FishFood Magazine is dedicated to all forms of creative expression and talent.

FishFood Magazine encourages self-expression from daily life through art. Art tends to serve as a coping mechanism from regular shenanigans and obstacles, and FishFood's main goal is to create a community where artists can share their personal meditation through creativity.

FishFood is an irregularly published magazine that features various literary and art pieces. The online platform also serves as a gateway for multimedia artists to become recognized for their music, films, etc.

Please submit poetry that speak to the readers visually more so than lyrically. We also love micro-fiction! Boy do we love micro-fiction.

Pouch is an online poetry journal named after the distinguishing feature of the Virginia opossum- an animal we are strongly in favor of. Pouch is a nice place to put things. Nice things.

Pouch maintains a simple & reserved format for those who become grumpy when bombarded. Less is. We do not have delicate sensibilities; we value honesty, with all its fleas.

We are interested in authenticity. Understated narratives are a plus. Puns are a plus. Note that happy laughs & melancholy shrugs interest us equally. Persona poems will be a tough sell, though we are not entirely averse to them.

Despite being based in the States, Pouch is all places- happily considering work from anywhere in the world, from writers at any stage in their careers. We regret that we do not accept translations. Passable English is our only international requirement.

Does not consider previously published work.

Founded in 2011, Border Crossing is a literary and arts journal published by the Lake Superior State University Creative Writing Program. Uniquely situated on the border of the United States and Canada, we're committed to publishing the best work submitted by emerging and established writers on both sides of the border and abroad. We're especially interested in writing that crosses boundaries in genre or geography, and voices that aren't often heard in mainstream publications.

We want to bring out the very best stories and poetry that we can get our grubby little mittens on. Writing that crosses borders (metaphorically and literally) effortlessly. That makes us feel things that we didn’t know we could feel, or simply just entertain the pants off of us.

We love stories that are wildly hilarious, off the wall, surreal and surprising, but also stories that are serious, and moving, and have something to say. Our poetry desires are fickle and we’re always willing to have our minds changed at any moment by really good writing. However, in general things that warm our hearts include poems about magic, dirty makeouts, vomit and dinosaurs, whereas we’re a bit meh about poems about breakups, drinking in bars, and the seasons as metaphors for your heart.

BlazeVOX is a haven for undervalued writers to convene with readers worldwide, delivering the contemporary through books-in-hand and ebooks-in-a-minute. Articles of submission depend on many criteria, but overall items submitted must conform to one ethereal trait, your work must not suck. This put plainly, bad art should be punished; we will not promote it. However, all submissions will be reviewed and the author will receive feedback. We are human too. Please send your work.

Please see our online submission policy.

Intellectual, but approachable.

We read everything that is sent to us and will give feedback if requested. We are looking for writing that is vivid, engaging, surprising. We are less bothered about plot.

Since the magazine’s inception in 1980, editors and readers have worked to keep alive the journal’s tradition of publishing both established and emerging writers who uphold the highest standards of innovative prose and poetry.

We have eyes for work that is both innovative in form/content and heart-wrenching in theme. Send good lit!

Phoebe prides itself on supporting up-and-coming writers, whose style, form, voice, and subject matter demonstrate a vigorous appeal to the senses, intellect, and emotions of our readers. We choose our writers because we believe their work succeeds at its goals, whether its goals are to uphold or challenge literary tradition.

Phoebe seeks to publish quality writing. Please do not send formulaic writing, romance fiction, or greeting-card poetry. We do not consider previously published work. We insist on openness, which means we welcome both experimental and conventional prose and poetry, and we insist on being entertained, which means the work must capture and hold our attention, whether it be the potent language of a poem or the narrative mechanics of a short story.

The aim of Black Fox is to publish both established and new writers. We welcome all fiction, but we especially like fiction from under-represented genres and styles, including YA. We are also interested in creative nonfiction, poetry, black and white photography and art.

Please read submission guidelines carefully.
