I'm feeling for routes through a sprawling landscape of documentary fiction and other disciplines such as memoir, history, three-dimensional objects on exhibit, and performance. The broad topics might include diaspora, genocide, mothers and daughters, secrets and lies, and monuments, memories, and memorials.
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.
No Tokens is a journal celebrating work that is felt in the spine. We are run entirely by women, queer, trans, and non-binary individuals, dedicated to featuring the words and artwork of all voices of the past, present, and future. We are here to keep stories alive. We are paying attention.
Our scope is wide, but in general we are looking for work that explores the nexus between humanity, spirituality, and life experience. We do not deny the validity of the basic categories of physics, biology, psychology, and the other sciences: we claim only that human beings cannot be fully understood in terms of them. Thus, art.

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.
