We want art that guts us with surgical precision. Make everything useful.
Each issue of COG is a curiously constructed curation offered up by the students of Cogswell College. COG's writers thrill with skillfully wrought and cohesive narratives; insight and intensity; imagery and attitude - alternating nimbly between closely examined moments, characters or nuances and larger human themes. COG is not a venue for student work; rather, as of March 2018, COG had received submissions from writers working in 24 countries beyond the U.S.
In addition to publishing traditional text-based work, check out Cogitate - our audio broadcast - and the video series. We consider submissions in both categories, as well as cover art submissions.
We're into books that use separate parts to make a whole: poetry, short stories, comics poetry, hybrids, photo stories, new styles that we haven't thought of yet.
Toyon publishes distinguished literary and art work, with particular interest in promoting environmental and social justice.
We seek diverse voices from around the world and welcome submissions in all languages.
We recognize that the texts we encounter sometimes challenge us, and that can be a sign of merit and value. We make it a practice to interrogate our readerly biases and tastes.
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.
Diode Editions is looking for poetry that excites and energizes, that uses language that crackles and sparks. We’re looking for poetry from all points on the arc, from formal to experimental (no light verse or erotic poetry, please). Simultaneous submissions are welcomed, but please notify us if they're accepted elsewhere. Diode does not accept previously published work. Submissions are welcome during contest periods. Check our website for contest dates. www.diodeeditions.com
Embodying the obsolete word it was named after, Apricity aims to manifest the feeling of the warmth of the sun in the winter in all that it publishes. Established in 2015, Apricity Press was created to fill an immense void in the publishing world. While there are a myriad of presses, literary journals and magazines, many lack the ability to publish multi-genre works, especially dance works. Because of this, Apricity constructed a space where incredible literary, art and dance works could be published side by side, showcasing the tremendous connections between the forms.
When submitting to Apricity, please follow our submission guidelines carefully!
Mortar Magazine evolves the idea that writing can and should be incisive, coming in at the edges, doing that elusive something that makes us question motive, genre, meaning, or narrative itself.
While we accept any prose or poetry submissions, we have a soft spot in our hearts for of-the-moment writing, in the sense of experimental forms and new voices.
We are very much a new publication and as such, we are flexible in terms of content and open-minded in terms of submissions. We hope to discover work that will define the magazine, not the other way around.
Sincerely Magazine is focused on art and creative writing from artists who are starting out their careers, or are looking to advance in their field.
Submit numerous pieces of writing at one time, 3-5 is a good place to start.
