The Writing Disorder is a quarterly literary journal devoted to literature, art and culture. Our mission is to showcase new and emerging writers—particularly those in writing programs—as well as established writers. We feature new fiction, poetry, nonfiction, interviews, reviews and art. Although we strive to publish original and experimental work, The Writing Disorder remains rooted in the classic art of storytelling. Our poetry editor is Juliana Woodhead. Send poetry to: poetry@thewritingdisorder.com

Submit your best work. We publish writers of all ages—from all over the world. No maximum word count. Read, Write, Submit.

We’ll look at any genre. We like serious, comic, lighthearted, dark, emotional, and acerbic. The important factor for us is that the work use story, characters, emotions, and other fundamental elements of storytelling to think, to ask questions, to move the mind forward.

Read the stories we've published. Don't include your name within the body of your manuscript.

Diagram is an electronic journal of text and art. As our name indicates, we're interested in representations. In naming. In indicating. In schematics. In the labelling and taxonomy of things. In poems that masquerade as stories; in stories that disguise themselves as indices or obituaries.

Cover letters preferred. Electronic submissions strongly preferred.

​bedfellows is a thematic, philadelphia-based literary magazine that seeks to catalog contemporary discussions of desire & intimacy, with a particular focus on underrepresented & marginalized voices. we publish work that we feel subverts (or confronts) the stigmas that are often attached to sex-focused writing.

while bedfellows publishes exclusively sex, intimacy, & desire-themed work, please note that we are not interested in traditional erotica writing.

all the sins is a quarterly digital magazine that encourages writers and artists to have courage and to sin against staid storytelling. Break rules, push boundaries and tell new stories in new ways. Just tell a good story. It was conceived as a blend of visual, digital and written art that takes storytelling to new limits, asks questions and explores the worlds in which art is made. Responses, challenges and reinventions welcome. We also publish regular features on arts-related topics and encourage submissions for these.

We are particularly interested in work that uses the internet and digital media for the opportunities they present. By 'sinful' we mean art that represents voices and stories that have not traditionally been represented in literary arts magazines - we don't mean erotica, though sex may have a role to play in a given work.
