Night Picnic is a bilingual journal of literature and art which publishes work in both English and Russian. We translate our authors' work into Russian. We accept novels, novellas, plays, short and flash stories, fairytales for adults, poetry, interviews, essays (including popular science essays), letters to the editors, and artwork.
We encourage authors to submit all that is strange, dark, jubilant, complex, confusing, scary, mystical, and multidimensional. We do NOT publish memoirs, heavy science fiction, political essays, and pornography. We do NOT publish manuscripts with chauvinistic and fascistic tendencies. You must be at least 18 years old to submit.
Bluestem, a nationally recognized literary journal that publishes the brightest new, emerging, and established literary voices, has been published since 1966 and is produced by the English Department at Eastern Illinois University. The journal has largely been run by women of perception and talent for the past several decades, and continues to feature excellent work by women and female-identifying writers. Bluestem finds and publishes impactful work by writers who are quietly creating beauty in their respective corners of the world.
Pine Hills Review publishes artful, honest, and compelling work of new and established writers, from fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to visual art, interviews, and experimental, cross-genre work.
Send your best work, of course. More specifically, send work that are the outcasts in your own work, that other places won't publish.
La Piccioletta Barca aims to collect and publish high quality art, regardless of the medium. We do not discriminate between new and established authors, and accept anything from classical to experimental art, as long as it is of a high standard.
Please read past issues to familiarise yourself with the style of the journal. As we are open to multiple different forms and genres, we try to retain some unity between the pieces through their style. If you are thinking of composing a piece specifically for us, feel free to get in touch with a pitch first, to make sure that it is something we would consider for publication.
We seek storytellers—not just for fiction, but in all the genres we publish. We love clarity in art, but that doesn’t necessarily mean simplicity. Tell us a story. It could be a story in a poem, an essay, an image, but it is still a story. You tell it because it needs to be told. If you can make us feel the same way, we’ll work together to bring that story to the world.
