We're focused on showcasing diverse writers because we want to give a platform for stories told from new perspectives, particularly if they are told by marginalized voices. We're not concerned with credentials in terms of prior publications or degrees. Instead, we look for quality writing that stands out, whether it's from a seasoned author or emerging writer.

We recommend reading stories that we have already published to get a feel for the type of narratives we prefer. We also really appreciate crisp, well-revised manuscripts. Other than that, the best way to impress us is by submitting a unique story that leaves a lasting impression.

The Phantom Billstickers Cafe Reader is a quarterly literary zine featuring short stories, poems, art and editorial by both New Zealanders and international authors. The stories we publish are heartfelt glimpses into family, community, and the more colourful aspects of the creative life. Our contributors are a collection of globally recognized authors and emerging artists who deserve to be heard. 2017 will be our 5th year publishing the Café Reader. 2,000 copies are distributed in the USA through 50 independent bookstores. 10,000 free copies are distributed in New Zealand.

Although we do publish some poetry in each issue, the Café Reader is not a ‘poetry’ publication. Short fiction is more likely to be accepted. Emerging voices are as likely to be published as established authors. We value diversity. We admire content that is thought provoking, heartfelt, humorous and that challenges the norm.

The Beautiful Losers are the people that live at the margins. The ones that dare to try, to live, to sing. The ones that aren’t afraid of failure, that pursue the beauty of it all. The ones that aren’t rebels, special, normal, alternative, crazy, underdogs, established; the only thing that they want is to find, once again, that perfect moment. This is a place where real literature happens; think of it as a double shot on the rocks, in a world of whiskey neats.

Words Apart is a literary magazine dedicated to social justice issues. We highlight frequently overlooked issues—political, social, or cultural—affect humankind. Our authorship and readership span the globe, and include emerging writers, as well as pieces from and interviews with more established artists. We encourage you to use art—written and visual—to explore the ways that discourse can shape the world and change it for the better.

We welcome any subject matter, but give priority to work that focuses on social justice or marginalized perspectives. We are accepting unpublished fiction, poetry, essays, investigative journalism, interviews, photography, (photos of) artwork, recordings of slam poetry, and short films. Work that doesn't relate to our theme is welcome. Please review the guidelines on our website for more information.

Whiskey Tit attempts to restore degradation and degeneracy to the literary arts. We’re pretty sure we are succeeding here. This is usually because the works don’t fit neatly into genre/length/media packages. We proudly publish books that are too long or too short, books in which the authors insist upon no back cover blurbs, books whose best genre descriptions might be “comedy of terror,” “memnoir,” “randy seafaring misadventure,” or “low-tech noir.”

Please be uncompromising in your vision, unwavering in your standards, and exacting in your vision.
