Mount Island is dedicated to supporting rural LGBTQ and POC writers and artists, whether rural by birth or at heart. We seek:

  • Prose and poems that buck the standard. Any genre, whether traditional or invented.
  • Art that liberates vision. Any medium, whatever can be displayed digitally.
  • Interviews, reviews, and articles that follow passion and further connection.

Pretty Owl Poetry is a feminist quarterly journal that publishes the visual arts, traditional and nontraditional forms, fiction masquerading as poetry, and work that does not snugly fit into a specific genre, all with a lyrical quality. We’re especially interested in work centered around the bodily experiences of womxn, nonbinary, and trans folx. We’re committed to publishing underrepresented and marginalized voices and encourage submission from such artists.

The Saranac Review is committed to dissolving boundaries of all kinds, seeking to publish a diverse array of emerging and established writers from the United States, Canada and the rest of the world. The journal strives to be a textual clearing in which a space is opened for literary cross-pollination. We aim to publish diverse voices, a literal "cluster of stars," an illumination of the Iroquois roots of our namesake, the word, Saranac.

Our editorial scope is eclectic, and open to all styles, but we are looking for work that is literary, engaging, well crafted and has resonance. We are not interested in genre fiction (e.g. Sci fiction; horror, etc.) or light verse. We suggest that any writer interested in submitting work read a copy of the journal. Buy a digital copy for $4.95 from our website or obtain a sample issue for $5.95. The Saranac Review is an annual so there is a relatively long time between acceptance and publication.

MORIA is a national online literary magazine with an all-student editorial board, based at Woodbury University in greater Los Angeles. We accept poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from emerging and established writers in the United States and across the world. We publish twice-a-year, in the late fall and late spring.

While we accept all styles — including experimental, hybrid, and conventional forms — we aren’t interested in submissions of light verse, genre fiction, and any piece that references gratuitous violence or exploitative sexual imagery. We’re committed to publishing a diverse range of poets and writers. In our debut issue (2017), 73% of our authors were women and 24% were writers of color. We also published pieces from writers in their 20s to writers in their 70s — and every decade in between. We welcome work from traditionally under-represented groups, including women writers, indigenous writers, writers of color, writers who identify as LGBTQ, and writers with disabilities.

WomenArts Quarterly Journal (WAQ), an initiative of Women in the Arts, aspires to nurture, provide support, and challenge women-identified artists of all cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, and abilities in their role in the arts and seeks to heighten the awareness and understanding of the achievements of women creators, by providing audiences with historical and contemporary examples of the work of women writers, composers, and artists.

WAQ provides readers with contemporary examples of the work of women-identified creators, and therefore, seeks submissions by women-identified creators only. We do not wish to publish work that exclusively addresses the experience or concept of womanhood. Furthermore, it is not necessary for the subject matter of work submitted to pertain to womanhood at all.

Vagabonds is a literary journal that is published twice a year. We harbor the mad ones. People who are dedicated to their work to the point that they become misunderstood, or seen as a hot mess of crazy. Our journal does not seek to break boundaries, we want to break boundaries and go farther. We want the shameless—the deep dark, cigarettes and dirty words combo. Although there is not a set theme of what we’re looking for, we often look at slice-of-life works.
