Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 100,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

These days, I do quite a bit of writing on Medium at https://medium.com/@katharinevalentino/. Please see the About section there for my bio, and please review my most recent creative nonfiction and political and self-help articles. Writing is a lonely endeavor; I'd like to be part of a community of writers who can provide constructive criticism I can use to do my best work. I will give equal time to other writers' work.

The Nebraska Review published a poem of mine in the 1980s. I was ecstatic. Shortly thereafter, The Christian Science Monitor published an op-ed I wrote titled, "Questioning Spike Lee." Then came graduate school, and the publication of a critical book review. Writing the review, I became self-conscious of employing techniques that I had acquired in my philosophy Ph.D. program. In a sense, the subjective disappointment of that writing assignment explains the fact that I am taking the time to write this at all.

I want to write myself out onto the world in a manner that forges a connection between my words and my thoughts, but also a connection between my thoughts and my readers. I find this baffling, sometimes believing that I am attempting something akin to performing open-heart surgery with a violin. I did self-publish a memoir, written while using alcohol as anesthesia, with predictable results. (I lost a child custody case in which the book was accepted as an exhibit, while my sober testimony was largely ignored.) Poetry has enabled me to come closest to realizing my writing goal, and sometimes songwriting, but I am back on the memoir horse en route to an anticipated philosophical oasis. Humbled, I'm turning in my Lone Ranger badge and looking for a likeminded, singleness-of-purpose, posse.

Oregon Humanities is a magazine about the experiences, ideas, and beliefs of Oregonians. In each issue, Oregon writers, artists, and readers explore diverse perspectives and challenging questions relating to the place we live and the people who live here. Oregon Humanities is a magazine of many voices. It embraces collaboration, learning, and multiple ways of knowing. It rejects simple explanations and single answers. It respects expertise and affirms that everyone is the leading expert of their own experiences.

Each issue of Oregon Humanities is themed, and we only consider submissions that relate to the theme. Read our current call for submissions at http://oregonhumanities.org/rll/magazine...

We generally only publish work by Oregon residents.
