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.

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.

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.
