Another New Calligraphy's online journal publishes short works connected in its exploration of conflict, a term open to interpretation though ever present in these increasingly challenging times.

As in ANC's other endeavors, Impossible Task is always on the lookout for further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy and Impossible Task as a home for their work.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work exploring the human experience, our internal worlds, and life among others; these complex systems are often clearest in our slightest moments.

Another New Calligraphy has published printed works since 2009. Commonalities include mental health, identity, culture, ecology, and personal reflection. Please familiarize yourself with recent projects for a general sense of these themes and their past expression.

Another New Calligraphy has enjoyed the quiet thrill of making and sharing since 2009. ANC guides writers and musicians in the realization of their work via the production of quality books and musics; the online journal Impossible Task showcases additional creative achievements.

Another New Calligraphy hopes to deliver small acts of wonder while facilitating an appreciation of unique experiences and perspectives. Our catalog strives to showcase diverse voices while honoring the stories they tell and the communities they represent.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work exploring the human experience, our internal worlds, and life among others; these complex systems are often clearest in our slightest moments. Please familiarize yourself with recent projects for a general sense of these themes and their past expression.

While the catalog's niche may seem primarily poetic, other modes of expression are more than welcome. The press is always on the lookout for more music and nonfiction, as well as further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy as a home for their work.

The Museum of Americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.

We seek work that engages or repurposes America's complex cultural history—original & unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, interviews, music, photography, & art. Give us fiction that dramatizes old folk songs or steals their characters. Give us love poetry with language cribbed from The Federalist Papers. Recent features: fiction on the 2008 financial crisis via Bartleby the Scrivener; essay on the family legacy of tomato-growing.

What Are Birds? is a literary journal looking for work that enthralls us. We are especially excited about hybrid work that crosses genre boundaries or exists outside of genre altogether. We understand the dire need for representation and diversity and strive to be changing the trends in publishing. We strongly encourage queer, trans, nonbinary, POC, femme, neurodivergent, disabled, (and any other writers who lack representation) to submit to our journal.

The Nasiona is a volunteer-led nonfiction storytelling organization that amplifies the marginalized, undervalued, overlooked, silenced, and forgotten, as well as stories that glimpse into foreign, at times extraordinary, worlds.

Be familiar with our content and submit pieces that fit what we're about. Though we are a nonficiton magazine, we lean toward creative nonfiction, narrative nonfiction, and nonfiction poetry. We try to steer away from position essays that try to persuade the reader to take a side on an issue. Instead, we look to disclose new worlds through the lens of personal experiences.

Our fiction must have a female protagonist. The writing must be engaging with a unique approach to storytelling and a distinctive authorial voice and style. We want works that explore realistic yet fascinating women tackling universal themes and subjects on a human level or taking an amusing stroll through our crazy world. Our nonfiction interests include feminism, history, nature, environment, social issues, biographies, autobiography, memoir, archaeology, anthropology, multicultural, spiritual, literary criticism, and women’s and gender studies. All from a female perspective.

We are very selective, so take the time to read our author guidelines and look at our most recent books to get an idea of what we're currently collecting. We’re currently interested in fiction that is entertaining, funny, quirky that can touch on serious issues and yet written in a more positive style. Show your writing sense of humor or sly wit.

We’re also actively seeking nonfiction by women, about women, and/or from a female perspective, including biography, historical, the arts, the sciences, nature and nature guides, feminism, cooking, gardening, travel and travel guides, ecology, politics, how-to, and sports.
