Plates is an internationally minded experimental journal with care for art, design, writing, and community.

Plates welcomes proposals for essays, interviews, reviews, maps, love letters, recipes, literary works, and page-based installations. Work that exists exclusively in the digital realm is also warmly welcomed for online-only publication.

Criticality is compulsory; positivity is welcomed if you feel it; objectivity is (a figment) optional.

Flare is an international literary journal founded by a dedicated group of young writers, photographers, and artists to explore the complexity of the human experience. Our mission is to encourage artists and writers of all backgrounds to express themselves, and we strongly believe that sharing art lifts and connects, regardless of age or location. We hope that our journal is able to empower through that mission.

We applaud work that is loud, expressive, and sincere. We look for honest storytelling that explores the diversity of the human experience. Please keep in mind that our magazine caters to a wide range of ages, and adhere to all submission guidelines.

We host writing contests in fiction and poetry and welcome international submissions. We juxtapose tradition with experiment, the up-and-comer with the established writer, and create a new dialogue.

**The Writer’s Hotel NYC Writer’s Conference is the editorial arm of the New Guard. More info at www.writershotel.com and www.writershotelweekends.com. We support writers in practice and in print. Write better, publish smarter. Get inspired. 

The New Guard Vol. X contest judges TNG Editors Shanna McNair and Scott Wolven, judging both contests. Contest rules: Machigonne Fiction Contest: 5,000 words max, any genre. Knightville Poetry Contest: 150 lines max, any form. Winners in Poetry and Fiction each get a $1,500 prize and publication. Finalists are also published. Final judging is blind. We pay strict attention to word and line count. Unpublished work only. Simultaneous submissions accepted. Fee is $22 per entry.  Deadline is January 11, 2021. Our online segment, BANG! is open for submissions year-round. BANG! is a showcase for very short work. Submit: www.newguardreview.com/bang. All other material is published in print, only in the New Guard.

Send me your best poetry. I don’t particularly care whether it’s formal or informal, metrical or free verse, rhyming or not. I’ve written all those possibilities myself. A good poem isn’t one that gets the grades for following particular rules. And I’m sure I’ll reject plenty of good poems anyway.

SORTES publishes whatever makes us shiver, plotz, turn on, and/or freak out. We've published what might be called magical realism, dirty surrealism, fantastical biography, experimental poetry, tender balladeering, elusive allusive elliptical poetry, and sweet old grainy photography.

SORTES considers unsolicited submissions of poetry, prose, illustration, music, videos, and anything else you think may fit our format and feel—and very often material that doesn't. Feel free to poke at us: we’d love to find a way to publish dance, sculpture, puzzles, and other unliterary modalities.
