New authors make up 10% or less of each issue, but don't let that discourage you. We are interested in passionate new voices whose words and ideas hit us in the gut and leave us thinking about their work days after reading.

West Trade Review strives to put forth the best contemporary poetry, fiction, artwork, and photography and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers. Our mission is to perpetuate the work of artists both well known and yet-to-be-known, simultaneously enriching our world through the written word and visual arts. We strive to reflect diversity in style, content and perspective throughout prose, poetry, photography and other artwork. Our goal is to simply present to you the best art possible by both emerging and established creative minds.

 

We embrace diversity and like works that are edgy and affect us intellectually and emotionally. Quality of writing, style, and characterization are important to us. Please don't send us poems that rhyme, slam-style works, or dogmatically religious pieces.

Loud Coffee Press is a quarterly unpretentious and unapologetic literary journal that focuses on three things we love: flash fiction, coffee, and music. We look for writing that hovers in that perfect brew spot of 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit, where the entire piece rocks us to our core. Give us something that keeps us up at night and leaves our ears ringing the next day.

We have unique submission guidelines so we encourage submitters to read them. If you catch us in a good mood, we might be willing to overlook some guideline mistakes for the sake of a fantastic piece. However, our most significant turn-offs come in the form of bland, generic stories, pieces that don’t contain a story arc, or topics that are derivative of current trends. We love music-focused submissions, but we often have to deny a great piece because it could potentially violate copyright law with quoted song lyrics.
