We aim to publish art and words for the future by artists and writers who believe they're carrying, on their hunched-over-computer shoulders, a pretty heavy yet very pretty burden—to offer us all a way into ourselves so that we may come back out with the wisdom required for positive change as individuals, and as a society. All accepted work will appear both online and in print.

  •  

We aren’t certain there is “good” and “bad” art—only honest and dishonest art… but we’ll get back to you on that. Suffice it to say, we really don’t want to be gatekeepers. We want to be a blank canvas. 

Press Pause will never have a social media account. It will never promote itself (or get into online debates) on social media, so that the art that is shared can be appreciated within the embrace of a lovely now-uncommon silence. 

Submitting to Press Pause will always be free.

The Twin Bill is a quarterly online literary baseball publication founded in 2020 at the start of the pandemic. We celebrate the rich history of the game while also recognizing its vibrant present through essays, fiction, poetry, interviews, and visual art. We welcome writers of all levels and experiences.

We want to hear your story about baseball. It generally helps if you focus on a single game or moment as opposed to listing multiple ones.

Hey, I'm an aspiring writer from Chiang Mai, Thailand. I've been writing for a while, but I've yet to publish. I know my mechanics and basic principles, so I'm almost ready to start putting my work out there. Right now, I'm gathering material, working out a manageable editorial calendar, and thinking of of consistent content ideas.

 

I'm interested in learning the tricks of the trade and joining craft communities.

 

Hope to meet some interesting people.

Fecund highlights exceptional works of new abundance. The magazine is a medium through which writers and visual artists are exquisitely showcased and paid for their work. Fecund publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, theory, criticism, fashion writing, and visual art via interdisciplinary media (text, audio, video, new media).

Although we don’t conform to one aesthetic, we respond to work that challenges traditional forms or embraces liminality.

You might describe us as a heavy metal acid trip via literature. We believe books are hallucinogens suffused with emotion, feeling, and sensation. Our books wobble in the frame of reality and dissect the prism of surreality. These books tend to be difficult to categorize, but together they form a kaleidoscopic mirror of an increasingly bleak world. However, we're far from hopeless. We like to have fun and believe in the power of art. We are a space for writers to explore their risky ideas in new and interesting ways. Anyone with an open mind is welcome to join the party. 

We are seeking imaginative and challenging books that push boundaries. We are as interested in mood, sensation, and altered states of perception as we are in the story. We like stories with the ethereal quality of memory filtered through a psychedelic kaleidoscope. We want darkly peculiar narratives that are compelling and have a range of emotion. We want daring work that keeps us on edge, waiting for the next ghost to materialize. Surprise us. Most of all, we want books that take risks. Show us something we've never seen before.

We're looking for fiction (<7000 words), poetry, critical essays, and translations.

Our name come from something once said by Harold Brodkey: "The reader in his or her life has more access to the real than the author does, which counters the author's more practised access to language. This is Momentism." We looking for writing that takes up this relationship, that hazards being misunderstood. This doesn't necessarily only mean experimental writing, and we'll consider writing of all styles.

For the third issue, we’re particularly interested in essay/criticism and translation proposals, though we will consider submissions of all kinds.
