OVS Magazine was started in 2009 by Stephen and Ivy Page to give new and established artists and poets a place to publish their work in a respectable peer-critiqued journal. OVS Magazine is an online literary journal, with a print anthology annually, based in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, edited by staff and guest authors/artists.

 

Send us your most powerful work!  We do not pursue inspirational/religious work.  Otherwise, we are pretty open.

Fourth Genre is devoted to publishing notable, innovative work in literary (creative) nonfiction, and are especially looking to provide space to voices less seldom heard from in literary publications. We think of the genre as flexible, fluid, and expansive, and so we’re looking for essays in any variety–lyrical, familiar, personal, nature, environmental, travel, and especially graphic. We're especially interested in essays that reflect intersections of race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, dis/ability, among others. See the editor's note in issue 18.1 for more about this.

Please write for sample back issues in order to become familiar with the journal. We accept only previously unpublished work. Please go to fourthgenre.submittable.com.

Versal, the literary & arts journal out of Amsterdam, seeks work that is urgent, involved, and unexpected. A publication celebrating translocal intersections and cross-cultural dialogue, Versal is internationally renowned for the quality of work published by up-and-coming as well as established writers, and for its strong attention to design and production values. Versal has been featured many times in Poets & Writers Magazine, including being named among the "top indie innovators" (November/December 2010).

We especially encourage works from outside of the US, works that blend genre, works in translation, works from writers and artists of color, works from writers and artists with disabilities, and works from writers and artists of marginalized orientations, backgrounds, and gender identities.
