We aim to publish a rich variety of short fiction and poetry, penned by both emerging and established writers. We tend to select work that reflects positivity and kindness, and while we publish several genres, we have a soft spot for both romance and women's fiction.

Take a look at our previously published pieces of fiction and poetry to gain an idea of what we are looking for. Additionally, keep an eye on our upcoming themed contests.

Thurston Howl Publications is a small progressive publishing house in Lansing, Michigan. We have specialized in animal fiction and evocative literature.

The best way to appeal to any of our editors is to move them in a certain way. Your horror should terrify; your fantasy amaze; your erotica arouse; your political lit intrigue.

Many, we work more as an art blog.

 

  Not Your Mothers Breast Milk is an art blog dedicated to sharing stories about the human experience, connecting with one another, and giving artists an outlet to express their struggles and successes on this journey through life.

     We're looking for something that makes us feel. It can make us feel joy, sadness, anger, silliness, etc, etc. Just make us feel something. 

     Have a piece that you love that maybe needs a little more work? Send it in! Our editing team will look it over and give you feedback about how you could make it stronger! When submitting, put "Tweak" in the subject line to let us know you want feedback on it!

POST(blank) is a bilingual word-art publication, in which we curate a dialogue between the visual and literary arts. We look for any works that either attempt to, and can be used to, create a dialogue between these two media.

Take a careful look at our submission guidelines and attempt to follow the theme. However, DO NOT be afraid to freely interpret the theme in any way that makes sense to you. We are looking for all people willing to help us fully dissect every possibility available in each issue's theme.

TL;DR: unconventional, genre-expanding art/lit so that we might pour out the branded-content-over-saturated spaces of our lives and refill them with the avant garde. New voices, new literature. TRUE LIVING, DOCUMENTED RELENTLESSLY

The more out-of-the-box the submission is, the better. TL;DR is dedicated to literature that expands literature and challenges pre-concieved notions about the boxes we write and creatively present our documented realities and histories in.
