Mount Island is dedicated to supporting rural LGBTQ and POC writers and artists, whether rural by birth or at heart. We seek:
- Prose and poems that buck the standard. Any genre, whether traditional or invented.
- Art that liberates vision. Any medium, whatever can be displayed digitally.
- Interviews, reviews, and articles that follow passion and further connection.
This magazine is looking for the in-depth authenticity of what the artist can create by dishing out their ideas and feelings. Our team is looking for a diverse spectrum of essays, prose, short fiction, art, poetry and more! We want pieces that will knock us to our feet — in a good way.
The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery and collected conversation. The first priority of the Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel.
Please read our mission statement and send work that corresponds with our mission
The Nasiona’s mission is to cultivate the seeds of nonfiction. We publish and promote narrative-led work that explores the human condition. We focus on creative works based on facts, truth-seeking, human concerns, real events, and real people, with a personal touch.
Be familiar with our content and submit pieces that fit what we're about. Though we are a nonficiton magazine, we lean toward creative nonfiction, narrative nonfiction, and nonfiction poetry. We try to steer away from position essays that try to persuade the reader to take a side on an issue. Instead, we look to disclose new worlds through the lens of personal experiences.
Apollo Publishers publishes narrative nonfiction books on topics we deem timely and topical. Books must be at least 50,000 words in length and must have broad, trade appeal.
Please submit a book proposal, sample chapter, and author bio. If your book may be a good fit for our list, we will get back to you. Due to the volume of submissions, we may not be able to respond to each submission.
Call + Response is a literary and arts journal providing a creative hub for new and emerging artists of color. We aim to introduce fresh and creative voices to the world through diverse and original art, poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews.
This journal is a celebration and an exploration made by POC, for POC.
This is a safe place for creatives to be, well, creative. But this is also a hate-free zone. Although we will accept political and mature work with topics like sexuality, gender identity, racism, colorism, sexism, reproductive rights, etc. We will not accept work that explicitly details rape, murder and/or bodily or self-harm.
