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.

Bridge Ink focuses on young adult creative writers, ages 13 to 18. All genres are accepted with a focus on poetry. 

Our editors yearn to see something different, to learn from a piece of work, or to discover a new point of view. We are looking for young, honest voices daring enough to share those stories. How can a poem reveal an observation, emotion, or experience in a new or unique way? How can a story change a reader’s way of thinking? We want stories that open our minds to new possibilities.

TL;DR: unconventional, genre-expanding art/lit so that we might pour out the branded-content-over-saturated spaces of our lives and refill them with the avant garde. New voices, new literature. TRUE LIVING, DOCUMENTED RELENTLESSLY

The more out-of-the-box the submission is, the better. TL;DR is dedicated to literature that expands literature and challenges pre-concieved notions about the boxes we write and creatively present our documented realities and histories in.

indicia seeks to showcase a dynamic collage of passionate and profound voices hungry to produce art and write primarily in the English language. indicia enjoys feeling out the lengths to which language can be stretched, whether to convey a feeling, an experience, a humorous observation, a dire lesson, or whatever else a literary spirit needs to say.
