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 Finally, submissions should be about 2000 words and previously unpublished.

NILVX (nil-lux) is a quarterly anthology of magic(k), mysticism, and the occult.  We bring together the work of writers and artists from around the world to amplify magical themes and symbols through ritual, poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, and art.   The survived history of magic and the occult is built upon a legacy of artists and visionaries, and whether you are drawn to the Mysteries or actively involved with the magical community, NILVX offers a platform to build upon that legacy in word, image, and idea.

MORIA is a national online literary magazine with an all-student editorial board, based at Woodbury University in greater Los Angeles. We accept poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from emerging and established writers in the United States and across the world. We publish once-a-year, in the late fall.

While we accept all styles — including experimental, hybrid, and conventional forms — we aren’t interested in submissions of light verse, genre fiction, and any piece that references gratuitous violence or exploitative sexual imagery. We’re committed to publishing a diverse range of poets and writers. In our debut issue (2017), 73% of our authors were women and 24% were writers of color. We also published pieces from writers in their 20s to writers in their 70s — and every decade in between. We welcome work from traditionally under-represented groups, including women writers, indigenous writers, writers of color, writers who identify as LGBTQ, and writers with disabilities.

In Layman's Terms publishes poetry, creative nonfiction, and interviews from around the world with the intention of bridging the gap between academia and the average person, or even the gap between different branches of academia itself. It is meant to inspire a curiosity for learning about science, the natural world, and technology.

Please pay attention to the submission guidelines and the current theme. We suggest reading past issues to get a feel for what we're going for, but also because we think there are some pretty neat pieces of writing and art, and our contributors deserve some attention.

Embodying the obsolete word it was named after, Apricity aims to manifest the feeling of the warmth of the sun in the winter in all that it publishes. Established in 2015, Apricity Press was created to fill an immense void in the publishing world. While there are a myriad of presses, literary journals and magazines, many lack the ability to publish multi-genre works, especially dance works. Because of this, Apricity constructed a space where incredible literary, art and dance works could be published side by side, showcasing the tremendous connections between the forms. 

When submitting to Apricity, please follow our submission guidelines carefully!

MORTAR MAGAZINE evolves the idea that writing can and should be incisive, coming in at the edges, doing that elusive something that makes us question motive, genre, meaning, or narrative itself.

While we accept any prose or poetry submissions, we have a soft spot in our hearts for of-the-moment writing, in the sense of experimental forms and new voices. 

We are very much a new publication and as such, we are flexible in terms of content and open-minded in terms of submissions. We hope to discover work that will define the magazine, not the other way around.

Convivium, a journal of arts, culture, and testimony, is dedicated to exploring our common grounds and lonely places, our epiphanies and dark nights - through poetry, fiction, essays, and the visual arts. 

Please email submissions to convivium.journal@gmail.com. Your work should be sent as an attachment. 

We publish in Garamond, so that font is preferred for written work, but not required.

Please put no identifying information on the body of your submission, as all work will be blind-reviewed by the editorial committee.

Do, please, include a short author bio in the body of your email, however. 

Previously unpublished work only, please.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but if your work is accepted elsewhere, please let us know immediately.

You may submit up to five poems, or works of visual art. Stories or essays should be under 4,000 words each.

At Blood Tree Literature, we look for lyrical and resonant works of flash fiction and nonfiction, poetry, experimentals and hybrids that take linguistic risks to push the boundaries of conventional language and genre. So send along the box under your bed marked UNSHARABLE; the orphan poem or black-sheep fiction. Jar, arrest us.

Please review our submission guidelines before submitting.
