"I decided some years ago that I wanted to create a space for people taking on the struggle, a venue to give those writers and artists a truly fair shot at publication and the chance to be seen, read, and recognized—no connections, no solicitations, and only blind reading. Here, the quality of work is all that matters, not who you know or where you come from or what you've already accomplished. A fair chance and an open hand for everyone—the underdogs, the in-betweeners, and the already established." —Jonathan Starke, Editor

Here at Blind Corner, our goal is to create an engaging, creative community for people to share their passion for the strange and the unusual. We strive to do this by publishing high-quality, user-submitted writing of all genres that focuses on the intriguing world of speculative fiction. While our primary focus is to showcase creative writing on a quarterly schedule, we are also a home for eloquent, thought-provoking nonfiction in the form of blogs, and essays—all of which will speak to our themes and be published recurrently.

A Velvet Giant is a collective space for work that exists outside the boundaries of genre. We recognize that it can feel impossible to talk about writing without categorizing it. When we say genreless, we don’t mean apolitical. Writing that resists binary categories such as fiction/nonfiction or poetry/prose is inherently queer and inherently political. We want writing that exists in the world, that resists tradition and expectations to build towards new ways of creating, feeling, and being.

We love ambiguity: flash pieces, found pieces, cross-genre experiments, the "poem" that thinks it might be a story, the "story" that thinks it might be a poem. Retellings and reimaginings. Works that chips away at institutional structures. Work that breaks everything down so that it can build.

TVBR publishes poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, photography, and visual art that memorably express what it means to be human. Our editorial focus is on authentic voices and evocative images. We seek work that haunts us. The best way to learn what we seek in manuscripts is to read our current on-line issues, as well as our hard copy back issues. We publish both established and emerging writers. We approach all submissions with respect. We expect writers to get to know our work before approaching us.

We accept online submissions only. Be a careful reader. Study the markets and give them the thoughtful attention you seek for your own work. Read your work out loud, maybe even record it to catch the weak spots before sending it out.

The Owen Wister Review is the University of Wyoming’s Arts and Literary Journal produced through the Student Media department. The editorial staff is comprised entirely of undergraduate and graduate students who have nuanced yet supportive tastes in art and writing and strive to publish the best quality creative non-fiction, poetry, fiction, and art submitted from both emerging and established authors and artists. We encourage work that challenges itself, that is naturally surprising.

While we have strong roots in promoting western-themed writing, we do not make it our primary focus. We encourage submissions of quality work regardless of theme or location. Please read our submission guidelines before submitting, and please do give us plenty of notice if you are submitting simultaneously. Since we publish only unpublished work, we do need to know if the piece is accepted elsewhere. We highly recommend submitting online for these reasons. Thank you!

Heart of Flesh is a biannual, online literary journal that seeks quality writing and art with a Christian element. We are not a typical “Christian fiction” journal. We believe God’s truth as written in the Bible can be found in both the secular and the non-secular, in nearly every work of literature and every part of the human condition.

We prefer literary work, but we accept all genres of poetry, flash fiction, short stories, nonfiction, and visual art & photography from both Christians and non-Christians as long as it includes a Christian theme.

We like hopeful. We also like bleak. We like desperation and grit. But only if there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We want to see that golden pinprick of light guiding us out of the darkness.
