The Letters Page literary journal is published by the University of Nottingham School of English, and edited by writer in residence, Professor Jon McGregor. We’re interested in exploring what letter writing means to people - and has meant since writing was invented - in their literary cultures and their personal lives. We’ll be publishing essays, memoir, fiction, travelogue, reportage, poetry, criticism, interviews… any creative form of writing, so long as it comes to us framed as a letter.

• The letter should be handwritten on a single side of A4 (or your local equivalent), and sent in the post, with a return address on the back of the envelope. • You may include illustrations. • Enclose contact details on a separate sheet. A transcript may be requested. • The letter should be addressed to a notional ‘reader’ (and should balance the tone of address between the ‘collective’ reader of a journal and the ‘individual’ reader of a forwarded letter); the letter should not address or refer to the editor. • The letter should include some reference to the time/place of its writing and/or sending. • Your submission should be postmarked with a date no later than the stated deadline for submissions.

The Lark firmly believes that the ubiquity of the internet is not a reason to accept diminished quality in publications or to skip supporting contributors. We seek to publish what’s risky, critical, musical, philosophical, playful, experimental, sexy, or deadly serious. Sometimes we publish the bells and blossoms, and sometimes we publish the dark underbelly. 

Above all, we seek to be moved. 

We recommend that you look through our previous issues to get a sense of the Lark. Our guidelines are left intentionally expansive, but we take craft seriously and are drawn to work that feels honest in some way.

Lantern Review aims to provide a virtual space in which to showcase Asian American poetry and to engage with issues relevant to its production and dissemination. We seek to publish expertly crafted work in a variety of forms and aesthetics, including traditional and experimental pieces, hybrid forms, multimedia work, and new translations. We welcome pieces from anglophone writers of all ethnic backgrounds whose work interests itself in critical questions relevant to the Asian diaspora in North America, as well as work created collaboratively in a community context.

We read during limited periods of approximately 2-3 months, and accept poetry submissions ONLY through our online form (not via e-mail). We are open to submissions from writers of all ethnic backgrounds. Your submission does not have to directly address a “big question” about Asian American identity; nor does it have to take place in America or Asia (in fact, we particularly like work that breaks expected notions of what “Asian American poetry” is or can be). However, please keep in mind that we are seeking to publish work that engages with critical questions directly relevant to our mission.

Mortar Magazine evolves the idea that writing can and should be incisive, coming in at the edges, doing that elusive something that makes us question motive, genre, meaning, or narrative itself.

While we accept any prose or poetry submissions, we have a soft spot in our hearts for of-the-moment writing, in the sense of experimental forms and new voices. 

We are very much a new publication and as such, we are flexible in terms of content and open-minded in terms of submissions. We hope to discover work that will define the magazine, not the other way around.

Hoot is a magazine on postcards. We publish stand-alone pieces of writing under 150 words, with art to match. The idea is that current, quality literature should be shareable, accessible, and that there is no reason why you can't read an excellent piece of literature in one sitting.

Postcards are small, so please don't go over the word limit. Also, one of the advantages of a postcard magazine is its shareability! So, please submit work that you could want hanging on a fridge (no brutal murder pieces, etc)

The Common is a print and digital literary journal published biannually, in the fall and spring. Inspired by the role of the town common, a public gathering place for the display and exchange of ideas, the Common seeks to deepen our individual and collective sense of place through bold, engaging literature and art. Issues of the Common include short stories, essays, poems, and images that embody a strong sense of place.

Please DO: Read issues of the Common before submitting; Send us your very best work; Make sure that place/location is significant in your piece before submitting. Please DO NOT: Submit conventional travel logs that simply recount travel experiences. We are looking for more thoughtful, reflective pieces in which place greatly informs the character(s)’/narrator(s)’ thoughts, decisions, perspective, etc.
