Coal Hill publishes an online, multi-genre literary journal in February, June, and November of each year. Each issue features 8-10 poets, 4-5 prose writers, and 2 in-depth book reviews. At least 30% of the journal is comprised of Pittsburgh writers (Our definition of Pittsburgh writer is simply that you live or have spent a significant time in the city. The pieces submitted do not need to be Pittsburgh themed.) We’re looking for a wide range of voices; we hope you’ll be one of them.

Waxwing is a literary journal promoting the tremendous cultural diversity of contemporary American literature, alongside international voices in translation. We believe that American voices are, at their cores, both multicultural and multinational, and so the editors’ mission is to include American writers from all cultural identities — in terms of race, ethnicity, indigenous tribe, gender, class, sexuality, age, education, ability, language, religion, and region — alongside international voices, published bilingually.
Waxwing publishes poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, reviews, art, and music, as well as international literature in translation. Waxwing currently accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translations; all other content is solicited.
Due to the high number of submissions and Submittable’s fees for magazines, Waxwing caps submissions at 300/month—submitting at the beginning of the month improves your chances of catching us before we hit the limit. If you are unable to submit due to closure, please come back and submit the next month.
Submissions not conforming to our guidelines will be deleted without a response. Please read our submissions page.
The Brown Orient exclusively publishes women and LGBTQ+ writers and artists from local and diasporic South Asia, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia, and Central Asia.
