, read, and recognized—no connections, no solicitations, and only blind reading. Here, the quality of work is all that matters, not who you know or where you come from or what you've already accomplished. A fair chance and an open hand for everyone—the underdogs, the in-betweeners, and the already established." —Jonathan Starke, Editor
Here at Blind Corner, our goal is to create an engaging, creative community for people to share their passion for the strange and the unusual. We strive to do this by publishing high-quality, user-submitted writing of all genres that focuses on the intriguing world of speculative fiction. While our primary focus is to showcase creative writing on a quarterly schedule, we are also a home for eloquent, thought-provoking nonfiction in the form of blogs, and essays—all of which will speak to our themes and be published recurrently.
