akinoga press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.

We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.

AKINOGA PRESS IS NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS/PROJECTS FOR CONSIDERATION

The next open consideration period will likely be some time in fall of 2021, but check back here (or akinogapress.com/submissions) for more details as things solidify.

The Museum of Americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.

We seek work that engages or repurposes America's complex cultural history—original & unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, interviews, music, photography, & art. Give us fiction that dramatizes old folk songs or steals their characters—give us love poetry with language cribbed from The Federalist Papers. Recent features: fiction on the 2008 financial crisis via Bartleby the Scrivener; essay on the family legacy of tomato-growing, and a personal essay on Annie Ross and "Twisted."

Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 70,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.
