As a startup, we began with word of mouth and the reach of new media. Both editors have been teaching at the City University of New York for over a decade, and see our influence inflected by the work of our colleagues at the university—as diverse a constituency as can be imagined—as well as by our students themselves, some of whom have published with us. We are interested in writers from Borges to Lafcadio Hearn to Esmeralda Santiago, Ariel Dorfman to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to you, threading a diaspora of difference.

So far, a majority of writers we've published have been first-time writers, in keeping with our editorial mission.

Please see our complete editorial statement here: http://www.flatbushreview.com/editorial-statement.html. We welcome all arts and approaches, and strive to be as inclusive and diverse in our approaches as the words linked through our namesake avenue in Brooklyn, although we are not limited to that physical landscape. It's a Coney Island of the mind, after all.

See our editorial focus, and look over our online issues at flabushreview.com. We're open to anything, not bounded by the literal geography of Brooklyn but by the conceptual complexity represented by its internal artery, Flatbush Avenue. Each issue has a kind of theme, always loosely and imaginatively interpreted, or ignored altogether (although it might inform our decision-making on a particular issue, and we will always consider all submissions for future issues). The point is to be as searching and challenging, reflective and reaching as possible, connecting worlds, geographies, topographies of the mind, spirit, and body as widely as we can, with that O'Haraean grace to live as variously as possible. We want to open dialogues, not foreclose possibilities.

Night Picnic is a bilingual journal of literature and art which publishes work in both English and Russian. We translate our authors' work into Russian. We accept novels, novellas, plays, short and flash stories, fairytales for adults, poetry, interviews, essays (including popular science essays), letters to the editors, and artwork. 

We encourage authors to submit all that is strange, dark, jubilant, complex, confusing, scary, mystical, and multidimensional. We do NOT publish memoirs, heavy science fiction, political essays, and pornography. We do NOT publish manuscripts with chauvinistic and fascistic tendencies. You must be at least 18 years old to submit.

Inkwell Journal, a yearly anthology published through the MFA program at Manhattanville College, seeks submissions in English of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction/memoir, graphic novel/memoir excerpts, visual art, and genre-blurring work, as well as translations. We are interested in both established and new voices, including voices that have been historically under-represented. 

Send us your best work! We emerged from a creative writing program that found its community in artists from all disciplines, from literary fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction to dramatic arts to graphic storytelling. If it works on the page, we may just publish it.

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.
