A Velvet Giant is a collective space for work that exists outside the boundaries of genre. We recognize that it can feel impossible to talk about writing without categorizing it. When we say genreless, we don’t mean apolitical. Writing that resists binary categories such as fiction/nonfiction or poetry/prose is inherently queer and inherently political. We want writing that exists in the world, that resists tradition and expectations to build towards new ways of creating, feeling, and being.

We love ambiguity: flash pieces, found pieces, cross-genre experiments, the "poem" that thinks it might be a story, the "story" that thinks it might be a poem. Retellings and reimaginings. Works that chips away at institutional structures. Work that breaks everything down so that it can build.

TVBR publishes poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, photography, and visual art that memorably express what it means to be human. Our editorial focus is on authentic voices and evocative images. We seek work that haunts us. The best way to learn what we seek in manuscripts is to read our current on-line issues, as well as our hard copy back issues. We publish both established and emerging writers. We approach all submissions with respect. We expect writers to get to know our work before approaching us.

We accept online submissions only. Be a careful reader. Study the markets and give them the thoughtful attention you seek for your own work. Read your work out loud, maybe even record it to catch the weak spots before sending it out.

Creative Nonfiction draws heavily from unsolicited submissions. Our editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines, and it’s been our privilege to work with many fine writers early in their careers. A typical issue of CNF contains at least one essay by a previously unpublished writer. We’re open to all types of creative nonfiction, from immersion reportage to personal essay to memoir.

Please do send work that blends style with substance, and reaches beyond the personal to tell us something new about the world. We're drawn to stories that balance a strong narrative (i.e. something happens) with a teaching or reflective element (i.e. the something that happens matters for some reason). Please do include your complete contact information and keep us informed of the status of simultaneous submissions. Please don't send poetry.

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.

We are looking for well written, polished work. We accept all genres, so long as they address more than the genre itself. We are of the belief that there is no 'right' way to write a story. Be creative. Rethink what it means to tell a story. Shape is just as important as words. Do not want: Pornography, gratuitous violence, vampires, werewolves, Fan Fiction, political agendas, slice-of-life/autobiography, children's stories, etc.

Proofread your work. Have others read your work. Then read it again.
