Cobalt is a quarterly literary magazine published online. We also publish an annual print issue, and will be rolling out an all-baseball issue in July 2013. Each issue will feature fiction, non-fiction and poetry of the highest caliber, as well as interviews with some of the most influential writers in the literary community. We seek to publish quality creative work and promote the literary arts, as well as those who celebrate them.

Generally, we love the "wow" factor. If your work leaves a lasting impression with the genre editor, you've got a good shot. We like things that grip the edge of traditional forms. Experimental is fine, but there should be a focus - something that holds it all together. We are very competitive, so you should be sending your best work. Snail mail submissions are not recommended, as our editors only meet a few times between each issue. Online submissions are encouraged.

Cordite Poetry Review is a quarterly Australian journal of poetry and its criticism. International authors are most welcome. Each issue is themed (broadly), so please be sure to look at our submissions page.

Cordite Scholarly is a fully refereed section of the journal, dedicated to research.

We are interested in all formats of poetry. Just because Word can centre a poem in your document, doesn't mean it should. Else, we have no profound DOs and DON'Ts. Each of our issues is guest-edited by a different poet. Submissions are always read blind.

Mission: To publish the best writing, thought and information about work, or lack thereof, while providing a forum for readership to connect and respond.

WORK is dedicated to celebrating the daily grind: white collar, blue collar, pink collar, sex work, food service, freelancing and more.

WORK has an intentionally bland format, so that it can be enjoyed while you’re still on the clock. WORK is subversive, so you can be subversive at work.

Please be previously unpublished. Feel free to submit WORD or RTF docs via WORK's online submission form. If submitting via email, please use the word submission in the subject line. Please attach .doc format. No PDFs.

How does one judge authenticity in the literary arts? Intuition. And, if Heidegger was correct in his assumption that language is the house of Being, intuition, not logic, is the impetus of art and authenticity. Before we can come to either, it seems, we must purge those definitions attached to us like artificial appendages in public school, through mass media, in the university. The purpose of Red Savina Review is to record the writer’s struggle to wrest themselves from the bizarre marketplace of modernity in the quest to claim authenticity and thereby take a stand on Being.

RSR is on the lookout for fresh, genuine voices that explore what it means to be human in the house of Being. It is our belief, and against the grain as of late, that individualism trumps groupthink and political correctness has often suppressed creative expression. We believe in the potential of Gen X, in concepts such as existential noir, depth, and spirit. RSR promotes original work from authentic voices. We like writing that challenges you, the writer: writing that drags you out of your comfort zone, writing that DARES you to let it have its say. Send us polished but evocative work.

Varies, but we encourage new writers to submit.

Angle poetry is acute, possibly oblique, but never obtuse.

Rhyme is fine, even if slant, and we incline towards metre.

Founded in 2011, Border Crossing is a literary and arts journal published by the Lake Superior State University Creative Writing Program. Uniquely situated on the border of the United States and Canada, we're committed to publishing the best work submitted by emerging and established writers on both sides of the border and abroad. We're especially interested in writing that crosses boundaries in genre or geography, and voices that aren't often heard in mainstream publications.

Linguistically and thoughtfully, it is the eldritch, the pithy, the electric, the gnostic, the visceral, the well-wrought, the purposefully experimental, and the expansive that are of interest to us. Irony is not of special interest. Popular currency is not of special interest. Cliché and expletives are usually anathema. We prefer the hard-fought and sincere to the ‘sexy’ and ‘edgy.’

We also sponsor the Prospero Prizes; OUR ALCHEMICAL VALENTINE; and VALUS' SIGIL for literature inspired by video games.

Challenge us with your vision.
