Another New Calligraphy has enjoyed the quiet thrill of making and sharing since 2009. ANC guides writers and musicians in the realization of their work via the production of quality books and musics; the online journal Impossible Task showcases additional creative achievements.

Another New Calligraphy hopes to deliver small acts of wonder while facilitating an appreciation of unique experiences and perspectives. Our catalog strives to showcase diverse voices while honoring the stories they tell and the communities they represent.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work exploring the human experience, our internal worlds, and life among others; these complex systems are often clearest in our slightest moments. Please familiarize yourself with recent projects for a general sense of these themes and their past expression.

While the catalog's niche may seem primarily poetic, other modes of expression are more than welcome. The press is always on the lookout for more music and nonfiction, as well as further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy as a home for their work.

Red Flag Poetry is a postcard project that aims to deliver poetry to the mailbox of subscribers every month on a postcard. It looks for poetry that is creative, original, and well crafted. It wants to see poems that critically reflect life.

Please limit each poem to 22 lines maximum with no more than 50 characters per line. These guidelines are somewhat flexible, but keep in mind this has to go on a 4x6 postcard.

Want to send us your poems outside of the open reading period? Well, you can do that, but to keep things moving we have to charge $3 per submission. Please note that our open reading periods are open in November and April but responses will take 3-4 months.

The Letters Page literary journal is published by the University of Nottingham School of English, and edited by writer in residence, Professor Jon McGregor. It is interested in exploring what letter writing means to people—and has meant since writing was invented—in their literary cultures and their personal lives. It publishes essays, memoirs, fiction, travelogue, reportage, poetry, criticism, interviews… any creative form of writing, so long as it comes to us framed as a letter.

• The letter should be handwritten on a single side of A4 (or your local equivalent), and sent in the post, with a return address on the back of the envelope. • You may include illustrations. • Enclose contact details on a separate sheet. A transcript may be requested. • The letter should be addressed to a notional ‘reader’ (and should balance the tone of address between the ‘collective’ reader of a journal and the ‘individual’ reader of a forwarded letter); the letter should not address or refer to the editor. • The letter should include some reference to the time/place of its writing and/or sending. • Your submission should be postmarked with a date no later than the stated deadline for submissions.

A visitant is a visitor from another realm—a specter, a psychopomp, or a transitory creature, like a pilgrim or bird. Visitants pop up throughout literature as ghosts, as fits of madness, and as omens. In nature, a visitant takes on a different meaning: a migratory bird that has come to a place temporarily; a cicada that rises from the soil every seventeen years. Visitant creates a space where you and your temporary visitors—your stories, your words—might rest, grow stronger, and be shared. Send your work! 

We are accepting submissions of poetry (text and / or multimedia recordings or video), flash fiction, serialized fiction, and nonfiction essays. Submissions should be limited to 1,500 words. If you are interested in submitting a longer piece, we may still be able to publish it in serialized format (please see this example: https://visitantlit.com/2016/06/21/a-cov...). Please send all submissions to visitantlit AT gmail DOT com. Please attach your submission as a Word document and include a short biographical statement in the body of your email in third person.

Exit 13 Magazine is a travelogue in poetry, a reflection of the world and a chronicle of the people and places encountered along the way. Since 1988, the emphasis has been on geography and the fertile ground of the imagination.

Contributors need to be patient. This is a one-man operation, with technical help from my wife and daughter. Photos of “exit 13” road signs are welcome. Payment is one copy of issue if poem or photo is used. New issue in June with roughly 50 poets.

We're open to reading poems about your travels, adventures and geographic experiences. The reading period is June through January.
