This magazine is looking for the in-depth authenticity of what the artist can create by dishing out their ideas and feelings. Our team is looking for a diverse spectrum of essays, prose, short fiction, art, poetry and more! We want pieces that will knock us to our feet — in a good way.
We are a coalition of editors and publishing professionals working together to make our authors successful, and our goal is to grow slowly but steadily by publishing books we love.
We support our authors with quality editing and commercial covers, and partner with them to market their books. We work to bridge the gap between traditional and self-publishing by publishing our authors in both digital and print simultaneously while offering higher royalties than the Big 5. We truly believe in a publisher / author partnership. Our authors’ successes are our successes.
The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery and collected conversation. The first priority of the Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel.

MORIA is a national online literary magazine with an all-student editorial board, based at Woodbury University in greater Los Angeles. We accept poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from emerging and established writers in the United States and across the world. We publish once-a-year, in the late fall.
While we accept all styles — including experimental, hybrid, and conventional forms — we aren’t interested in submissions of light verse, genre fiction, and any piece that references gratuitous violence or exploitative sexual imagery. We’re committed to publishing a diverse range of poets and writers. In our debut issue (2017), 73% of our authors were women and 24% were writers of color. We also published pieces from writers in their 20s to writers in their 70s — and every decade in between. We welcome work from traditionally under-represented groups, including women writers, indigenous writers, writers of color, writers who identify as LGBTQ, and writers with disabilities.
