Our writers take us to the places and events that changed what they believe in, changed how they see their place in the world, and changed them. Through their storytelling, they change us. We want powerful nonfiction prose written by women about the moments that segment life into before and after.

At Six Hens, the stories that we are most drawn to are the ones that appear like crocuses in the aftermath of the snowstorm because it is those stories that offer us better understanding of ourselves. We encourage writers to read some pieces from any issue to better familiarize themselves with what we're looking for. Finally, submissions should be about 2000 words and previously unpublished.

Belle Ombre is an online journal publishing fiction, non-fiction, poetry and art.

Take a look at the site before submitting. We are open to any genre or style of writing, but we do tend to veer towards the more literary. Don't be shy though – if it's good enough, we'll print it. We prefer original work, but if we think a piece can reach a new audience through us, then we're happy to republish it. We normally reply to submissions within eight weeks.

Arkana is the journal of mysteries and marginalized voices. We seek and foster a sense of shared wonder by privileging art that asks questions, explores mystery, and works to discover and uncover the overlooked, the misunderstood, and the silent.

Send us polished, insightful work that follows our guidelines, using our Submittable page. We value work that uses voices we haven't heard before or haven't heard from enough, work that asks tough questions about the world and about what it means to be human, and work that blurs the boundaries of genre. We accept work from writers with fancy MFA degrees and writers still in high school, writers from our home base in Arkansas to writers from the universe at large.

Mithila Review is an international speculative arts and culture magazine. We are open to original submissions as well as translations from around the world.

Along with original speculative fiction and poetry, we will host reviews, discussions and appreciations of stories, books, movies, television series, arts, comics, etc that explore interstitial spaces and marginal experience in the world we live today.

"Please send us your best stories. As a new market in a part of the world where none exists, where nobody expects us to publish, we cannot afford to compromise on quality.

The personal is always political. We seek to publish fiction, poetry and art that reveal, resist or address various forms of tyrannies."
