We want work that is urgent and beautiful, that was written with lightning and a sense that tomorrow may never come. We want work that pushes edges and tells us something new. We love work that is personal and political—political in the largest sense, as in awareness of who has the power and how it is they came to have it. We publish interviews and book reviews and review-essays.

We are interested in creating conversational spaces, and pieces that provoke thought-change. We want to hear from new voices and emerging voices as well as our literary mentors, established writers, and ancestors.

Please take a look at the website, read the submissions guidelines, what we've previously published, and deeply consider whether your work engages with our mission. We want manuscripts that work on a cellular level. We are a hands-on, collaborative press, from editing to layout and design, to getting your work seen.

Virga is rain that takes some cloud down with it–precipitation with parachute.

Virga is also a poetry journal. Here, we hope to publish poems that take some of the sky down to the page.

Our tastes are eclectic, but we would like to see poems that demonstrate elegance, empathy, and experimentation. This is to say, we want content that is well-crafted, that pays reverent attention to detail; content that keeps humanity at its center; content that innovates.

To get a sense of what we like to publish, read a recent issue of Virga.

Hematopoiesis is the body's method of creating new blood cells. As a digital publication, our intention is to offer refuge to this process while disrupting dominant conversations on (dis)embodiment.

We come to you with questions: What is written, and being written, in the body and how do we express our physiology? How do we claim bodies through language, in a world that diminishes and erases so many bodies? How, like the continuous process of making new blood, do we create meaning in a world of loss & violence? What exists in the borderlands of body? 

We are now reading for ISSUE 3: SCARIFICATION. An excerpt from the call reads:

Skin-haunt.

A place where the wound has closed. A place where the wound won’t bleed even if you need it to.

Rip and scatter, roughed up by this rearrangement of cells. Languages of injury and repair. What happened here.

Deadline December 15th!

Arkana is the journal of mysteries and marginalized voices. We seek and foster a sense of shared wonder by privileging art that asks questions, explores mystery, and works to discover and uncover the overlooked, the misunderstood, and the silent.

Send us polished, insightful work that follows our guidelines, using our Submittable page. We value work that uses voices we haven't heard before or haven't heard from enough, work that asks tough questions about the world and about what it means to be human, and work that blurs the boundaries of genre. We accept work from writers with fancy MFA degrees and writers still in high school, writers from our home base in Arkansas to writers from the universe at large.

In these times when the Earth and humanity seem so breakable, as if they might break each other, we search for answers in the air. What’s our next move? What did I just see on the news? What does this moment demand of me? Poets interpret their screens, sing to nature, and admonish us our selfishness. Califragile is a portrait of turning, questioning, stretching, stepping up.

We consider most topics, not violent, pornographic, or oppressive. We seek writing that's spare and economic while showing what’s possible with imagery. We prefer modern free verse over rhyming, metered work. But quality walks in on its own. Offer us something thrilling and unexpected. Have something to say, whether on the micro or macro level. Send us your poems that deepen the dialog.
