Thurston Howl Publications is a small progressive publishing house in Lansing, Michigan. We have specialized in animal fiction and evocative literature.

The best way to appeal to any of our editors is to move them in a certain way. Your horror should terrify; your fantasy amaze; your erotica arouse; your political lit intrigue.

Representative Authors: 

Some of our namesake authors include Alan Gordon, David Clement-Davies, Catherynne Valente, Kyell Gold, and Fred Patten.

We seek pieces with a point of view that might not be easily published elsewhere (hence Sisyphus with his rock and his hill). While we aren’t trying to convert opposing points of view, we do hope to offer important contributions that will further discussion and even sway some people. We are looking for a high level of craft, the specific rather than the general, the instance that makes a powerful statement rather than broad political diatribe.

Appalachia welcomes narrative, historical, and science essays on the following topics: mountain, wilderness, and backcountry adventure; technical climbing; canoeing and kayaking; nature and climate change; and land ethics. We work far ahead and publish twice a year.

We consider it our mission to encourage and work with new writers. One way to catch my attention is submit your best work to our annual essay contest sponsored by the Waterman Fund with a $1500 prize. We often publish writers whose work caught our eye but did not win.

indicia seeks to showcase a dynamic collage of passionate and profound voices hungry to produce art and write primarily in the English language. indicia enjoys feeling out the lengths to which language can be stretched, whether to convey a feeling, an experience, a humorous observation, a dire lesson, or whatever else a literary spirit needs to say.

We're focused on showcasing diverse writers because we want to give a platform for stories told from new perspectives, particularly if they are told by marginalized voices. We're not concerned with credentials in terms of prior publications or degrees. Instead, we look for quality writing that stands out, whether it's from a seasoned author or emerging writer.

We recommend reading stories that we have already published to get a feel for the type of narratives we prefer. We also really appreciate crisp, well-revised manuscripts. Other than that, the best way to impress us is by submitting a unique story that leaves a lasting impression.
