Longship Press publishes the literary journal Nostos once each year. Through Nostos, we publish poetry, short fiction, and art usually on a theme. We hope to print several pieces by any one author in order to offer readers a sample of an author's voice, style, point of view, etc. Additionally, we publish chapbooks and full poetry collections by individual authors, including Meryl Natchez, Lisa Rappoport, David Rollison, and Terry Lucas. 

Check the website www.longshippress.com for information regarding solicitations. Check the theme description especially.

Representative Authors: 

B. H. Fairchild, Louise Glück, Robert Hass, Javier Zamora, Rebecca Foust, James Tipton, Troy Jollimore, Meryl Natchez

Fecund highlights exceptional works of new abundance. The magazine is a medium through which writers and visual artists are exquisitely showcased and paid for their work. Fecund publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, theory, criticism, fashion writing, and visual art via interdisciplinary media (text, audio, video, new media).

Although we don’t conform to one aesthetic, we respond to work that challenges traditional forms or embraces liminality.

"I decided some years ago that I wanted to create a space for people taking on the struggle, a venue to give those writers and artists a truly fair shot at publication and the chance to be seen, read, and recognized—no connections, no solicitations, and only blind reading. Here, the quality of work is all that matters, not who you know or where you come from or what you've already accomplished. A fair chance and an open hand for everyone—the underdogs, the in-betweeners, and the already established." —Jonathan Starke, Editor
