Spoonie Magazine publishes art, articles, audio, poetry, prose, video, and hybrid works by disabled, chronically ill, and/or neurodiverse individuals (or their loved ones) on related subject matters weekly in their online magazine. All work is considered regardless of the perspective with which it approaches these topics. Their goal is to promote the voices of, and provide a space for, disabled artists and authors in publishing and the arts.

We champion representation and honesty in the creative discussion of disability. Our mission is to share authentic experiences— as happy, sad, inspirational, or frustrating as they may be. These individuals face unique challenges, so we have created an equally unique place specifically for them.

Note that submissions sent from Feb—April and Aug—Oct are simultaneously considered for publication in our print literary journal, Spoonie Journal.

86 Logic is a quarterly magazine representing artists with roots in the hospitality industry. It is made up of a team of veteran bartenders, servers, and hosts who love discovering how art and hospitality intersect. Submissions are open to anyone who has worked in the industry—restaurants, bars, and hotels, to name a few. 

We pride ourselves on having an easy submission process. Unlike most publications, printed or otherwise, we have no restrictions on file type, submission size, or the type of work submitted. We feel this keeps us open to all printable genres. Although there is no requirement on topic or theme, we do have a soft spot for industry-related work. After submitting, please be patient; it can take up to four months for our tiny team to respond to a submission.
