As Read Furiously, we want to create a new generation of readers - furious readers - who view reading as a necessary part to living in this busy world. We publish original prose, graphic novels, and poetry from a diverse cross section of authors in hopes of connecting with readers from every background.

At Read Furiously we believe the publisher/creator relationship should be taken very seriously, and we do everything we can to foster it. Whether we will be working together on a single project or are planning a long term collaboration, we are looking for creators who understand our mission and share the our passion for the written word. We encourage all creators to take their time to acquaint themselves with Read Furiously, our work, and our goals for the company.

We publish 3-6 featured pieces every two weeks--focusing primarily on poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction.

Our digital gallery publishes photo essays, visual poetry, and artists from southwestern Virginia.

On occasion, we invite authors published with Roanoke Review to contribute podcast readings and interviews.

Roanoke Review was founded in 1967 by Pulitzer prize-winning poet Henry Taylor at Roanoke College, where it remains to this day. For the past fifty years, the Review has promoted both established writers and new voices. We seek to be an accessible read, intent on publishing down-to-earth writers with a sense of place, a sense of language, and—perhaps most importantly—a sense of humor.

Love what you send us. We hope we will, too.

What a Literary Magazine is Supposed to be About: The Writers, Artists and Above All, YOUR Voice!We strongly, passionately believe that instead of being taught what to think, we should be teaching each other how to think, and also be taught how to think. Only then will we discover the capabilities of our own individual cognitive abilities. It’s another step toward shattering the mold. WRITE WHAT YOU WRITE, not what you think we want you to write.

What we WON’T TOLERATE or ACCEPT:-Racism -Misogyny -Vulgarity for vulgarity’s sake (i.e., think: an endless, nonsensical urban dictionary. No, no and no.) -Deeply disturbing ideals and/or fantasies *Important thing to note here: This is not to say in any way, shape or form that we won’t accept something dark, edgy, thought-provoking or writing containing violence or profanities–there’s a line, however. You’ll know when you’ve crossed it. As for concepts or stories about the existence of racism and misogyny, that’s different. I mean that I won’t accept or tolerate literature perpetuating or stating overt racist ideals or sexism.

Raising Mothers is an online literary magazine created by and for femme identifying and NBPOC writers who parent. We exist at the intersection of art, scholarship, and community. We aim to elevate our voices, share our stories, talk about our issues, represent our culture, cultivate community, preserve our history, and celebrate our joy. 

Raising Mothers publishes original, previously unpublished work that explores life and in turn how that affects us as parents and people. Work is accepted on an ongoing basis. Writing should be strong and engaging without being academic in tone. Please read our submissions guide carefully to be considered.

BPP admires authors who challenge our perspectives, or who offer less-common inroads to the most compelling subjects of our time. But we only accept submissions that fit within our company's mission, which is: to engage readers on topics of contemporary culture through quality writing and thoughtful design. Our press strives to deliver socially relevant works that advise, guide, inspire and amuse. We champion authors with new perspectives, strong voices and original ideas that just might change the world.

Please read our mission carefully before you query or submit. For all submissions we require a full propsoal and a minimum of three completed chapters. Your proposal needs to be substantive, well thought-out, and complete. We may be small, but our standards aren't. We are extremely selective and consider numerous factors in taking on a new title. Please do not submit your full manuscript unless we have requested it.

At Proximity, we believe that tangible connections—the kind that root us in a specific place, time, or culture—are living wells of fresh ideas. We hope the stories we publish will expand our readers’ views of the world while grounding readers in their own communities. We choose stories that encourage reflection, laughter, conversation, difficult-but-important questions, and, on occasion, a really good cry. Each theme-based issue pulls together personal and documentary storytelling, diverse in form and length.

Read Proximity and keep tabs on our submission calls.

We are looking for innovative, luxuriant, insightful human stories—and for things that might surprise us. We like writing that takes risks, affects us deeply, and yet also meets the highest standards of beautiful language and appropriate syntax.

Please read an issue of The Florida Review before you send us your work in order to get a feel for the kind of writing we publish.We do not consider typical genre fiction (sci-fi, romance, action, or fantasy), nor do we publish scholarly essays. Spiritual and political themes and stories of personal loss should be handled with sophistication and a knowledge of contemporary writing in those areas because we don’t publish stereotypical religious odes, political rants, or diary-like entries.

We call ourselves an “alternative” magazine; that is to say: our purpose is to promote work that is thought-provoking and unconventional. We want the controversial and the radical, the unhinged and the bizarre; we want the obsessive, the compulsive, the pervasive, the combative, and the seductive. We believe that every work of quality art has a home where it belongs, and for the “alternative,” the Matador Review is a home.
