Pattern Recognition publishes well-written short fiction, non-fiction, poetry and comics. Experimentation is always welcome.

We are particularly interested in compositions conceived from an ‘alternative’ Gen-X perspective. Just imagine that the North America of 1989 through 1995 never ended, the Spice Girls and the Internet never happened, and Justine Bieber was never even born. Copies of Pattern Recognition Nos 1 through 5 are available from Amazon.com.

We at Variety Pack try to live up to our namesake! A bedrock of diverse voices, expressing a variety of arts & letters. We are open to both genre and literary. We have an aesthetic, but it's a broad atlas rather than a narrow stream!

Please read our guidelines carefully! Read previous issues, but also feel free to send us something that we haven't published yet. Note* Reading periods will be subject to change. As of next month, we will be reading for our fifth issue!

I've been a poet forever, with a chapbook published by Dancing Girl Press and 2 full length manuscripts making the rounds. I have been branching out lately into visual poetry (haven't shown anyone yet!) and into fiction -- thus far I've stuck with short speculative/horror fiction. I'd love to write personal and/or lyric essays but I just never seem to finish them for some reason! 

I'm not sure what I'm looking for in a writing group! I'd like to see what this platform has to offer and then I'll edit :)

I'm a Spanish–English literary translator with a particular affinity for creative nonfiction from Latin America; I've worked on a wide range of texts including books by Ricardo Piglia and Hebe Uhart. I've also begun writing my own fiction and essays, as well as more experimental hybrid texts involving photography, and am hoping to find a community of writers with similar aspirations to trade ideas and encouragement.

P.S. I love editing and am happy to provide extensive feedback and line edits on other writers' work.

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 A typical issue of CNF contains at least one essay by a previously unpublished writer.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.
