Founded by Catherine Esposito Prescott and Jen Karetnick, SWWIM Every Day publishes one poem every weekday from women and women-identifying/femme-presenting writers of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, orientations, expressions and experience (emerging to internationally acclaimed). Poems are also delivered to in-boxes via subscription. The editors enjoy everything from prose poems to free verse to prosody; however, the digital platform excludes formatting some highly visual or extremely experimental pieces.

We welcome poems on a variety of themes or subjects. We especially like to see work that, despite its excellence, has been overlooked or excluded by the patriarchy. SWWIM stands for Supporting Women Writers in Miami, where we run a reading series, but we publish writers from all over the world. We nominate for all award anthologies and prizes. Subscribe for a poem delivered to your in-box every weekday to get a sense of our aesthetic and follow/like us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @swwimmiami where we re-post all the work and announce fee-free submission periods.

At Blood Tree Literature, we look for lyrical and resonant works of flash fiction and nonfiction, poetry, experimentals and hybrids that take linguistic risks to push the boundaries of conventional language and genre. So send along the box under your bed marked UNSHARABLE; the orphan poem or black-sheep fiction. Jar, arrest us.

We want work that is urgent and beautiful, that was written with lightning and a sense that tomorrow may never come. We want work that pushes edges and tells us something new. We love work that is personal and political—political in the largest sense, as in awareness of who has the power and how it is they came to have it. We publish interviews and book reviews and review-essays.

We are the Metaworker, a literary blog (or lit magazine on the internet) created by millenials, for millenials.

We started out as a group of recent graduates from Chapman University, where we were editors of the on-campus literary magazine, The Calliope. It's been two years since then, and we've been publishing poetry, fiction, and non-fiction from a variety of submitters every Monday. Our goal is simply to publish things that we, and our target audience, find interesting. So far, we feel we've done a pretty good job.

Our guidelines are intentionally loose, and while we have a "wish list" of certain types of submissions we're very interested in, we're willing to look at pretty much anything. We especially love unusual submissions that defy our expectations.

In these times when the Earth and humanity seem so breakable, as if they might break each other, we search for answers in the air. What’s our next move? What did I just see on the news? What does this moment demand of me? Poets interpret their screens, sing to nature, and admonish us our selfishness. Califragile is a portrait of turning, questioning, stretching, stepping up.

We consider most topics, not violent, pornographic, or oppressive. We seek writing that's spare and economic while showing what’s possible with imagery. We prefer modern free verse over rhyming, metered work. But quality walks in on its own. Offer us something thrilling and unexpected. Have something to say, whether on the micro or macro level. Send us your poems that deepen the dialog.

We are a volunteer, quarterly print publication based in Portland, Maine that has been publishing art, poetry and book reviews for over 25 years. We forever search for new, strong voices in poetry and art, both in Maine and beyond Maine's borders. Occasionally we create special tribute issues (such as our Sumac magazine and Auerhahn Press Issue) and do special collaborations with poets from other parts of the world (Russian/American Issue, Irish Issue and Scottish among others). Our roots are with the great beat poets such as Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Diane Di Prima.

The Lark firmly believes that the ubiquity of the internet is not a reason to accept diminished quality in publications or to skip supporting contributors. We seek to publish what's risky, critical, musical, philosophical, playful, experimental, sexy, or deadly serious. Sometimes we publish the bells and blossoms, and sometimes we publish the dark underbelly. 

Above all, we seek to be moved. 

We recommend that you look through our previous issues to get a sense of The Lark. Our guidelines are left intentionally expansive, but we take craft seriously and are drawn to work that feels honest in some way.
