We share work that stems from a sense of wonder, delight in experiment, and concern for humanity, and believe that a publication so informed acts as a cultural balm against the literal-minded, commercially-driven objectives of modern media.

We want authors compelled to write by the significance of their own experience and questions. Our writers have things they can't keep quiet about. We believe that significant writers work very hard whatever their circumstances and whatever their educations. Upper Hand is not prejudiced in favor of authors with credentials in writing. We are eclectic and personal in approach. We do not automatically exclude topics and voices that we haven't encountered before.

Query before submitting if you have any questions about us. We do not welcome literary agents. We intend that the nominal $10 fee and exclusive submission policy will indicate to us that you have studied this press and have a serious interest in what we offer. Upper Hand is a one-person press. Time permits the publisher to invest only in focused and committed submissions. Books with visual content must be unique and of extraordinary creativity. Submit with ideas about the market for your book.

The Roanoke Review was founded in 1967 by Pulitzer prize-winning poet Henry Taylor at Roanoke College, where it remains to this day. For the past fifty years, the Review has promoted both established writers and new voices. We seek to be an accessible read, intent on publishing down-to-earth writers with a sense of place, a sense of language, and—perhaps most importantly—a sense of humor.

Love what you send us. We hope we will, too.

What a Literary Magazine is Supposed to be About: The Writers, Artists and Above All, YOUR Voice!We strongly, passionately believe that instead of being taught what to think, we should be teaching each other how to think, and also be taught how to think. Only then will we discover the capabilities of our own individual cognitive abilities. It’s another step toward shattering the mold. WRITE WHAT YOU WRITE, not what you think we want you to write.

What we WON’T TOLERATE or ACCEPT:-Racism -Misogyny -Vulgarity for vulgarity’s sake (i.e., think: an endless, nonsensical urban dictionary. No, no and no.) -Deeply disturbing ideals and/or fantasies *Important thing to note here: This is not to say in any way, shape or form that we won’t accept something dark, edgy, thought-provoking or writing containing violence or profanities–there’s a line, however. You’ll know when you’ve crossed it. As for concepts or stories about the existence of racism and misogyny, that’s different. I mean that I won’t accept or tolerate literature perpetuating or stating overt racist ideals or sexism.

Raising Mothers was founded as a response to the lack of literary writing focused on mothers of color or parents raising children of color. Raising Mothers is a literary magazine for mothers by mother writers, publishing personal essays, in-depth interviews and creative writing, honoring both parenting and personhood.

I am looking for original, previously unpublished prose or poetry that explores life and in turn how that affects us as mothers and people. Work is accepted on an ongoing basis and I try to respond as quickly as possible. Writing should be strong and engaging without being academic in tone. I also accept fiction under 1,000 words and excerpts of larger works.
