Diode Editions is looking for poetry that excites and energizes, that uses language that crackles and sparks. We’re looking for poetry from all points on the arc, from formal to experimental (no light verse or erotic poetry, please). Simultaneous submissions are welcomed, but please notify us if they're accepted elsewhere. Diode does not accept previously published work. Submissions are welcome during contest periods. Check our website for contest dates. www.diodeeditions.com
The most recent publications from Barefoot Muse Press are Kathleen McClung's Temporary Kin, Tiel Aisha Ansari's Country Well-Known as an Old Nightmare's Stable and Anna M. Evans's The Quarantina Chronicles. We pride ourselves on picking books not for their authors' name value, or for their saleability, but for the opportunity to bring work we love to the page.
We do recommend that you read one of our most recent publications to get a feel for what we prefer.
The Literary House Press is the publishing arm of the Rose O’Neill Literary House at Washington College. We publish writers of national reputation and are particularly invested in supporting the work of women, LGBTQIA authors, and writers of color. During odd years, LHP publishes a limited-edition, letterpress book by an emerging or established author with ties to Maryland. During even years, LHP releases a trade paperback anthology featuring contemporary American poets. The Literary House Press is also home to Cherry Tree: A National Literary Journal @ Washington College.
We do NOT read unsolicited manuscripts and submissions for books.
Theme: GREEN. Deadline: 10th February 2020. Here Comes Everyone (HCE) is a literary magazine of poetry, fiction, articles & artwork based around topical & interesting themes. We aim to provide innovative content & an accessible platform for readers & contributors.
Please read our submissions guidelines for full details. Submissions must be sent via the form on our website - work submitted to email addresses will not be accepted. We encourage bold/striking interpretations of the theme (GREEN); if the link isn’t clear, include a few lines in your bio/at the start to provide context.
We are looking for well written, polished work. We accept all genres, so long as they address more than the genre itself. We are of the belief that there is no 'right' way to write a story. Be creative. Rethink what it means to tell a story. Shape is just as important as words. Do not want: Pornography, gratuitous violence, vampires, werewolves, Fan Fiction, political agendas, slice-of-life/autobiography, children's stories, etc.
Proofread your work. Have others read your work. Then read it again.
The issues are cohesive; the whole of the magazine is comprehensive.
Submit anything, from new to almost-forgotten, previously published if noted in an email, or rejected for whatever reason from other venues. I do work with talented writers if a theme or plot or character can be drawn out and refined for publication in Wood Coin. The magazine is uncensored as of January 2018, yet extreme literary or artistic stunts need to coincide with US obscenity laws.
Jacar Press is a Community Active press publishing fine poetry from Pulitzer Prize winners to poets not yet known. Proceeds from all our publications will go to support progressive programs and organizations working to create positive change in their communities. We also sponsor free and low-cost community workshops and an annual Gathering of Poets that has featured writers like Marilyn Nelson, Li-Young Lee, etc.
Query first. If not entering a contest, your best time to submit is one month before or one month after contest deadlines.
