Coal Hill publishes an online, multi-genre literary journal in February, June, and November of each year. Each issue features 8-10 poets, 4-5 prose writers, and 2 in-depth book reviews. At least 30% of the journal is comprised of Pittsburgh writers. (Our definition of Pittsburgh writer is simply that you live or have spent a significant time in the city. The pieces submitted do not need to be Pittsburgh themed.) We’re looking for a wide range of voices; we hope you’ll be one of them.

Welcome to Bridge: The Bluffton University Literary Journal. We are committed to young writers- so committed in fact, that we only publish work by writers age 14-24. We are looking for writing that demonstrates virtuosity and wonder, original writing that delights us and challenges us. We publish a print edition in the Spring, and an online edition in the fall. 

We publish original fiction, poetry, drama, and a wide range of creative nonfiction, including student journalism. All submissions are reviewed by a team of at least three readers.  

Please note that we only publish writers and artists age 14-24.

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.

We have no restrictions on the content we publish, except that we’re passionate about publishing new perspectives — new ideas, new voices, new worlds, new challenges, new ways of seeing, etc.— a theme that can take an infinite number of shapes, including speculative fiction, experimental poetry, political essays, narrative reportage, and virtually everything else.

To submit your work, email the editors at arcturusmag@gmail.com. Please address the appropriate editor (see the masthead at the bottom of the About page) and use the subject line: GENRE: Title of Work (ex. FICTION: My Story). Provide a brief introduction and attach your work as either a Word Doc or PDF. We normally respond to submissions within one (1) month.

Anomaly is an international journal of literature and the arts. We provide a platform for works of art that challenge conventions of form and format, of voice and genre. Anomaly is committed to actively seeking out and promoting the work of marginalized and underrepresented artists, including especially people of color, women, queer, differently abled, and gender nonconforming artists.

We're especially interested in work that uses the medium of the web as part of its compositional strategy. And we look kindly on those who support the arts online (tax-deductible donations) and have some sense of the difference between print and web paradigms. Send us your best, most challenging work.

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.
