Mission: To publish the best writing, thought and information about work, or lack thereof, while providing a forum for readership to connect and respond.

WORK is dedicated to celebrating the daily grind: white collar, blue collar, pink collar, sex work, food service, freelancing and more.

WORK has an intentionally bland format, so that it can be enjoyed while you’re still on the clock. WORK is subversive, so you can be subversive at work.

Please be previously unpublished. Feel free to submit WORD or RTF docs via WORK's online submission form. If submitting via email, please use the word submission in the subject line. Please attach .doc format. No PDFs.

Clockwise Cat is a progressive literary webzine that features verse, reviews, and invective (satire/polemics). Clockwise Cat prefers to receive poems that are in some way akin to the Symbolist, Dadaist, Surrealist, Beat, spoken word, and experimental genres. However, we will regard all well-crafted submissions that brashly flout conventions.

Rivet publishes writing that breaks from the mainstream to surprise, challenge, and delight. Each issue brings together poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that test the boundaries of form and content--a surrealist sestina followed by a lyric essay on multiracial identity then a flash fiction set in humanity’s far future--the intersections as intriguing as the works themselves. Rivet writers explore their craft fearlessly and thoughtfully, and our editors are dedicated to providing them with a professional venue for publishing experimental work.

We are interested in: surreal, fabulist, and remix aesthetics; political and controversial topics; hybrid and multimedia things that play well online; literary takes on popular genres; reviews of books/media and interviews of people that would be of interest to our audience. We are not interested in: shock value alone; middle class ennui. Most of all, surprise us with something we’ve never seen before, that moves and reveals. We believe in the author-editor relationship, and we work with each writer to fully realize their vision. If that’s something you are as excited about as we are, then we want to read your work.

We want to bring out the very best stories and poetry that we can get our grubby little mittens on. Writing that crosses borders (metaphorically and literally) effortlessly. That makes us feel things that we didn’t know we could feel, or simply just entertain the pants off of us.

We love stories that are wildly hilarious, off the wall, surreal and surprising, but also stories that are serious, and moving, and have something to say. Our poetry desires are fickle and we’re always willing to have our minds changed at any moment by really good writing. However, in general things that warm our hearts include poems about magic, dirty makeouts, vomit and dinosaurs, whereas we’re a bit meh about poems about breakups, drinking in bars, and the seasons as metaphors for your heart.
