I've written my first fiction novel, which I'm currently still in the process of editing. It's called The In-Between. Here's my elevator pitch: Dream machines show users more than their nightly visions as their consciousness is propelled into a parallel reality.

We want to highlight the work of both new and established writers passionate about film, music, literature, fine arts, and culture. We are also interested in your poetry and short fiction!

Simply put, we want to start conversations about the arts through the power of great writing. We focus on those voices and subjects that are typically underrepresented in traditional media. The Pittsburgher encourages writers to send pieces on what interests them, because we bet others will find it interesting, too!

Open Doors Review is a literary magazine based in Italy that publishes literary fiction, poetry, and thought-provoking essays in English or Italian. Whatever your connection to Italy (whether you live here, have Italian ancestry or simply feel connected to the culture) we invite you to submit. If chosen, your work may have the chance to be translated from English into Italian or from Italian into English.

Your work does not have to have an Italy focus to be submitted. We are interested in literary fiction or poetry as well as essays on a theme, rather than diary-like entries or journalistic pieces. Visual art in any genre will be considered. Grazie!

I'm an emerging author who focuses on Women's Fiction and Literary Fiction. I've written poems, short stories, a novella, and I'm currently working on my first novel. 

I'm looking to connect with fellow authors and to learn ways to improve my craft, to stay motivated along the way, and to learn tips on both self-publishing and traditional publishing.

Intima: A Journal of Narrative Medicine is a literary journal dedicated to promoting the theory and practice of narrative medicine, an interdisciplinary field that enhances healthcare through the effective communication, empathy and understanding between clinicians, caregivers and patients. Our name Intima has a specific resonance in the field: For us, narrative involves the intimate interface between people, who yield and gain from the experience of stories involving the clinical encounter.

Intima publishes two issues a year: Spring and Fall with periodic essay contests. Sign up for our notification email list for our 'call for submissions' announcements. We look forward to reviewing your work. http://www.theintima.org/contact  Please review our Submissions Guidelines. https://www.theintima.org/submission-gui...

Thank you again for your interest in our journal.
