The Offbeat, a literary journal specializing in undisputedly unique works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and sequential art, is accepting submissions. Submit writing that is intriguing, eccentric, and, most importantly, “off the beaten path.”
We ask for different. We DO NOT mean unnecessarily explicit content produced purely for the purpose of being shocking. We are interested in quality.
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!
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.
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.

Though there is no specific word or page count for fiction or creative nonfiction, Blue Earth Review is most interested in works that are under 3,000 words.
We’re seeking work that’s energetic, imaginative, and original. Send us fiction with strong, idiosyncratic voices, creative nonfiction that honestly and eloquently strips all pretenses away, and poetry that uses language with power and precision.
To get a feeling for the work we publish, we encourage you to consult the issues available on our website. When you feel ready, please read our submission guidelines and then send us your best work, along with a third-person bio of 100 words or less.
