“Strong Words for a Polite Nation” subTerrain Magazine was founded in 1988 to publish writers from the other side of the tracks. Each issue features progressive and sometimes controversial writing, alongside timely book reviews and contemporary visual art. Praised by both writers and readers for featuring work that might not find a home in more conservative periodicals, subTerrain seeks to expand the definition of literary and artistic culture by showcasing the best in progressive writing and ideas.

Please DON'T send us formulaic genre fiction (eg. Romance, Mystery, Sci-fi etc.)

Please DO read a copy of the magazine. If you can't find one on the newsstand, we will send you a copy for $5 (and we pay the postage!).

Please DO read our Writer's Guidelines before submitting (at www.subterrain.ca).

We now accept electronic submissions via Submittable (we do NOT accept emailed submissions). Electronic submissions are charged a $3 fee to help pay for our Submittable account and thereby allow us to continue accepting electronic submissions; mailed submissions come with no charge (though you will have to pay for postage).

RATTLE is pretty simple: We love poetry and feel that it's something everyone can enjoy. We look for poems that are accessible, that have heart, that have something to say. And then we publish them. Poetry should make you laugh or cry; it should enlighten and entertain.

There are no dos and don’ts. We have room to be eclectic, and seek to
represent the entire stylistic landscape. Formal poems, epic poems,
lyric poems, narrative poems, surreal poems, prose poems, visual
poems—it’s all poetry. The most important thing a poem can be is
memorable. Does it lodge itself in your gut? Does it sing in there?

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.

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.

The Apple Valley Review is an online literary journal. It is published twice annually, once in spring and once in fall. Each issue features a collection of poetry, short fiction, and essays. Our goal is to support and promote both emerging and established writers.

We prefer work that has both mainstream and literary appeal. Please do not send us strict genre fiction or erotica, work containing explicit language or violence, or work that is scholarly or critical, inspirational, or intended for children. Please note that these are purely editorial preferences. Work that is not a good fit here may be perfect for another market.
