We haven't launched our first issue yet, but are hoping to feature mainly debut authors.

Juxta Press began by publishing limited edition artist's books from leading contemporary artists like Jimmie Durham, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, and Mariko Mori. While we do now publish literary books, the visual arts remain close to our hearts. We're looking for new voices interested in contemporary visual culture.

Take a look at our website to see the themes that Juxta Press has addressed from the viewpoint of the visual arts (we have a particular interest in questions of the afterlife, second nature, home/the domestic, the cosmos, and justice). 

How might a literary work address these same questions?

In 2020 we moved from Hilo, Hawai'i to Ithaca, New York. We are seeking poetry and hybrid prose/poetry collections and collections of short stories or lyric essays. I’d like to see more poems that gather in with “long arms,” to borrow Ellen Bass’ description of Frank X. Gaspar’s work, and more somatic awareness, like Ire’ne Lara Silva’s Blood Sugar Canto.

Please submit only in response to a call for submissions. Please use Submittable.

Representative Authors: 

Jessamyn Smyth, The Inugami Mochi. Ire'ne Lara Silva, Blood Sugar Canto. Jendi Reiter, Two Natures. Stefan Kiesbye, The Staked Plains. Ruth Thompson, Woman With Crows. Don Mitchell, A Red Woman Was Crying.

Published monthly by the editors of Creative Nonfiction magazine, each issue of True Story showcases one exceptional essay by one exceptional writer. From issue to issue, this new mini-magazine features the widest possible variety of voices and styles and subjects. Our editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines. We’re 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.

Sojourners magazine sits at the intersection of faith, politics, and culture. Our call to prophetic interrogation means we seek the truth as informed by our biblical roots. Sojourners' three key commitments are racial and social justice, life and peace, and environmental stewardship.

No more than three submissions. Poem lengths no more than 30 lines. Must fit on one print magazine page with art. We are looking for skilled poets working at the intersection of Christianity and social justice, faith and politics, spirituality and life to serve a greater common good through art and justice.

Creative Nonfiction draws heavily from unsolicited submissions. Our editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines, and it’s been our privilege to work with many fine writers early in their careers. A typical issue of CNF contains at least one essay by a previously unpublished writer. We’re 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.

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 55,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.
