Pine Hills Review publishes artful, honest, and compelling work of new and established writers, from fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to visual art, interviews, and experimental, cross-genre work.
Send your best work, of course. More specifically, send work that are the outcasts in your own work, that other places won't publish.
We host writing contests in fiction and poetry and welcome international submissions. We juxtapose tradition with experiment, the up-and-comer with the established writer, and create a new dialogue.

Call + Response is a literary and arts journal providing a creative hub for new and emerging artists of color. We aim to introduce fresh and creative voices to the world through diverse and original art, poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews.
This journal is a celebration and an exploration made by POC, for POC.
This is a safe place for creatives to be, well, creative. But this is also a hate-free zone. Although we will accept political and mature work with topics like sexuality, gender identity, racism, colorism, sexism, reproductive rights, etc. We will not accept work that explicitly details rape, murder and/or bodily or self-harm.
Foglifter is a biannual compendium of the most dynamic, urgent queer writing today. It’s a spacewhere queer writers celebrate, mourn, rage, and embrace.
Foglifter welcomes daring and thoughtful queer work, in all forms, and we are especially interested in cross-genre, intersectional, marginal, and transgressive work. We want the pieces that challenged you as a writer, what you poured yourself into and risked the most to make. But we also want your tenderest, gentlest work, what you hold closest to your heart. Whatever you’re working on now that’s keeping you alive and writing, Foglifter wants to read it.
We are a platform for QTIBIPoC youth (queer, trans & intersex Black, Indigenous & persons of color), therefore we only publish work by youth and people in the QTIBIPoC community. When we say youth, we mean ages 14–28 more or less. So, with that said, we respectfully ask that you do not submit if you are not part of those three communities.
Please read our submissions guidelines carefully! Happy submitting. Can't wait to read your work!
Brooklyn Arts Press (BAP) is a literary press devoted to publishing chapbooks and full-length collections of poetry, novels, lyrical short fiction, and art monographs by emerging artists. We believe we serve our community best by publishing great works of varying aesthetics side by side, subverting the notion that writers & artists exist in vacuums, apart from the culture in which they reside and outside the realm & understanding of other camps & aesthetics.
We receive 800 manuscripts a year, many of them of high quality, & publish maybe 1% of those submissions. Competition is steep, so send us your very best work.
We are publishers of literature. Unconfined by the limitations of bigger publishing houses, Bloomsday gets to be more nimble and take greater risks bringing more diverse voices to more diverse readership. Bloomsday readers want books that change us, reorder our thinking, & make us feel hopeful about what good literature can accomplish in the world.
We publish bold books.
We publish books for readers who want to be in cahoots.
With books that say, “Ssshhh, settle down. Listen carefully. I have something to say.”
Waxwing is a literary journal promoting the tremendous cultural diversity of contemporary American literature, alongside international voices in translation. We believe that American voices are, at their cores, both multicultural and multinational, and so the editors’ mission is to include American writers from all cultural identities — in terms of race, ethnicity, indigenous tribe, gender, class, sexuality, age, education, ability, language, religion, and region — alongside international voices, published bilingually.
Waxwing publishes poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, reviews, art, and music, as well as international literature in translation. Waxwing currently accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translations; all other content is solicited.
Due to the high number of submissions and Submittable’s fees for magazines, Waxwing caps submissions at 300/month—submitting at the beginning of the month improves your chances of catching us before we hit the limit. If you are unable to submit due to closure, please come back and submit the next month.
