New authors make up 10% or less of each issue, but don't let that discourage you. We are interested in passionate new voices whose words and ideas hit us in the gut and leave us thinking about their work days after reading.

West Trade Review strives to put forth the best contemporary poetry, fiction, artwork, and photography and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers. Our mission is to perpetuate the work of artists both well known and yet-to-be-known, simultaneously enriching our world through the written word and visual arts. We strive to reflect diversity in style, content and perspective throughout prose, poetry, photography and other artwork. Our goal is to simply present to you the best art possible by both emerging and established creative minds.

 

We embrace diversity and like works that are edgy and affect us intellectually and emotionally. Quality of writing, style, and characterization are important to us. Please don't send us poems that rhyme, slam-style works, or dogmatically religious pieces.

Loud Coffee Press is a quarterly unpretentious and unapologetic literary journal that focuses on three things we love: flash fiction, coffee, and music. We look for writing that hovers in that perfect brew spot of 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit, where the entire piece rocks us to our core. Give us something that keeps us up at night and leaves our ears ringing the next day.

We have unique submission guidelines so we encourage submitters to read them. If you catch us in a good mood, we might be willing to overlook some guideline mistakes for the sake of a fantastic piece. However, our most significant turn-offs come in the form of bland, generic stories, pieces that don’t contain a story arc, or topics that are derivative of current trends. We love music-focused submissions, but we often have to deny a great piece because it could potentially violate copyright law with quoted song lyrics.

The Zodiac Review was launched in 2011 to provide a quality venue for readers and new, emerging and established writers of "literary/genre" fiction—the merger of literary fiction and (nearly) any genre that joins it. Here new and emerging writers will find a writing studio of sorts as well as a receptive venue for publication. Editors provide free, personal feedback for all submissions. We also facilitate reader/writer communications, and expect to submit Pushcart nominations.

Please see our website (thezodiacreview.com)for the latest information on our submission periods. When we are open for submissions, please follow our guidelines! (Remarkably few writers do!) And of course read some of our published stories and prose poems.

Club Plum publishes flash fiction, prose poetry and art that often straddles realities without losing clarity or emotion. Powerful, single-reality pieces are loved, too.

The editor treasures the writing process, from inspiration to publication, as writer and as editor; please adhere to the simple submission guidelines to show you care, too. Words that describe accepted pieces: surreal, lyrical, tight, beautiful, melancholy, true. The editor will publish wondrous and/or fierce work, or she will publish nothing.

Chelsea Laine Wells says: "As fiction editor what I'm looking for above all else are affecting moments of beauty and/or discomfort, and if I'm not finding those and being struck by them, then I'm not apt to take the piece. If I do find those affecting moments, I’ll work with an author as much as is needed if there is editing to be done. So those scenes, those characters, those emotional moments that ring with you in both good and bad ways--or both--that's what our authors have in common. They are leaping off the page in undeniable ways."

We publish online at HypertextMag.com and in our print literary journal Hypertext Review. Please read our magazine before submitting.
