Pine Hills Review publishes artful, honest, and compelling work of new and established writers, from fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to visual art, interviews, and experimental, cross-genre work. 

Send your best work, of course. More specifically, send work that are the outcasts in your own work, that other places won't publish.

Cagibi is invested in sharing the universal human experiences to be found in works of prose and poetry set within places unfamiliar to readers; thus, our expressed interest in international—or world—literature, and works in translation. Cagibi is versatile in its purpose and mission to readers and writers. The journal concerns literature in which character conflict, ultimately story, is tied to place.

Scribble is an exciting online venue for exceptional flash and short fiction. This eclectic journal is open to literary fiction and all fiction genres with a literary approach.We accept unsolicited submissions all year long and publish 3-5 short stories bi-monthly (every two months).

Rather than beautifully-written vignettes, the editors of Scribble enjoy beautifully-written literary and general fiction stories that feature a character or characters who change somehow, for some reason, by the end of the story, or a character who does or experiences something unexpected. Please note that we publish pieces that are 2,000 words or less.

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voices, we make a concentrated effort to publish the work of emerging authors -- including students and previously unpublished authors.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 love literature. We love reading it, we love writing it, and we love talking about it. We also love delving into the "deep shelf" material of favorite authors and discovering exciting new voices. At the Midnight Oil, we seek to provide a venue where new and emerging writers can be published alongside established masters of their craft, where old favorites and new favorites collide, and you’ll find writing that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, even when you know that you really should be getting to bed.

We do not provide book reviews, pull quotes, or endorsements of any kind. We do not subscribe to any mailing lists. We do not accept submissions via e-mail. Any e-mails that fall into these categories will be deleted unread, if you would like to submit, please follow the procedures outlined on our Submit page.

Call + Response is a literary and arts journal providing a creative hub for new and emerging artists of color. We aim to introduce fresh and creative voices to the world through diverse and original art, poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews.

This journal is a celebration and an exploration made by POC, for POC.

This is a safe place for creatives to be, well, creative. But this is also a hate-free zone. Although we will accept political and mature work with topics like sexuality, gender identity, racism, colorism, sexism, reproductive rights, etc. We will not accept work that explicitly details rape, murder and/or bodily or self-harm.

Assisi’s mission is, first and foremost, to publish works of literature and art that are thoughtful, engaging, and well written/composed. We look for work that examines the human condition, that helps the reader view things from a slightly different angle, and that provokes an emotional response not for mere shock value but rather as a way to open up new ways of thinking about or relating to the world. 

Please make sure that you follow the submission guidelines, especially the requirement for submissions to be blind.
