We wanted to create a literary journal that, from the outset, selected only the best of up and coming poets, artists and writers. In an online market flooded with literary journals of all kinds, we realised something: it's been a long time since any of us read a journal that contained pieces which made us wish we'd written it, where not all the poets sounded the same, where there weren't just one or two decent poems and the rest were filler but hosted a succession of decent, skilled poems one after the other like a series of bangs in the distance.
We read submissions all year round. If you miss a deadline, your work will automatically be considered for the next issue. Our response times vary but it is generally about six weeks.
Please only submit ONCE per issue. If you are not accepted for publication, wait until we are reading for the subsequent issue. It helps us with backlog and we will very much appreciate you for it! A short, professional cover letter is appreciated with 50-100 word third person bio. Do not double space (format your submissions as you would see them formatted in a book, for example) and punctuation is always a good thing.
Cordella seeks to record and share the creative voices of women from all walks of life, exploring the ways that our spirit and sense of self is engaged with our physical place and daily experiences. We honor the diversity of women's spirituality, and recognize that the edification of a woman's spiritual life brings healing to our earth, to our families and communities, and to ourselves.
Not Your Mothers Breast Milk is an art blog dedicated to sharing stories about the human experience, connecting with one another, and giving artists an outlet to express their struggles and successes on this journey through life.
We're looking for something that makes us feel. It can make us feel joy, sadness, anger, silliness, etc, etc. Just make us feel something.
Have a piece that you love that maybe needs a little more work? Send it in! Our editing team will look it over and give you feedback about how you could make it stronger! When submitting, put "Tweak" in the subject line to let us know you want feedback on it!
Bridge Ink focuses on young adult creative writers, ages 13 to 18. All genres are accepted with a focus on poetry.
Our editors yearn to see something different, to learn from a piece of work, or to discover a new point of view. We are looking for young, honest voices daring enough to share those stories. How can a poem reveal an observation, emotion, or experience in a new or unique way? How can a story change a reader’s way of thinking? We want stories that open our minds to new possibilities.
