COAST|noCOAST is an annual print journal of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, poetics, and art with "offices" in Cincinnati, Ohio and Seattle, Washington. While our literary interests are diverse in form and content, we are looking for the bridges between the works we love. We publish COAST|noCOAST as an interrogation of our aesthetics as well as an exploration of our regions' poetry and art. A portion of each issue is dedicated to the writers and artists of Southwest Ohio and the Puget Sound. 

We seek work that is self-concious (potentially experimental) in form and context (literary, historical, or otherwise).

Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We are an international journal, and the world has much to offer our readers.

We are the Metaworker, a literary blog (or lit magazine on the internet) created by millenials, for millenials.

We started out as a group of recent graduates from Chapman University, where we were editors of the on-campus literary magazine, the Calliope. It’s been two years since then, and we’ve been publishing poetry, fiction, and nonfiction from a variety of submitters every Monday. Our goal is simply to publish things that we, and our target audience, find interesting. So far, we feel we’ve done a pretty good job.

Our guidelines are intentionally loose, and while we have a “wish list” of certain types of submissions we’re very interested in, we’re willing to look at pretty much anything. We especially love unusual submissions that defy our expectations.

Seeking original fiction, poetry, essays, and scripts/screenplays that include a skeleton, or bones (in all connotations), in some way. (It can be as direct as a skeleton protagonist and as oblique as a passing mention of bones.)

Have fun with the theme. We've had great spooky, gothic work, as well as loving nature poetry, and humorous work.
