We're focused on showcasing diverse writers because we want to give a platform for stories told from new perspectives, particularly if they are told by marginalized voices. We're not concerned with credentials in terms of prior publications or degrees. Instead, we look for quality writing that stands out, whether it's from a seasoned author or emerging writer.

We recommend reading stories that we have already published to get a feel for the type of narratives we prefer. We also really appreciate crisp, well-revised manuscripts. Other than that, the best way to impress us is by submitting a unique story that leaves a lasting impression.

Every issue of the Literary e-clectic is the same only different. Each quarter will have a different theme that the stories adhere.  We don’t care if the stories are fiction or non-fiction or what type of genre that they may fall. What we care about is having good stories.

The Tusk publishes nuanced and often humorous works of narrative nonfiction, and sometimes fiction. We aim to build a conversation on a variety of political, cultural, and personal topics using irony, complexity, ambiguity and darkness.

Please send us your most vulnerable, least self-aggrandizing work. Please don't aim to make friends. Please don't be reductive. Please be hilarious and/or heartbreaking.

Fat Dog Books is an independent online publisher founded on the premise that if our experience with reading a manuscript is satisfying and engages our intellect and imagination, then it might just do the same for other readers. We grew from a long partnership with another reputable, online publisher, Martin Sisters Publishing, and found the experience of working with authors so enjoyable that we established our own publishing company. Combined, the staff at Fat Dog Books has over 40 years of experience in publishing, editing, writing, and design.

Please visit our website at fatdogbooks.com. Review "Working with Authors" and the submission guidelines. All submissions are through the website forms. All submissions should target an audience 13 or older.

The Phantom Billstickers Cafe Reader is a quarterly literary zine featuring short stories, poems, art and editorial by both New Zealanders and international authors. The stories we publish are heartfelt glimpses into family, community, and the more colourful aspects of the creative life. Our contributors are a collection of globally recognized authors and emerging artists who deserve to be heard. 2017 will be our 5th year publishing the Café Reader. 2,000 copies are distributed in the USA through 50 independent bookstores. 10,000 free copies are distributed in New Zealand.

Although we do publish some poetry in each issue, the Café Reader is not a ‘poetry’ publication. Short fiction is more likely to be accepted. Emerging voices are as likely to be published as established authors. We value diversity. We admire content that is thought provoking, heartfelt, humorous and that challenges the norm.
