Coal Hill publishes an online, multi-genre literary journal in February, June, and November of each year. Each issue features 8-10 poets, 4-5 prose writers, and 2 in-depth book reviews. At least 30% of the journal is comprised of Pittsburgh writers (Our definition of Pittsburgh writer is simply that you live or have spent a significant time in the city. The pieces submitted do not need to be Pittsburgh themed.) We’re looking for a wide range of voices; we hope you’ll be one of them.
Founded in 1952, Grub Street is Towson University’s literary journal. Produced annually, we publish works of fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and visual art.
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.
Forty-Eight Review is an online literary magazine that strives to feature the works of Asian writers of all ages around the world. We believe in the power of words and its ability to bring people together, aiming to increase Asian representation in media. Our mission is to celebrate Asia’s diversity through literature. Following our belief that everybody should be able to see themselves as the hero of their own story, we are strong advocates for diversity in fiction and other forms of media.
Forty-Eight Review likes to see honest and meaningful writing. All genres, including experimental prose and poetry, are encouraged.

Foundlings Magazine presents a stimulating hash of poetry and images. While we accept all types, styles, and subgenres of poetry, each magazine contains and places some emphasis on "found" poetry and images.
We seek to publish - in paper and ink - the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved."
We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”
akinoga press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.
We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.
akinoga press is currently closed for submissions/unsolicited manuscripts; check back in mid-2019 for the next reading period.
If you are familiar with the press and catalogue, and you feel like you have a manuscript/project that meshes with akinoga's aesthetics and mission, please keep the press in mind when the reading period is open again.
Magic exists all around us. We all possess magical power, creative power. All we need to do is look inside ourselves and believe in our own truth. Mystic Illuminations is the voice of mystics and creators who dare to see beyond the scope of the mundane. The literature cultivated in this literary journal will make you think as you journey there and back again.
What we are looking for in work to include in our journal is exceptional quality writing and a touch of magic, which can mean a lot of different things. So, use your imagination and send us your best work.
