"I decided some years ago that I wanted to create a space for people taking on the struggle, a venue to give those writers and artists a truly fair shot at publication and the chance to be seen, read, and recognized—no connections, no solicitations, and only blind reading. Here, the quality of work is all that matters, not who you know or where you come from or what you've already accomplished. A fair chance and an open hand for everyone—the underdogs, the in-betweeners, and the already established." —Jonathan Starke, Editor

A Velvet Giant is a collective space for work that exists outside the boundaries of genre. We recognize that it can feel impossible to talk about writing without categorizing it. When we say genreless, we don’t mean apolitical. Writing that resists binary categories such as fiction/nonfiction or poetry/prose is inherently queer and inherently political. We want writing that exists in the world, that resists tradition and expectations to build towards new ways of creating, feeling, and being.

We love ambiguity: flash pieces, found pieces, cross-genre experiments, the "poem" that thinks it might be a story, the "story" that thinks it might be a poem. Retellings and reimaginings. Works that chips away at institutional structures. Work that breaks everything down so that it can build.

TVBR publishes poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, photography, and visual art that memorably express what it means to be human. Our editorial focus is on authentic voices and evocative images. We seek work that haunts us. The best way to learn what we seek in manuscripts is to read our current on-line issues, as well as our hard copy back issues. We publish both established and emerging writers. We approach all submissions with respect. We expect writers to get to know our work before approaching us.

We accept online submissions only. Be a careful reader. Study the markets and give them the thoughtful attention you seek for your own work. Read your work out loud, maybe even record it to catch the weak spots before sending it out.

The Owen Wister Review is the University of Wyoming’s Arts and Literary Journal produced through the Student Media department. The editorial staff is comprised entirely of undergraduate and graduate students who have nuanced yet supportive tastes in art and writing and strive to publish the best quality creative non-fiction, poetry, fiction, and art submitted from both emerging and established authors and artists. We encourage work that challenges itself, that is naturally surprising.

While we have strong roots in promoting western-themed writing, we do not make it our primary focus. We encourage submissions of quality work regardless of theme or location. Please read our submission guidelines before submitting, and please do give us plenty of notice if you are submitting simultaneously. Since we publish only unpublished work, we do need to know if the piece is accepted elsewhere. We highly recommend submitting online for these reasons. Thank you!

The South Carolina Review reimagines the Southern Literary Magazine. We’re expanding our range to encompass the best of contemporary literature from various perspectives, and we want to reflect the diverse experiences of our readers and writers by publishing affecting, thought-provoking work from both new and established writers from a wide background. Writers receive two contributor copies. Top fiction and poetry submissions as deemed by the editors will receive an award of $250.

SCR publishes fiction and poetry primarily, but will also consider creative nonfiction, scholarly essays, and book reviews. We prefer electronic submissions (in PDF format only), though printed manuscripts may be mailed in accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope. No previously published work, work accepted elsewhere, or multiple submissions accepted. Please note that we cannot acknowledge receipt of manuscripts and that we cannot return manuscripts under any conditions.

The issues are cohesive; the whole of the magazine is comprehensive.

Submit anything, from new to almost-forgotten, previously published if noted in an email, or rejected for whatever reason from other venues. I do work with talented writers if a theme or plot or character can be drawn out and refined for publication in Wood Coin. The magazine is uncensored as of January 2018, yet extreme literary or artistic stunts need to coincide with US obscenity laws.

We like experiments and even failures. We relish in the avant-garde. We want to encourage risks and redefine narrative. We are not afraid to publish the cruel, harsh, and ugly. We love to laugh and bask in the unexpected joy of reading a well-developed, complex piece of literature. That said, don't try to Wow us. Show us your awesomeness.

Another New Calligraphy hopes to deliver small acts of wonder while facilitating an appreciation of unique experiences and perspectives. Our catalog strives to showcase diverse voices while honoring the stories they tell and the communities they represent.

While the catalog's niche may seem primarily poetic, other modes of expression are more than welcome. The press is always on the lookout for more music and nonfiction, as well as further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy as a home for their work.
