For over a decade, Relief has helped shape the landscapes of faith and imagination for readers around the world. It features fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, graphic narrative, and reviews by some of today’s finest literary practitioners, alongside emerging voices.

Relief eschews tidy “inspirational” writing that represses the troublesome and complex dimensions of our lives. Instead, it is dedicated to human flourishing through literature.

Above all, we want to be surprised, even thrilled, by work of artistic excellence—writing that shows the highest embodiment of craft while having something of deep importance to say.

Anomaly is an international journal of literature and the arts. It provides a platform for works of art that challenge conventions of form and format, of voice and genre. Anomaly is committed to actively seeking out and promoting the work of marginalized and underrepresented artists, including especially people of color, women, queer, differently abled, and gender nonconforming artists.

We're especially interested in work that uses the medium of the web as part of its compositional strategy. And we look kindly on those who support the arts online (tax-deductible donations) and have some sense of the difference between print and web paradigms. Send us your best, most challenging work.

Creative Nonfiction draws heavily from unsolicited submissions. Its editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines. A typical issue of CNF contains at least one essay by a previously unpublished writer. The magazine is open to all types of creative nonfiction, from immersion reportage to personal essay to memoir.

Please do send work that blends style with substance, and reaches beyond the personal to tell us something new about the world. We're drawn to stories that balance a strong narrative (i.e. something happens) with a teaching or reflective element (i.e. the something that happens matters for some reason). Please do include your complete contact information and keep us informed of the status of simultaneous submissions. Please don't send poetry.
