Apofenie is a quarterly online literary journal founded in 2017. Our mission is to promote underrepresented voices and share stories that provoke the reader to engage with both their interior lives and the material world.
Take a look at our previously-published material before submitting your work.
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.
Ekphrastic writing. All of the poetry and prose we publish in inspired by visual art.
Read the journal! We love diverse styles of quality writing from all over the world, but if your work doesn't respond to works of visual art, we can't use it.
If you are someone who loves visual art and loves writing about visual art, we'd love to hear from you.
Surprise us. We want nothing less than to expand and redefine exkphrasis by stretching the concept to its limits. Show us artworks we've never seen, or show us our familiar favourites from a whole new perspective.
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.
We publish exclusively the openings of unpublished novels, accompanied by brief Authors' Statements. In each issue, we feature a range of genres, including literary dramas, mysteries, science fiction, and historical fiction.
We are looking for novel openings in every genre, with intriguing characters and premises, but above all we prioritize polished, confident writing.
Mithila Review is an international speculative arts and culture magazine. We are open to original submissions as well as translations from around the world.
Along with original speculative fiction and poetry, we will host reviews, discussions and appreciations of stories, books, movies, television series, arts, comics, etc that explore interstitial spaces and marginal experience in the world we live today.
Please send us your best stories. As a new market in a part of the world where none exists, where nobody expects us to publish, we cannot afford to compromise on quality.
The personal is always political. We seek to publish fiction, poetry and art that reveal, resist or address various forms of tyrannies.
Please make sure to read our submission guidelines.
