Nōd Magazine is the sole creative writing publication at the University of Calgary. The journal is a creative publication emerging out of an academic environment. The magazine is run by wayward undergraduates who cannot be subdued by essays. We publish innovative work intersecting between the literary and visual arts communities, and seek work that blurs the boundaries of convention.
Push against the borders between genres, mediums, and ideas. Defamiliarize yourself.
The Brown Orient exclusively publishes women and LGBTQ+ writers and artists from local and diasporic South Asia, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia, and Central Asia.
We believe that what you create reveals so much about your soul, may it be weaved from figments or based on fragments of real experiences. Give us stories that give us a glimpse of your world, poems that speak your truth.
Magic exists all around us. We all possess magical power, creative power. All we need to do is look inside ourselves and believe in our own truth. Mystic Illuminations is the voice of mystics and creators who dare to see beyond the scope of the mundane. The literature cultivated in this literary journal will make you think as you journey there and back again.
What we are looking for in work to include in our journal is exceptional quality writing and a touch of magic, which can mean a lot of different things. So, use your imagination and send us your best work.
Deep Overstock is the International Booksellers' Journal. Our fourth issue is all about Nautical Lore. We'd love to read short stories under 2500, flash fiction, mircofiction and poetry especially. We'd also love art, sculpture, spells, comics--any medium. SOS! SOS! Take us a sailing, oh captain!
Our prose editors are Mickey Collins and Robert Eversmann. Our poetry editor is Ariel Kusby. And our art editor is Piers Rippey. In your bio, please include any bookselling experience you might have had in the past. Mention if you worked at a library or a bookstore or a store that sold books. Or please tell us simply why you love bookstores, what bookstores mean to you, what significant experience you've had in a bookstore or with a bookseller.

Strange is not always better. Simple and clear are not always memorable.
We look for well-crafted, thoughtful, and thought-provoking writing and visual art that examines, interprets, and redefines the full spectrum of life, past and present, in the Midwest. The Midwest is the region of the north central United States that includes the Great Lakes area and the upper Mississippi River valley (according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Midwest is comprised of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Missouri). Of course, the Midwest is also a state of mind.
Revise your work, proofread, and be professional, patient, and persistent.
