JuxtaProse is an online literary journal that publishes fiction, nonfiction and poetry from around the world. Our contributors have included Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, and Man Booker Prize winners, and other acclaimed authors from fifteen different countries. Alongside these established voices, we make a concentrated effort to publish the work of emerging authors -- including students and previously unpublished authors. Each of our quarterly issues reaches over 10,000 readers.
We believe that good storytelling begins with character. While we will consider any story that possesses literary merit, genre fiction is not our emphasis and will be a particularly difficult sell.
We currently publish approximately 3% of the fiction submissions, 4% of the nonfiction submissions, and less than 1% of the poetry submissions we receive.
We believe in supporting the creative endeavors of the writers of the world. We believe literature serves an existential function and its value to humanity is beyond measure. Therefore, we will always remain open to the possibility that an individual work may take us beyond the boundaries known today. We seek to publish work that reflects these values, offers new insights into the human condition, finds beauty in the garish, and that when we read it, we want to read it again and again. We want to fold an issue closed and find ourselves richer for knowing the words contained within.
Please follow our guidelines. Please send us your best. Please don't send work with gratuitous violence or sex in it. We nominate our authors for various awards. We host fee free submission days every reading period.
Established in 1974, we are the oldest surviving literary publication at New York University. If you are a poet, proser, prose-poet, painter, sculptor, photographer, digital illustrator—otherwise an experimenter of combining word and visual art—Minetta Review staff encourages you to submit your work. Though we are an undergraduate-managed journal, we welcome contributors from all around the world and of all ages.
If you would like to submit poetry, prose, or visual art, please read our submission guidelines thoroughly.
The Flexible Persona is an independent magazine of writing that publishes both online and biannual print issues.
We read for engaging, character-driven fiction in which something happens. Show us the story. We are open to all genres.
We crave creative nonfiction with a clear narration that explores both the large and the small of what it means to be human.
We also read for sharp-edged poetry.
Our annual flash fiction contest opens for entries from mid-October to mid-December, with winners and finalists announced in mid-January.
Please read your story aloud before submitting. This will help you avoid the syntactical problems that are often revealed through an oral reading. We do not charge a reading fee for mailed submissions. However, if you wish to submit electronically, there is a fee associated to alleviate the costs of our online submission manager.
Nude Bruce Review is a nonprofit publication. Simply put, we strive to publish compelling and high-quality work and to allow emerging and existing writers from the United States and beyond the opportunity to establish face and to showcase their talents.
Our tastes are eclectic, so any subject matter is welcome. In terms of forms of poetry, we're partial towards free verse, narrative, and experimental, but a well-crafted sonnet, ghazal, or pantoum can also make us swoon. When it comes down to brass tacks, our hope is to read something and be benevolently envious that we didn't write it. Please refer to our previous issues on our website to infer some of our preferences; moreover, please refer to our website for our submission guidelines. Peace, love, and Bruce.
