Mission: To publish the best writing, thought and information about work, or lack thereof, while providing a forum for readership to connect and respond.

WORK is dedicated to celebrating the daily grind: white collar, blue collar, pink collar, sex work, food service, freelancing and more.

WORK has an intentionally bland format, so that it can be enjoyed while you’re still on the clock. WORK is subversive, so you can be subversive at work.

Please be previously unpublished. Feel free to submit WORD or RTF docs via WORK's online submission form. If submitting via email, please use the word submission in the subject line. Please attach .doc format. No PDFs.

We want something real, something beautiful, something ugly, or something that sings to the far reaches of our being. Make us laugh or make us cry, but we want something visceral. Free verse poems are generally favored over those that rhyme. Experimentation is encouraged.

Electronic submissions only. Please read our submission guidelines. We do not accept attachments. We're always open to pushing boundaries.

Clockwise Cat is a progressive literary webzine that features verse, reviews, and invective (satire/polemics). Clockwise Cat prefers to receive poems that are in some way akin to the Symbolist, Dadaist, Surrealist, Beat, spoken word, and experimental genres. However, we will regard all well-crafted submissions that brashly flout conventions.

FishFood Magazine is dedicated to all forms of creative expression and talent.

FishFood Magazine encourages self-expression from daily life through art. Art tends to serve as a coping mechanism from regular shenanigans and obstacles, and FishFood's main goal is to create a community where artists can share their personal meditation through creativity.

FishFood is an irregularly published magazine that features various literary and art pieces. The online platform also serves as a gateway for multimedia artists to become recognized for their music, films, etc.

Please submit poetry that speak to the readers visually more so than lyrically. We also love micro-fiction! Boy do we love micro-fiction.

Pouch is an online poetry journal named after the distinguishing feature of the Virginia opossum- an animal we are strongly in favor of. Pouch is a nice place to put things. Nice things.

Pouch maintains a simple & reserved format for those who become grumpy when bombarded. Less is. We do not have delicate sensibilities; we value honesty, with all its fleas.

We are interested in authenticity. Understated narratives are a plus. Puns are a plus. Note that happy laughs & melancholy shrugs interest us equally. Persona poems will be a tough sell, though we are not entirely averse to them.

Despite being based in the States, Pouch is all places- happily considering work from anywhere in the world, from writers at any stage in their careers. We regret that we do not accept translations. Passable English is our only international requirement.

Does not consider previously published work.

Rivet publishes writing that breaks from the mainstream to surprise, challenge, and delight. Each issue brings together poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that test the boundaries of form and content--a surrealist sestina followed by a lyric essay on multiracial identity then a flash fiction set in humanity’s far future--the intersections as intriguing as the works themselves. Rivet writers explore their craft fearlessly and thoughtfully, and our editors are dedicated to providing them with a professional venue for publishing experimental work.

We are interested in: surreal, fabulist, and remix aesthetics; political and controversial topics; hybrid and multimedia things that play well online; literary takes on popular genres; reviews of books/media and interviews of people that would be of interest to our audience. We are not interested in: shock value alone; middle class ennui. Most of all, surprise us with something we’ve never seen before, that moves and reveals. We believe in the author-editor relationship, and we work with each writer to fully realize their vision. If that’s something you are as excited about as we are, then we want to read your work.
