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.

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.

Gazing Grain Press is an inclusive feminist chapbook series edited by alumni of George Mason University’s MFA program and sponsored by the Fall for the Book literary festival. We promote and publish feminist work by writers of all genders and sexualities. We publish chapbooks, miniatures, and our blog features book reviews, interviews, and a feminist writing resource database. We believe that inclusive feminism should make available a space for celebrating poetry that comes from a diversity of writerly identities.

We are interested in socially conscious work that explores ideas of identities as connected to gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity, culture, and ability. We adhere to no one “definition” of feminism–we encourage a broad and diverse range of approaches. Challenge us!

Representative Authors: 

Meg Day, Laura Neuman

How many authors debut in each issue?: 
We published Laura Neuman's first chapbook.
