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.

We strive to assemble a collection of literature and art designed and written with purpose and demonstrating passion for the work. We are open to unconventional work, while still appreciating the traditional. We are committed to publishing literature and art that is inclusive of diverse identities, perspectives, and crafts. We encourage new voices, but accept work from established artists and writers as well.

Read the guidelines carefully, and follow them.

For issue #4, we are adding a themed dossier on “Connections.” Explore this idea in any way you choose: connections between individual people who have close relationships with each other, or between groups of people across national boundaries; connections between humans and the natural world; connections between ideas, historical periods, different arts; connections we haven’t thought of. Be sure to submit within the appropriate section and identify the genre of the submission in the title. Also please follow the guidelines for that genre.

Madcap Review is a semiannual online journal of art and literature. As our name indicates, we embrace the impulsive, the reckless, and the lively, but we also have great respect for form and restraint. Founded in 2014 by a group of fiction writers, poets, and artists, Madcap is a platform for any and all forms of writing and art. We have no genre restrictions because we believe that great writing isn’t easily categorized.

Send us work you’re proud of, and please read the submission guidelines.

Cagibi is invested in sharing the universal human experiences to be found in works of prose and poetry set within places unfamiliar to readers; thus, our expressed interest in international—or world—literature, and works in translation. Cagibi is versatile in its purpose and mission to readers and writers. The journal concerns literature in which character conflict, ultimately story, is tied to place.

Scribble is an exciting online venue for exceptional flash and short fiction. This eclectic journal is open to literary fiction and all fiction genres with a literary approach.We accept unsolicited submissions all year long and publish 3-5 short stories bi-monthly (every two months).

Rather than beautifully-written vignettes, the editors of Scribble enjoy beautifully-written literary and general fiction stories that feature a character or characters who change somehow, for some reason, by the end of the story, or a character who does or experiences something unexpected. Please note that we publish pieces that are 2,000 words or less.
