MORIA is a national online literary magazine with an all-student editorial board, based at Woodbury University in greater Los Angeles. We accept poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from emerging and established writers in the United States and across the world. We publish twice-a-year, in the late fall and late spring.

While we accept all styles — including experimental, hybrid, and conventional forms — we aren’t interested in submissions of light verse, genre fiction, and any piece that references gratuitous violence or exploitative sexual imagery. We’re committed to publishing a diverse range of poets and writers. In our debut issue (2017), 73% of our authors were women and 24% were writers of color. We also published pieces from writers in their 20s to writers in their 70s — and every decade in between. We welcome work from traditionally under-represented groups, including women writers, indigenous writers, writers of color, writers who identify as LGBTQ, and writers with disabilities.

Red Wheelbarrow (since 2000), formerly Bottomfish, believes that everything that crosses the transom merits deep attention. We believe that beauty and meaning will inhabit wildly varied and unexpected tones and styles. Our journal is well produced, eclectic, tough minded, open, lyrical, passionate-socio-politically engaged-and we value quiet & craft, the gaze into nature, the deft image, the startling leap, meditative consciousness—and great use of language. We honor and crave all of those qualities-in art-and in one another.

Send us your good stuff. E-mail submissions to weisnerken@fhda.edu. Then if we publish your work, join us at WORKS/ San Jose in fall to read at our publication celebration. Also, submit to annual Red Wheelbarrow Poetry Prize, redwheelbarrow.submittable.com/submit. (2019 Contest Judge: Marilyn Chin)

Founded by Catherine Esposito Prescott and Jen Karetnick, SWWIM Every Day publishes one poem every weekday from women and women-identifying/femme-presenting writers of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, orientations, expressions and experience (emerging to internationally acclaimed). Poems are also delivered to in-boxes via subscription. The editors enjoy everything from prose poems to free verse to prosody; however, the digital platform excludes formatting some highly visual or extremely experimental pieces.

We welcome poems on a variety of themes or subjects. We especially like to see work that, despite its excellence, has been overlooked or excluded by the patriarchy. SWWIM stands for Supporting Women Writers in Miami, where we run a reading series, but we publish writers from all over the world. We nominate for all award anthologies and prizes. Subscribe for a poem delivered to your in-box every weekday to get a sense of our aesthetic and follow/like us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @swwimmiami where we re-post all the work and announce fee-free submission periods.

We like the experimental as well as the accessible; we love prose poems and erasures, but also sonnets and sestinas. Many people associate chapbooks with only poetry, but we're very interested in flash fiction, "literary" essays (broadly defined), memoir, novelettes/a long short story, lyric essays, and manuscripts that blend all kinds of genres together. And we love emerging writers, offering a concurrent chapbook contest just for folks who have yet to publish a chap/book, to make sure there's room for their writing in this often-competitive publishing landscape.

We are often surprised by what manuscripts we are most drawn to. We like to produce a range of different titles, and are often excited when we receive something that's a bit different in style or genre or theme than the books we already sell. We prefer the work to be thematically linked in some way.
