We are a non-institutional aggregator of mediocre literature. We aren't as off the wall as we are on the floor. While our editors continue their efforts to undermine each other, we're on a hunt for beavers eager to usurp the traps and give the literary world a bathetic run for its money. 

Be crass if you think we can't handle your genius.

If you send a fish sandwich with your hard copy submission, you will be moved to the top of the pile. However, doing so does not guarantee publication.

Waxwing is a literary journal promoting the tremendous cultural diversity of contemporary American literature, alongside international voices in translation. We believe that American voices are, at their cores, both multicultural and multinational, and so the editors’ mission is to include American writers from all cultural identities — in terms of race, ethnicity, indigenous tribe, gender, class, sexuality, age, education, ability, language, religion, and region — alongside international voices, published bilingually. 

Waxwing publishes poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, reviews, art, and music, as well as international literature in translation. Waxwing currently accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translations; all other content is solicited.

Due to the high number of submissions and Submittable’s fees for magazines, Waxwing caps submissions at 300/month—submitting at the beginning of the month improves your chances of catching us before we hit the limit. If you are unable to submit due to closure, please come back and submit the next month.

We want to share queerness in its infinite artistic forms; in stories and poems and prose and photos and drawings and paintings (and in art that doesn’t fit into a category, too).

We want to share art that explores the construction of gender and sexuality and identity and how that affects individuals & groups; but also queer hopes, queer traditions & families, queer politics, queer art and queer history and queer bodies.
