We are first and foremost a Christian publisher. However, we do not necessarily limit our submissions to non-fiction theologically-centered works. We are looking for anything that is generally wholesome in nature, whether it is fiction or non-fiction. Our general guidelines are as follows. Please look at our genre-specific guidelines for additional information. Shorter works will be published electronically, with print an option for longer works.

Do not submit works that are rife with profanity or obscenities, and similarly do not submit anything that is counter to a Christian outlook on life. Though eLectio publishing does not limit itself to just 'worship writing' or Bible devotionals, and does like to push the boundaries of what it means to be a good Christian, it is a Christian publisher. Please keep that in mind.

In Layman's Terms publishes poetry, creative nonfiction, and interviews from around the world with the intention of bridging the gap between academia and the average person, or even the gap between different branches of academia itself. It is meant to inspire a curiosity for learning about science, the natural world, and technology.

Please pay attention to the submission guidelines and the current theme. We suggest reading past issues to get a feel for what we're going for, but also because we think there are some pretty neat pieces of writing and art, and our contributors deserve some attention.

TAYO cultivates emerging poetry and prose, publishing writing that knifes, lifts, and strikes at the emotive truth of all things lost and adrift. We accept work without regard to ethnicity or nationality* (all are welcomed to submit), and we're looking for pieces that slice into the phantasmagoria of the oppressed, marginalized, post-colonized, and diasporic life. We are an annual print, quarterly online and multimedia platform for storytelling. ISSN PRINT: 2164-0270 ISSN ONLINE: 2164-0289

* We're keeping up our open policy of accepting work without regard to ethnicity/nationality. * Writing that touches on the topics of diaspora, location, identity: intersections of culture/language/sex/gender, movement/immigration; grief, emotion, trauma in relation to the aforementioned topics. * Interesting and vivid language, narrative voice, style, multi-layered, poetics.

We are looking for voices which carry a message of change, of love and liberation from marginalized places, unexplored spaces. We love art, photography included with narratives and are inclined to publish writing which pushes the borderlands between one genre and another, disappearing divisions between us. All together. We offer a nEw collection of author services to bridge the digital divides!

Please send your BEST samples, not an entire wo/manuscript. Please write a cover letter that tells us: why you wrote the work, how it could "change the world" where you see it selling, how open you are to marketting your own work (a must) and your favorite writers/artists!

Include a bio of published work, studies and any activist causes/groups which have inspired your writing.

We want work that is urgent and beautiful, that was written with lightning and a sense that tomorrow may never come. We want work that pushes edges and tells us something new. We love work that is personal and political—political in the largest sense, as in awareness of who has the power and how it is they came to have it. We publish interviews and book reviews and review-essays.

Red Flag Poetry is a postcard project that aims to deliver poetry to the mailbox of subscribers every month on a postcard. We look for poetry that is creative, original, and well crafted. We want to see poems that criticallly reflect life and force us to feel the weight of the world or your world. 

Please limit each poem to 22 lines maximum with no more than 50 characters per line. These guidelines are somewhat flexible, but keep in mind this has to go on a 4x6 postcard
