Night Picnic is a bilingual journal of literature and art which publishes work in both English and Russian. We translate our authors' work into Russian. We accept novels, novellas, plays, short and flash stories, fairytales for adults, poetry, interviews, essays (including popular science essays), letters to the editors, and artwork. 

We encourage authors to submit all that is strange, dark, jubilant, complex, confusing, scary, mystical, and multidimensional. We do NOT publish memoirs, heavy science fiction, political essays, and pornography. We do NOT publish manuscripts with chauvinistic and fascistic tendencies. You must be at least 18 years old to submit.

Exposition Review is an independent, multi-genre literary journal that publishes narratives by new, emerging, and established writers in the genres of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, stage & screen, experimental, art & photography, and comics.

 

Read and follow all our submission guidelines!

We like to be surprised; we like writing that transports us with strong voices and a sense of place. We like work that’s thoughtful and cathartic, that embraces conflict and isn’t afraid to take risks. We love pieces that blur genre boundaries.

We seek to publish—in paper and ink—the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved." 

We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”

Foundlings Press is a highly selective publisher of full-length works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and certain other uncategorizable material. Under our imprint The Public Books we publish full-length nonfiction works of historical, political, cultural, economic, and often local interest. The Press also produces a biannual print poetry magazine. We will accept unsolicited submissions during two four-week periods each year. Foundlings hosts an annual artist residency and poetry chapbook publication contest, which pairs a winning poet with a pre-selected guest book artist.

Fterota Logia aims to encapsulate the essence of young adult literature, while also providing a space for open discussion and theorizing of the genre.

Our mission is to create a forum where new works of young adult fiction will be celebrated.

We want new authors and voices, those who love YA and those who hate it, those who are young – in body or in spirit – and those who have an intimate connection and understanding of young adult literature. We aim to fill our journal with insightful interviews, feature columns, and more.

We will accept any and all types of submissions – the beauty of living in a digital world is that we have unlimited digital space! – and will give each submission equal consideration. Submission window open from September 1st to November 30th. 

We are dedicated to working with authors to help them reach their full potential – we will not turn pieces away without including our thoughts, edits and suggestions. We want every author, every child who puts pen to paper or adult who wants to indulge their creativity, to learn and grow.

Madcap Review is a semiannual online journal of art and literature. As our name indicates, we embrace the impulsive, the reckless, and the lively, but we also have great respect for form and restraint. Founded in 2014 by a group of fiction writers, poets, and artists, Madcap is a platform for any and all forms of writing and art. We have no genre restrictions because we believe that great writing isn’t easily categorized.

Send us work you’re proud of, and please read the submission guidelines.

Cagibi is invested in sharing the universal human experiences to be found in works of prose and poetry set within places unfamiliar to readers; thus, our expressed interest in international—or world—literature, and works in translation. Cagibi is versatile in its purpose and mission to readers and writers. The journal concerns literature in which character conflict, ultimately story, is tied to place.

Call + Response is a literary and arts journal providing a creative hub for new and emerging artists of color. We aim to introduce fresh and creative voices to the world through diverse and original art, poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews.

This journal is a celebration and an exploration made by POC, for POC.

This is a safe place for creatives to be, well, creative. But this is also a hate-free zone. Although we will accept political and mature work with topics like sexuality, gender identity, racism, colorism, sexism, reproductive rights, etc. We will not accept work that explicitly details rape, murder and/or bodily or self-harm.
