We publish Home Tips on most weeks, and occasional related items on our secondary blog.
Circulation: 
1,000 to 2,500

We accept essays of 250 words or less, each focused on one task or series of related tasks as executed by people we’ve lost to death but still clearly see living. Each of these micro-essays can be thought of as an entry into a book on living well, or efficiently, or at the very least with particular methods.

1. Does your story include a home tip? We focus on giving a home tip that someone could really try. How would this essay make someone's home better, or cause someone to reflect on the nature of home? 2. Is it written for the reader to read, or still feels like it is written for the writer to write? This is one reason we feel that conveying a home tip is important. It puts you, the writer, in the reader's shoes. 3. Does it let the dead speak? We welcome your presence and perspective in the essay. But the most important person here is the one you lost, and we'd like to meet that person through their voice and presence, how they peeled eggs or folded clothes or played records. Show us what they did, and how they did it.

We obey no genre and take anything from limericks to fantasy to genres yet invented. Our key desires are originality, accessibility and quality. We like work with a point, something to say or some sort of inner majic that gives greater meaning to the pretty words and thrilling plots. That said, we're not really sure what we’re looking for until we've seen it, so give us a try. Published online monthly, Red Fez Publications features poetry and prose outside of the narrow, academic stream. Red Fez is committed to bringing light to underground and under-recognized writers and writing.

Please do NOT send snail mail submissions. Use the submission form on the website. Read the guidelines and past issues to get a feel for what we like.

Cobalt is a quarterly literary magazine published online. We also publish an annual print issue, and will be rolling out an all-baseball issue in July 2013. Each issue will feature fiction, non-fiction and poetry of the highest caliber, as well as interviews with some of the most influential writers in the literary community. We seek to publish quality creative work and promote the literary arts, as well as those who celebrate them.

Generally, we love the "wow" factor. If your work leaves a lasting impression with the genre editor, you've got a good shot. We like things that grip the edge of traditional forms. Experimental is fine, but there should be a focus - something that holds it all together. We are very competitive, so you should be sending your best work. Snail mail submissions are not recommended, as our editors only meet a few times between each issue. Online submissions are encouraged.

Spry is a literary journal that features undiscovered and established writers’ concise, experimental, hybrid, modern, vintage or just plain vulnerable writing. This is a place for people who excel at taking risks, who thrive under pressure—for people whose words and rhythms are spry.

Cordite Poetry Review is a quarterly Australian journal of poetry and its criticism. International authors are most welcome. Each issue is themed (broadly), so please be sure to look at our submissions page.

Cordite Scholarly is a fully refereed section of the journal, dedicated to research.

We are interested in all formats of poetry. Just because Word can centre a poem in your document, doesn't mean it should. Else, we have no profound DOs and DON'Ts. Each of our issues is guest-edited by a different poet. Submissions are always read blind.

Mission: To publish the best writing, thought and information about work, or lack thereof, while providing a forum for readership to connect and respond.

WORK is dedicated to celebrating the daily grind: white collar, blue collar, pink collar, sex work, food service, freelancing and more.

WORK has an intentionally bland format, so that it can be enjoyed while you’re still on the clock. WORK is subversive, so you can be subversive at work.

Please be previously unpublished. Feel free to submit WORD or RTF docs via WORK's online submission form. If submitting via email, please use the word submission in the subject line. Please attach .doc format. No PDFs.
