Elsewhere cares only about the line / no line. We want short prose works (flash fiction, prose poetry, nonfiction) that cross, blur, and/or mutilate genre. We publish six writers and one photo quarterly. Give us your homeless, your animals, your lunch money: we're hungry.

Literary short stories and flash for our February and October issues.

Literary Speculative short stories and flash for our July issue.

We seek work that is high concept: imaginative, thoughtful, and open to possibilities. Give us deep, diverse characters. Blend genres. Connect seemingly disparate ideas. Keep it entertaining, but make us think. Originality will help your submission. If your story regards a topic that’s been published a lot, it’s probably not for us.

Night Picnic is a bilingual journal of literature and art which publishes work in both English and Russian. We translate our authors' work into Russian. We accept novels, novellas, plays, short and flash stories, fairytales for adults, poetry, interviews, essays (including popular science essays), letters to the editors, and artwork. 

We encourage authors to submit all that is strange, dark, jubilant, complex, confusing, scary, mystical, and multidimensional. We do NOT publish memoirs, heavy science fiction, political essays, and pornography. We do NOT publish manuscripts with chauvinistic and fascistic tendencies. You must be at least 18 years old to submit.

We are seeking: vivid imagery and the balance of abstract to concrete imagery, the capacity to surprise, an elastic syntax, pace, and music, thematic cohesiveness and the emotional range and maturity, deft handling of highly charged emotion, use of wit, humor, and self-implication, choice and use of extended metaphor, skillfully juxtaposing the micro and the macro, and more.

All comers welcome.

Unlike our late Spring reading period, manuscripts should be buttoned up and ready to sail. We hope to add three titles to our 20-21 catalog. $500 on signing, color cover, standard royalty, additional support as needed.

Please note an important update to our guidelines: a strong confident voice is no longer essential.

David Fenza, Joe Bolton, Sarah Gorham, Matthew Graham, Patricia Grossman, John Drano, Steven Cramer, etc.

Number of Debut Authors per Issue: 
Varies

Another New Calligraphy's online journal publishes short works connected in its exploration of conflict, a term open to interpretation though ever present in these increasingly challenging times.

As in ANC's other endeavors, Impossible Task is always on the lookout for further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy and Impossible Task as a home for their work.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work exploring the human experience, our internal worlds, and life among others; these complex systems are often clearest in our slightest moments.

Another New Calligraphy has published printed works since 2009. Commonalities include mental health, identity, culture, ecology, and personal reflection. Please familiarize yourself with recent projects for a general sense of these themes and their past expression.

We love a strong sense of line and imagery. We love narratives and a strongly-linked series. When we read, we are drawn to poems about nature and science imagery, persona and historical poems, magical realism, and poems about or by minorities in all sense of the word.  If the poems don’t reveal a strong voice, we are not interested. As far as form, we prefer free verse but love a few form poems thrown in. Prose poems and poems a few pages long are also interesting to our ears. For flash, it is not much different.

Read the guidelines. Please. To find out what the press likes, buy one of the books. Support the Arts!
