LETTERS Journal is a semi-annual review of literature and the arts. The editors seek to engage creative expression with religion, spirituality, and belief, and connect the life of faith to contemporary art practice.
MORTAR MAGAZINE evolves the idea that writing can and should be incisive, coming in at the edges, doing that elusive something that makes us question motive, genre, meaning, or narrative itself.
While we accept any prose or poetry submissions, we have a soft spot in our hearts for of-the-moment writing, in the sense of experimental forms and new voices.
We are very much a new publication and as such, we are flexible in terms of content and open-minded in terms of submissions. We hope to discover work that will define the magazine, not the other way around.
Mystery, Suspense and Noir Fiction with Litarary Flavor
Sincerely Magazine is focused on art and creative writing from artists who are starting out their careers, or are looking to advance in their field.
Submit numerous pieces of writing at one time, 3-5 is a good place to start.
At Blood Tree Literature, we look for lyrical and resonant works of flash fiction and nonfiction, poetry, experimentals and hybrids that take linguistic risks to push the boundaries of conventional language and genre. So send along the box under your bed marked UNSHARABLE; the orphan poem or black-sheep fiction. Jar, arrest us.
We focus on experimental writing, and surrealism.
If you have something that has an experimental edge to it, please feel free to send it to us with a $5.00 reading fee.
An independent press based in the Chicago area, Gibson House Press publishes novels by musicians in the belief that songwriters and musicians of all kinds are uniquely connected to storytelling. While the creativity of these authors has its inspiration in music, the books are not necessarily about music. We are interested in good stories and good music, in the voices of musicians, in promoting their fiction.
Writers with a strong connection to music are invited to submit complete full-length manuscripts (80,000-word range). Subject matter need not be related to music. Please address your relationship to music and writing background in your bio and include a description/synopsis of your novel in your cover letter.
Prachya Review is a cross cultural webzine published from Bangladesh. It is not a magazine that will portray the literature of only a particular place or people. Rather we are trying to build a bridge between writers, poets, playwrights, artists, photographers... basically anyone from any corner of the world who uses any form of literature and/or art as a medium to express themselves. The key is to connect. We focus mainly on new ideas, new forms, and exploration of new concepts that are related to the theme announced for the issues.
Write hard, edit harder. And especially before sending your work to a magazine, edit as much as you can. If and when your work gets rejected, never be disheartened or discouraged. See it as an opportunity to grow, feel more inspired and encouraged, and start working again.
Bracken publishes fiction, poetry, and art. For fiction, we seek lyrical, character-driven stories inspired by the woods and old-world storytelling. We lean towards literary fiction and magic realism. In poetry, we look for natural-world, and especially arboreal, elements.
Please read the previous issues before you submit to get a feel for the kind of work that appeals to us. The setting of the pieces is very important, as is the mood.
