all the sins is a quarterly digital magazine that encourages writers and artists to have courage and to sin against staid storytelling. Break rules, push boundaries and tell new stories in new ways. Just tell a good story. It was conceived as a blend of visual, digital and written art that takes storytelling to new limits, asks questions and explores the worlds in which art is made. Responses, challenges and reinventions welcome. We also publish regular features on arts-related topics and encourage submissions for these.

We are particularly interested in work that uses the internet and digital media for the opportunities they present. By 'sinful' we mean art that represents voices and stories that have not traditionally been represented in literary arts magazines - we don't mean erotica, though sex may have a role to play in a given work.

Poets Reading the News is a digital platform that publishes original poetry about current events. We believe in the power of poetry to transform the world and how we see each other. We call it journalism in verse.

We are, at heart, a newspaper – the revelation being that our copy is pure verse, produced by a diverse staff of poet-journalists from around the world, spanning disciplines, views, and geographies. What it comes down to is gripping writing about the world around us and in us.

Poets Reading the News publishes unsolicited and original poetry and prose about current events. Whenever possible, include links to news stories regarding the topic of your work. If you are integrating quotes or data into your writing, you must provide links to your sources.

We encourage writers of all backgrounds to submit their writing, especially poets of color, women poets, LGBTQI+ poets, and poets from countries and regions near and far.

To get more information and submit your writing, please visit our website. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to reading your poetry!

Badlands is aesthetically open, publishing work from a broad spectrum of genres and styles. Although we publish work of all kinds, we have an abiding interest in the following kinds of writing:

  • Poetry and prose in Spanish, and in translation from Spanish or any other Language,
  • Literature of Place, including, but not limited to, imigrant and indigenous voices,
  • Work exploring settings, narratives, lyric utterances, etc., that can be construed as a kind of Badlands--broadly understood,
  • Work invested in the wild.

We are always searching for the next cover, and for (mostly) Black and White artwork and photography for the interior.

BPP admires authors who challenge our perspectives, or who offer less-common inroads to the most compelling subjects of our time. But we only accept submissions that fit within our company's mission, which is: to engage readers on topics of contemporary culture through quality writing and thoughtful design. Our press strives to deliver socially relevant works that advise, guide, inspire and amuse. We champion authors with new perspectives, strong voices and original ideas that just might change the world.

Please read our mission carefully before you query or submit. For all submissions we require a full propsoal and a minimum of three completed chapters. Your proposal needs to be substantive, well thought-out, and complete. We may be small, but our standards aren't. We are extremely selective and consider numerous factors in taking on a new title. Please do not submit your full manuscript unless we have requested it.
