Fecund highlights exceptional works of new abundance. The magazine is a medium through which writers and visual artists are exquisitely showcased and paid for their work. Fecund publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, theory, criticism, fashion writing, and visual art via interdisciplinary media (text, audio, video, new media).

Although we don’t conform to one aesthetic, we respond to work that challenges traditional forms or embraces liminality.

Specific topics we want to include:

  • voices/experiences from countries outside the USA
  • self-care and mental health during crisis & quarantine
  • low-budget DIY guides (think Whole Earth Catalogue)
  • the changing role of the internet in daily life
  • ecology, climate change, the natural world
  • hustles/informal economies post-“gig economy”
  • cyberpunk/tech futures
  • experiences from within hospitals
  • researched, informative articles/tutorials for quarantine success

Published monthly by the editors of Creative Nonfiction magazine, each issue of True Story showcases one exceptional essay by one exceptional writer. From issue to issue, this new mini-magazine features the widest possible variety of voices and styles and subjects. Our editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines. We’re open to all types of creative nonfiction, from immersion reportage to personal essay to memoir.

Please do send work that blends style with substance, and reaches beyond the personal to tell us something new about the world. We're drawn to stories that balance a strong narrative (i.e. something happens) with a teaching or reflective element (i.e. the something that happens matters for some reason). Please do include your complete contact information and keep us informed of the status of simultaneous submissions. Please don't send poetry.

Creative Nonfiction draws heavily from unsolicited submissions. Our editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines, and it’s been our privilege to work with many fine writers early in their careers. A typical issue of CNF contains at least one essay by a previously unpublished writer. We’re open to all types of creative nonfiction, from immersion reportage to personal essay to memoir.

Please do send work that blends style with substance, and reaches beyond the personal to tell us something new about the world. We're drawn to stories that balance a strong narrative (i.e. something happens) with a teaching or reflective element (i.e. the something that happens matters for some reason). Please do include your complete contact information and keep us informed of the status of simultaneous submissions. Please don't send poetry.

C&R Press began in 2006 as a literary press committed to publishing books from new and emerging poets whose work might otherwise be ignored by commercial publishers. We were interested in supporting authors whose thoughtful and imaginative contribution to contemporary literature deserved recognition and support. We've since expanded our catalog to include exciting new fiction and creative nonfiction and reportage/journalism, too.

Do understand that we get more submissions per month than we could ever publish in a lifetime. Please don't take rejections personally. We frequently reject books that are picked up at other presses!

Thurston Howl Publications is a small progressive publishing house in Lansing, Michigan. We have specialized in animal fiction and evocative literature.

The best way to appeal to any of our editors is to move them in a certain way. Your horror should terrify; your fantasy amaze; your erotica arouse; your political lit intrigue.

Representative Authors: 

Some of our namesake authors include Alan Gordon, David Clement-Davies, Catherynne Valente, Kyell Gold, and Fred Patten.

Established by combat veterans and maintained by a diverse board of veterans, military spouses, and writers compelled by themes of social justice and human resilience, the Wrath-Bearing Tree publishes essays, reviews, fiction, and poetry on military, economic, and social violence written by those who have experienced military, economic, and social violence or their consequences. 

We seek to expand the conversation around violence, conflict, and war. We especially like work that is thoughtful and balanced when it comes to questions of diversity.
