Narrative Northeast is a literary and arts magazine dedicated to diverse voices and visions, to creating a platform for writers who actually have something to say.

With our editorial picks, we’re hoping to help to break down or mitigate the insistent voice of mono-culture. NN is looking for diverse, playful, edgy, socially aware voices, feminist, LBGT, and straight. However, any topic or theme is acceptable for NN, as we see the arts in general as a powerful catalyst for change.

No greeting card, overly sentimental, or cliched submissions. We’re looking for strong imagery and strong voices in our writers.

We are predominantly an environmentally-focused publisher of novels, poetry, memoir, essays, and some science writing. Our list is nature-based and environmental, and our practice is sustainable publishing and printing our books using vegetable inks, FSC-certified papers, and printers in the United States: Bookmobile, McNaughton & Gunn, etc. We now have a Hybrid Publishing Model that is a publishing partnership between the author and/or organization, and our small press.

We mostly publish novels that impart environmental-social justice themes. Poems that focus on nature and the urgency with which we need to save our planet, are appreciated. We are also interested in short stories—again, a collection with an environmentally-themed thread that runs throughout. Our non-fiction list is broader and includes memoirs, science-based writing, education, and spirituality. 

Representative Authors: 

Greg Delanty, Robin MacArthur, Leland Kinsey, Patti A. Smith, Brian D. Cohen, Holiday Eames, Brian Adams, Jade Beall, Hollie McNish, Don Bredes, Howard Frank Mosher

Cordite Poetry Review is a quarterly Australian journal of poetry and its criticism. International authors are most welcome. Each issue is themed (broadly), so please be sure to look at our submissions page. Cordite Scholarly is a fully refereed section of the journal, dedicated to research.

We are interested in all formats of poetry. Just because Word can center a poem in your document, doesn't mean it should. Please read our issues for an idea of what we publish. Each of our issues is guest-edited by a different poet. Submissions are always read blind.
