S/tick is a vibrant mag with a lively community that appeared on the scene in April 2012. We aim to publish bright and touching work from both new and established authors. While work with a feminist consciousness that challenges the status quo and says things that are difficult to say may be hard to find a home for, it's exactly what we're looking for. S/tick provides a place for women and feminists to share their grief, anger, and joy.

Please send submissions of your art and creative writing with a biting feminist bent! Ensure your submission is related somehow to issues of interest to women, unless a themed issue specifies otherwise.

We publish interesting fiction, poetry, essays, and multimedia work from all over the world. However, preference is given to writers, artists, and subject matter with some connection to the South. We are particularly interested in work that uses conventions of traditional genres in new and interesting ways.

We don't want "traditional" Southern lit. We want literary and experimental work that touches on themes of interest to Southerners. Interpret that however you like, but DON'T assume this limits you to talking about trailers, hunting/fishing, fried food, and race relations. In fact, avoid talking about those things unless you have something really original to say about them. We get a lot more poetry submissions than fiction. Fiction has a better shot at being selected simply because it's more in demand. It should go without saying, but please read our submission guidelines, and use our online submission tracker. Also, please include a bio statement in your cover letter.

The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.

We at Levee aim to physically publish quality fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry from both emerging and established authors. We ask for First North American Serial Rights upon acceptance, but after that the rights revert back to you. Please send prose pieces (fiction and nonfiction) up to 8,000 words, and up to 5 poems at a time. Overall, we won't know what we'll love or hate until we see it, so show us what you got!

WE ENJOY:

  • Poems written in meter
  • Literary Fiction
  • Surrealism
  • Magical Realism
  • Lyric Essays
  • Braided Essays
  • Experimental works
  • Contemporary takes on traditional poetic forms
  • Environmental Writing
  • Prose Poetry
  • Flash Fiction

WE SKIM:

  • Poems that are centered on the page
  • Shape Poetry
  • Genre Fiction
  • YA Fiction
  • Academic Essays
  • Stories that spell out the moral
  • Abundant similes
  • "Ode for ____" when it is not actually in ode form

If your piece is something not listed on either of these lists, it’s fair game.

Rune Bear is a digital literary magazine devoted to the Strange, Surreal, Supernatural, and Speculative. This includes all horror, science-fiction, slipstream, all-the-punks, fantasy, myth, and strange thoughts, as long as the content is under 300-words and forms some kind of narrative. 

We are looking for stories in concentrate, although with a little pulp, too. All pieces, whether they are prose or poetry, should be under three hundred words. We find this allows writers to explore clever ideas without having to expand them beyond their natural limits, to diminish potency by stretching out a strange writ or dream-put-to-paper. In three hundreds, we want a glimpse of another world, perhaps some freak or fate or finish that stays in our thoughts all day and keeps us up all at night.

We focus on many different themes and styles but we stay close to our goal of establishing exceptional faith inspired work.

We are a quarterly literary journal that showcases the pain, beauty, turmoil, peace and emotional fire of faith and life. We are a nonprofit organization which means we cannot pay contributors but we display and rejoice in each piece of literary gold we find in the labyrinth of life and support those who go steadfast through that imminent path.

Pretty Owl Poetry is a feminist quarterly journal that publishes the visual arts, traditional and nontraditional forms, fiction masquerading as poetry, and work that does not snugly fit into a specific genre, all with a lyrical quality. We’re especially interested in work centered around the bodily experiences of womxn, nonbinary, and trans folx. We’re committed to publishing underrepresented and marginalized voices and encourage submission from such artists.
