We obey no genre and take anything from limericks to fantasy to genres yet invented. Our key desires are originality, accessibility and quality. We like work with a point, something to say or some sort of inner majic that gives greater meaning to the pretty words and thrilling plots. That said, we're not really sure what we’re looking for until we've seen it, so give us a try. Published online monthly, Red Fez Publications features poetry and prose outside of the narrow, academic stream. Red Fez is committed to bringing light to underground and under-recognized writers and writing.

Please do NOT send snail mail submissions. Use the submission form on the website. Read the guidelines and past issues to get a feel for what we like.

Cobalt is a quarterly literary magazine published online. We also publish an annual print issue, and will be rolling out an all-baseball issue in July 2013. Each issue will feature fiction, non-fiction and poetry of the highest caliber, as well as interviews with some of the most influential writers in the literary community. We seek to publish quality creative work and promote the literary arts, as well as those who celebrate them.

Generally, we love the "wow" factor. If your work leaves a lasting impression with the genre editor, you've got a good shot. We like things that grip the edge of traditional forms. Experimental is fine, but there should be a focus - something that holds it all together. We are very competitive, so you should be sending your best work. Snail mail submissions are not recommended, as our editors only meet a few times between each issue. Online submissions are encouraged.

Cordite Poetry Review is a quarterly Australian journal of poetry and its criticism. International authors are most welcome. Each issue is themed (broadly), so please be sure to look at our submissions page.

Cordite Scholarly is a fully refereed section of the journal, dedicated to research.

We are interested in all formats of poetry. Just because Word can centre a poem in your document, doesn't mean it should. Else, we have no profound DOs and DON'Ts. Each of our issues is guest-edited by a different poet. Submissions are always read blind.

Please send us your best work, after reading a bit of the work we publish.
We publish twice yearly and accept unsolicited poetry, fiction, nonfiction, short plays and monologues, and visual art submissions via our Online Submissions Manager.
Our submissions periods run from February 1 to April 1 for the winter issue, and from June 1 to August 1 for the spring issue. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but we ask to be informed immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.
