Vagabonds is a literary journal that is published twice a year. We harbor the mad ones. People who are dedicated to their work to the point that they become misunderstood, or seen as a hot mess of crazy. Our journal does not seek to break boundaries, we want to break boundaries and go farther. We want the shameless—the deep dark, cigarettes and dirty words combo. Although there is not a set theme of what we’re looking for, we often look at slice-of-life works.

The Furious Gazelle is striving to provide the best collection of original writing and art from across the World Wide Web. We’re furious because we can never have enough submissions. Before you submit to the Furious Gazelle, ask yourself the following about your submission: Does it have a good story? Is it compulsively readable? Are you a living human being who has written some words? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, we encourage you to submit.

We are currently running a Spring writing contest, with no entry fee. The first prize is $50 and publication in a special print edition of the magazine. Submission guidelines at https://thefuriousgazelle.com/submit/spr...

Our next annual Halloween contest will open August 1, 2019. http://thefuriousgazelle.com/submit/hall...

We love work with strong story and style; humor is great, too. We'll consider any form of writing.

We also have a column called Things That Make Us Furious for satirical essays and rants, which we would love to receive submissions for.

We publish many first time or emerging poets.

Ekphrastic writing. All of the poetry and prose we publish in inspired by visual art. 

Read the journal! We love diverse styles of quality writing from all over the world, but if your work doesn't respond to works of visual art, we can't use it. 

If you are someone who loves visual art and loves writing about visual art, we'd love to hear from you.

Surprise us. We want nothing less than to expand and redefine exkphrasis by stretching the concept to its limits. Show us artworks we've never seen, or show us our familiar favourites from a whole new perspective.

We call ourselves an “alternative” magazine; that is to say: our purpose is to promote work that is thought-provoking and unconventional. We want the controversial and the radical, the unhinged and the bizarre; we want the obsessive, the compulsive, the pervasive, the combative, and the seductive. We believe that every work of quality art has a home where it belongs, and for the “alternative,” the Matador Review is a home.

Founded by Catherine Esposito Prescott and Jen Karetnick, SWWIM Every Day publishes one poem every weekday from women and women-identifying/femme-presenting writers of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, orientations, expressions and experience (emerging to internationally acclaimed). Poems are also delivered to in-boxes via subscription. The editors enjoy everything from prose poems to free verse to prosody; however, the digital platform excludes formatting some highly visual or extremely experimental pieces.

We welcome poems on a variety of themes or subjects. We especially like to see work that, despite its excellence, has been overlooked or excluded by the patriarchy. SWWIM stands for Supporting Women Writers in Miami, where we run a reading series, but we publish writers from all over the world. We nominate for all award anthologies and prizes. Subscribe for a poem delivered to your in-box every weekday to get a sense of our aesthetic and follow/like us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @swwimmiami where we re-post all the work and announce fee-free submission periods.

We like the experimental as well as the accessible; we love prose poems and erasures, but also sonnets and sestinas. Many people associate chapbooks with only poetry, but we're very interested in flash fiction, "literary" essays (broadly defined), memoir, novelettes/a long short story, lyric essays, and manuscripts that blend all kinds of genres together. And we love emerging writers, offering a concurrent chapbook contest just for folks who have yet to publish a chap/book, to make sure there's room for their writing in this often-competitive publishing landscape.

We are often surprised by what manuscripts we are most drawn to. We like to produce a range of different titles, and are often excited when we receive something that's a bit different in style or genre or theme than the books we already sell. We prefer the work to be thematically linked in some way.

Representative Authors: 

Emily Moore, Jason McCall, Charles Rafferty, Allie Marini, Pamela Gross, Oriana Ivy, Bernard Grant.
