We love work that is linguistically, intellectually, and emotionally demanding of the reader. We want literary fiction that grows in complexity upon each visitation; we enjoy ornate, cerebral, and voluptuous prose executed with thematic intent. Writers we admire are Zadie Smith, Virginia Woolf, Tom Wolfe, Charles Dickens, Thomas Mann, Robert Musil, Tom Stoppard, Vladimir Nabokov and James Baldwin.

Every piece published in AZURE appears alongside a customized black & white sketch that is devised and executed by our in-house illustrator.

We accept literary fiction, novel excerpts, creative non-fiction, screenplays, stageplays, fragments, meanderings, philosophy and poetry.  We are not concerned with genre distinctions; we want only for it to be thoughtful, intelligent, and beautiful. All writers tend to develop a scrap heap of brilliant writing - sharp dialogue that has been cut in service of a plot, a philosophical tirade that can't quite be couched in a narrative, a stunning imagistic landscape of linguistic pyrotechnics that deserves an audience... literary beauty that cannot necessarily be expressed in more than bursts and fragments.

The Deadly Writers Patrol seeks writing by veterans and others affected by war that addresses the challenges of understanding, witnessing, and homecoming. We believe writing can be a mirror reflecting the deepest corners of our spirits and psyches, express the reality of suffering, explore the possibility of healing, help us resolve problems, and achieve a deeper understanding of our common humanity. It also can bring us face to face with the parts of life that always will remain a mystery.

The Deadly Writers Patrol (DWP) has published fiction, poetry, and memoir by and about veterans for over a decade. We look for writers with all ranges of publication experience, including previously unpublished writers and those who have not been affiliated with an MFA program. DWP is open to writing by veterans on any topic, but we are also open to writing by non-veterans that is directly concerned with issues related to war, survival, and healing.

Spilled Milk Magazine is an online literary magazine for fiction and nonfiction, poetry, art and photography. We are eager to publish work that surprises us—that disregards boundaries and borders. Spilled Milk strives to be a home from unheard voices.

The work that we like pushes the boundaries of our expectations and takes us into a mental place that we have never imagined, yet feel as though it were written specifically for us. We’ve noticed in our brief time of running this magazine that many authors don’t push their work as far as they could. In that, they have the beginnings or inklings of something very adventurous and innovative but then shield away from the precipice. We encourage writers submitting to us to hang out in those weird rooms they’re drawn to and keep digging.
