The Woven Tale Press is a fine arts and literary magazine that welcomes unsolicited submissions. We focus on contributors with a web presence (blog or website). You may send us new or previously published material, as long as you still have the rights. We will link back to your blog or website (or both). Follow the submission guidelines at the link provided in this listing. Include a brief bio (25-75 words).

Please have a website (social media are good, but Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, etc., are not sufficient—we want your blog or your website). We pride ourselves on being eclectic and publishing quality works. Send a link to art if you have it. We like writing that takes us someplace “other.” Audio should be clear (SoundCloud works), video should be visually interesting. If you illustrate your work, send a link.

TL;DR (True Living, Documented Relentlessly) is a home for the avant-garde, unconventional, genre-expanding art/lit so that we might pour out the branded-content-over-saturated spaces of our lives. New voices, new literature.

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

all the sins is a quarterly digital magazine that encourages writers and artists to have courage and to sin against staid storytelling. Break rules, push boundaries and tell new stories in new ways. Just tell a good story. It was conceived as a blend of visual, digital and written art that takes storytelling to new limits, asks questions and explores the worlds in which art is made. Responses, challenges and reinventions welcome. We also publish regular features on arts-related topics and encourage submissions for these.

We are particularly interested in work that uses the internet and digital media for the opportunities they present. By 'sinful' we mean art that represents voices and stories that have not traditionally been represented in literary arts magazines - we don't mean erotica, though sex may have a role to play in a given work.

Six Ft. Swells Press publishes and celebrates After-Hours Poetry—a modern poetry movement known for its concise structure and unbridled confessional style in presenting the language and experiences of the everyperson. Common themes found in this genre are: taverns, music, cocktails, broken hearts, first kisses, Saturday nights out on the town, Sunday morning blues, road stories, parties and celebratory happenings…and the simple, unexpected moments that present themselves to the poet.

We would like to see poetry that makes us: chuckle, turn up the radio in the background, stand up and yell “Hell Yeah!”, remember fondly when it happened to us, take you out for a beer, dance the night away, and share with our nextdoor neighbors how fun and accessible poetry can be in the After-Hours poetry genre. We do not accept or enjoy rhyming poetry, personal journal entries, or rants–political, war, death, or otherwise. We are all about seeking celebration and finding beauty--no matter how raw-- in the themes listed above.

Todd Cirillo, Julie Valin, Matt Amott, Amber Decker, Maddie Levy, Will Staple.
