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 65,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

New authors make up 10% or less of each issue, but don't let that discourage you. We are interested in passionate new voices whose words and ideas hit us in the gut and leave us thinking about their work days after reading.

West Trade Review strives to put forth the best contemporary poetry, fiction, artwork, and photography and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers. Our mission is to perpetuate the work of artists both well known and yet-to-be-known, simultaneously enriching our world through the written word and visual arts. We strive to reflect diversity in style, content and perspective throughout prose, poetry, photography and other artwork. Our goal is to simply present to you the best art possible by both emerging and established creative minds.

 

We embrace diversity and like works that are edgy and affect us intellectually and emotionally. Quality of writing, style, and characterization are important to us. Please don't send us poems that rhyme, slam-style works, or dogmatically religious pieces.

Have a question abour our journal?  Don't hesitate to ask.

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?
