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.

Reed Bye, Jack Collom, Laura Cesarco Eglin, Anne Waldman, Ella Longpre, Maureen Seaton, Joanna Ruocco, David Mutschlecner, Jaime Robles, Jonathan Simkins, &c.

New authors make up 10% or less of each issue, but don't let that discourage you. We are interested in passionate new voices whose words and ideas hit us in the gut and leave us thinking about their work days after reading.

West Trade Review strives to put forth the best contemporary poetry, fiction, artwork, and photography and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers. Our mission is to perpetuate the work of artists both well known and yet-to-be-known, simultaneously enriching our world through the written word and visual arts. We strive to reflect diversity in style, content and perspective throughout prose, poetry, photography and other artwork. Our goal is to simply present to you the best art possible by both emerging and established creative minds.

 

We embrace diversity and like works that are edgy and affect us intellectually and emotionally. Quality of writing, style, and characterization are important to us. Please don't send us poems that rhyme, slam-style works, or dogmatically religious pieces.

The Zodiac Review was launched in 2011 to provide a quality venue for readers and new, emerging and established writers of "literary/genre" fiction—the merger of literary fiction and (nearly) any genre that joins it. Here new and emerging writers will find a writing studio of sorts as well as a receptive venue for publication. Editors provide free, personal feedback for all submissions. We also facilitate reader/writer communications, and expect to submit Pushcart nominations.

Please see our website (thezodiacreview.com)for the latest information on our submission periods. When we are open for submissions, please follow our guidelines! (Remarkably few writers do!) And of course read some of our published stories and prose poems.

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.
