Rivet publishes writing that breaks from the mainstream to surprise, challenge, and delight. Each issue brings together poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that test the boundaries of form and content--a surrealist sestina followed by a lyric essay on multiracial identity then a flash fiction set in humanity’s far future--the intersections as intriguing as the works themselves. Rivet writers explore their craft fearlessly and thoughtfully, and our editors are dedicated to providing them with a professional venue for publishing experimental work.

We are interested in: surreal, fabulist, and remix aesthetics; political and controversial topics; hybrid and multimedia things that play well online; literary takes on popular genres; reviews of books/media and interviews of people that would be of interest to our audience. We are not interested in: shock value alone; middle class ennui. Most of all, surprise us with something we’ve never seen before, that moves and reveals. We believe in the author-editor relationship, and we work with each writer to fully realize their vision. If that’s something you are as excited about as we are, then we want to read your work.

Clade Song is a space dedicated to the literary examination of the animal world and all of its behavioral niches from the bacterial mat to the predation of the auk, all of which impact and interrelate with the humanosphere.

At Clade Song we are interested in the evolution of poetry from the phoneme outwards, from raw, exclamatory yelping to the insect hymns sung to enshrine the concrete and the nonce.

Please submit up to a total of 5 previously unpublished poems, .mp3 files, or compressed video files.

• Poems should be typed in an easy-to-read 12 point font.

• If your poem(s) is/are over one page in length, please indicate stanza breaks between pages.

Exit 13 Magazine is a travelogue in poetry, a reflection of the world we see 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 May with roughly 50 poets.

BlazeVOX is a haven for undervalued writers to convene with readers worldwide, delivering the contemporary through books-in-hand and ebooks-in-a-minute. Articles of submission depend on many criteria, but overall items submitted must conform to one ethereal trait, your work must not suck. This put plainly, bad art should be punished; we will not promote it. However, all submissions will be reviewed and the author will receive feedback. We are human too. Please send your work.

Each issue of Ecotone brings together the literary and scientific, the personal and biological, the urban and rural. Much of the writing we publish addresses the idea of place—overlapping habitats both real and aesthetic. We aim to bridge the gap between science and culture, to break out of the pen of the purely literary and wander freely among the disciplines.
