The Albion Review is a national literary journal based out of Albion College in Michigan. Published annually since 2004, The Review features works of short fiction, poetry, essays, and visual art. The Review strives to showcase the work of emerging undergraduate talents.
We publish a wide range of work. We have an eye for craft. We want work that is well written, deliberate, and has something to say. Send us your best finished work. Please read and follow our submission guidelines. Note that we read blind to avoid bias - do not put your name anywhere other than the cover letter.
We’ll look at any genre. We like serious, comic, lighthearted, dark, emotional, and acerbic. The important factor for us is that the work use story, characters, emotions, and other fundamental elements of storytelling to think, to ask questions, to move the mind forward.
Read the stories we've published. Don't include your name within the body of your manuscript.
Diagram is an electronic journal of text and art. As our name indicates, we're interested in representations. In naming. In indicating. In schematics. In the labelling and taxonomy of things. In poems that masquerade as stories; in stories that disguise themselves as indices or obituaries.
Cover letters preferred. Electronic submissions strongly preferred.
Borrowed Solace is published twice yearly and includes creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and art. Since the beginning, we at Borrowed Solace have committed to reading each and every submission and letting the words of both established and emerging writers spew forth into the world.
Read the submissions guidelines and submit your absolute best work to us! Keep an eye out on our blog to periodically see tips from the editors in each genre.
all the sins is a quarterly digital magazine that encourages writers and artists to have courage and to sin against staid storytelling. Break rules, push boundaries and tell new stories in new ways. Just tell a good story. It was conceived as a blend of visual, digital and written art that takes storytelling to new limits, asks questions and explores the worlds in which art is made. Responses, challenges and reinventions welcome. We also publish regular features on arts-related topics and encourage submissions for these.
We are particularly interested in work that uses the internet and digital media for the opportunities they present. By 'sinful' we mean art that represents voices and stories that have not traditionally been represented in literary arts magazines - we don't mean erotica, though sex may have a role to play in a given work.
Slant publishes well-crafted work (formal or free verse) from all parts of the U.S. and beyond. While open to experimentation, its editorial readers generally prefer plainsong: concrete, resonant, accessible poems written by humans for other humans.
Send up to 5 poems of moderate length, typed, name (and e-mail if available) at the top of each page. No single haiku or translations. No multiple submissions. No previously published poems. Please include SASE if submitting by post.
No Tokens is a biannually published journal celebrating work that is felt in the spine. We are run entirely by women and non-binary individuals, dedicated to featuring the words and artwork of all voices of the past, present, and future. We are here to keep stories alive. We are here to make a physical object to hold in your hands. We are paying attention.
We want authors compelled to write by the significance of their own experience and questions. We want authors who are interested in the sentence, how it's made, where it goes, and what it builds.
We are eclectic and personal in approach. We do not automatically exclude topics and voices that we haven't encountered before.
Individuals may query before submitting. We do not invite agented submissions.
We hope that the nominal $10 fee and exclusive submission policy will encourage writers to choose us as carefully. Our small size makes us particularly appreciative of well-focused submissions.
We are not in general interested in illustrated books. Please query before sending one.
Submit with focused ideas about the readership for your book.
