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 Finally, submissions should be about 2000 words and previously unpublished.

We love literature. We love reading it, we love writing it, and we love talking about it. We also love delving into the "deep shelf" material of favorite authors and discovering exciting new voices. At the Midnight Oil, we seek to provide a venue where new and emerging writers can be published alongside established masters of their craft, where old favorites and new favorites collide, and you’ll find writing that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, even when you know that you really should be getting to bed.

We do not provide book reviews, pull quotes, or endorsements of any kind. We do not subscribe to any mailing lists. We do not accept submissions via e-mail. Any e-mails that fall into these categories will be deleted unread, if you would like to submit, please follow the procedures outlined on our Submit page.

Literary Mama believes that all mothers have a story worth sharing and honors the many faces of motherhood by publishing work that celebrates the journey as well as the job. We celebrate the physical, psychological, intellectual, and spiritual processes of motherhood through words and images that may be so stark it hurts. 

Each issue features creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, columns, essays, book reviews, and profiles.

What Are Birds? is a literary journal looking for work that enthralls us. We are especially excited about hybrid work that crosses genre boundaries or exists outside of genre altogether. We understand the dire need for representation and diversity and strive to be changing the trends in publishing. We strongly encourage queer, trans, nonbinary, POC, femme, neurodivergent, disabled, (and any other writers who lack representation) to submit to our journal.

April Gloaming Publishing is a Nashville-based independent press that aims to capture and better understand the Southern soul, Southern writing, and the Southern holler. 

In the words of William Faulkner, to be Southern is to, "Tell about the South. What do they do there. How do they live there. Why do they live at all." April Gloaming seeks to arrive at the conclusions to these questions through amplifying the voices of the unbridled holler.
