The A3 Review is a literary magazine that behaves like a map, made by the folks who make Writing Maps. Prose and poetry pieces are written with a 150-word limit in response to a themed monthly writing contest. Twelve winners are published in the biannual review, and three overall winners receive cash prizes. Total cash prizes is £475 (approx. $620).

We are looking for original and creative responses to our monthly themed contests. Experimental work is encouraged. We accept all forms and genres of writing and artwork. Poems, flash fiction, a graphic story or a snippet of memoir... as long as it's under 151 words and fits into an A6 panel.

It all depends on the work and not on the author's bio.

We believe in supporting the creative endeavors of the writers of the world. We believe literature serves an existential function and its value to humanity is beyond measure. Therefore, we will always remain open to the possibility that an individual work may take us beyond the boundaries known today. We seek to publish work that reflects these values, offers new insights into the human condition, finds beauty in the garish, and that when we read it, we want to read it again and again. We want to fold an issue closed and find ourselves richer for knowing the words contained within.

Please follow our guidelines. Please send us your best. Please don't send work with gratuitous violence or sex in it. We nominate our authors for various awards. We host fee free submission days every reading period.

Badlands is aesthetically open, publishing work from a broad spectrum of genres and styles. Although we publish work of all kinds, we have an abiding interest in the following kinds of writing:

  • Poetry and prose in Spanish, and in translation from Spanish or any other Language,
  • Literature of Place, including, but not limited to, imigrant and indigenous voices,
  • Work exploring settings, narratives, lyric utterances, etc., that can be construed as a kind of Badlands--broadly understood,
  • Work invested in the wild.

We are always searching for the next cover, and for (mostly) Black and White artwork and photography for the interior.
