Intima: A Journal of Narrative Medicine is a literary journal dedicated to promoting the theory and practice of narrative medicine, an interdisciplinary field that enhances healthcare through the effective communication, empathy and understanding between clinicians, caregivers and patients. Our name Intima has a specific resonance in the field: For us, narrative involves the intimate interface between people, who yield and gain from the experience of stories involving the clinical encounter.
Intima publishes two issues a year: Spring and Fall with periodic essay contests. Sign up for our notification email list for our 'call for submissions' announcements. We look forward to reviewing your work. http://www.theintima.org/contact Please review our Submissions Guidelines. https://www.theintima.org/submission-gui...
Thank you again for your interest in our journal.
New and emerging writers. We like stories that meander and explore the world around us. Stories that tend to blur the line between fiction and reality.
We also accept art submissions!
For lesbians, by lesbians! We would LOVE to see more lesbian fiction, flash fiction, ghost stories, poems about nature and gardens, mysteries, humour, fantasy, and more!
Don't self reject! We can't wait to read your work.
Tilted House Review is a biannual arts and literary journal made by hand in small batches in the small city of New Orleans. Through this outfit, we strive to cultivate a creative and communal unit from and for the city. And while the door is wide open for New Orleans’ minds, it remains open for the rest of the world’s. Everyone is encouraged to submit.
We like both experimental and traditional work. We like dark. Surprise turns, nuance, metaphor. We want poems we can smell. Fiction that sickens. Art that double-takes. We like hard-hitting endings. Polemics. Protest. Confession that isn’t like every other confession. Sonnets, American sonnets, sonnets all splintered. We like work that has its heart on its sleeve—and nothing on the nose. Crawl into our veins and sit there a while.
We aim to publish art and words for the future by artists and writers who believe they're carrying, on their hunched-over-computer shoulders, a pretty heavy yet very pretty burden—to offer us all a way into ourselves so that we may come back out with the wisdom required for positive change as individuals, and as a society. All accepted work will appear both online and in print.
We aren’t certain there is “good” and “bad” art—only honest and dishonest art… but we’ll get back to you on that. Suffice it to say, we really don’t want to be gatekeepers. We want to be a blank canvas.
Press Pause will never have a social media account. It will never promote itself (or get into online debates) on social media, so that the art that is shared can be appreciated within the embrace of a lovely now-uncommon silence.
Submitting to Press Pause will always be free.
We publish fiction, poetry, music, visual media, and otherwise in English, Català, Castellano, and Deutsch. We frequently publish work—or play—by writers and artists from outside the United States and actively seek more submissions by neurodivergent, BIPOC, women+, and LGBTQ+ writers, as well as their allies. Pieces concerned with ecological themes or inclusive of nonhuman species are welcome.
We strongly encourage those submitting to our journal to sample a few pieces before they do so, as what we publish is pointed and eclectic. It is worth reviewing the Submissions page on the website before reading the detailed submission guidelines found on Submittable. Authors with financial constraints may forego the submission fee by contacting us directly via the website Contact page.
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.
