VAINE is an online literary and arts magazine for and by emerging artists and writers.

The focus of its issues is on topical themes. Contributors are also welcome to present work about any relevant current events. 

It aims to give a voice and a start to emerging writers and artists who may not have been published previously.

It publishes poetry, short fiction, features (independent journalism/interviews, etc.), and art. 

The editors currently pay £20 to each contributor whose work is placed in their magazine.

Please read our submission guidelines carefully before submitting. These can be found on our website. We only accept submissions via email.

Novel Slices is dedicated solely to novel excerpts. These excerpts should feel like they come from novels that want to be read—they may pop readers into the action and leave them hanging at the end. They do not have to feel 'complete' or read like a short story! Each issue includes 5 winning excerpts from two annual contests (March to April, and September to October).

Each issue has a guest judge. Look at their novel(s) for an idea of styles they may be most interested in, but remember that we also push our judges to look at all genres and styles!

Emma Komlos-Hrobsky

Hello! I'm Emma, a writer, illustrator, and editor who tells stories at the intersection of the human and the fantastic. My writing has appeared in Tin HouseGuernica, Hunger Mountain, Conjunctions, Book Forum, and the Story Collider, and often combines word and image to create narrative through maps, mail art, comics, and forms beyond category. I have particular interest in the ways the ideas of science can provide new means of relating human experience and am at work on a novel about particle physics, family, and the Alps.

An alumni of Wesleyan, I earned my MFA in fiction at the New School. For nine years, I served as an editor at Tin House, most recently as a senior editor for its magazine and associate editor for its books division. I've also taught writing as a professor at the New School and as guest faculty at Fairleigh Dickinson, Colgate, UConn, Writers @ Work, NYU, the Tin House Craft Intensives, and other universities and festivals. I currently serve as associate editor at Poets & Writers magazine.

Flare is an international literary journal founded by a dedicated group of young writers, photographers, and artists to explore the complexity of the human experience. Its mission is to encourage artists and writers of all backgrounds to express themselves, and the editors strongly believe that sharing art lifts and connects regardless of age or location. They hope that their journal is able to empower through that mission.

We applaud work that is loud, expressive, and sincere. We look for honest storytelling that explores the diversity of the human experience. Please keep in mind that our magazine caters to a wide range of ages, and adhere to all submission guidelines.
