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 80,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

I live in a semi-rural part of Pennsylvania.  I'm interested in critiquing others' poetry in my areas of interest (formal, nature, political and regional poetry) and in having others with similar interests critique my own poetry.

Creative Nonfiction draws heavily from unsolicited submissions. Our editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines, and it’s been our privilege to work with many fine writers early in their careers. A typical issue of CNF contains at least one essay by a previously unpublished writer. We’re open to all types of creative nonfiction, from immersion reportage to personal essay to memoir.

Please do send work that blends style with substance, and reaches beyond the personal to tell us something new about the world. We're drawn to stories that balance a strong narrative (i.e. something happens) with a teaching or reflective element (i.e. the something that happens matters for some reason). Please do include your complete contact information and keep us informed of the status of simultaneous submissions. Please don't send poetry.

I'm an outdoor writer and environmental journalist. I'm a member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America, and teach a graduate class in environmental journalism at Dartmouth College. I also administer the Robert Traver Fly Fishing Writing Award for the John D. Voelker Foundation and the American Museum of Fly Fishing.

I've published two books about fly fishing. The Confluence is a group memoir co-written with six lifelong friends from college. Storied Waters is a narrative about a six-week trip to fly fish in waters made famous in literature and art. I write a monthly column called The Sporting Environment for the Maine Sportsman magazine.

My current project is a departure from outdoor writing and environmental issues (mostly). As of April 2021, I am finishing the first draft of a historical novel called Papscanee about the Dutch colony of Rensselaerswyck in the Hudson River valley during the 1640s near present day Albany. As my first foray into fiction, I am looking for feedback on my storytelling, characters and dialogue. I also want to depict the Native American characters and culture with respect and accuracy, overcoming the strong European colonial and religious bias in the historical record.

My goal is to bring this fascinating period of American history alive to a wider audience. The novel includes fictional and historical characters and imagines the daily lives and interactions between the Dutch colonists and the Mohawk and Mohican Indians amidst actual events based on the documented records of the period (1640s). The two protagonists are Annatje, a young Dutch woman, who becomes friends and trading partners with Capachick, a young Mohican man. Annatje and her husband Jacobus are farmers and fur traders near Papscanee Island. After a flood kills their neighbors, Annatje and Jacobus adopt their friends' orphan children and move their family from their farm to Beverwyck (later Albany) to build an inn and tavern. Historical Dutch characters include Kiliean van Rensselaer, Arendt van Curler, Adriaen van der Donck, Willem Kieft, Peter Stuyvesant and Brant van Slichtenhorst. Historical Indian characters include Papsikenekas, Skiwias (Aepjen), Canaqueese and Agheroense. 

I anticipate writing a sequel about Beverwyck in the 1650s and 1660s.

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, and creative nonfiction (memoir/personal essays) and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers.  We are committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and want to hear from underrepresented voices of all types.

We like works that are edgy and affect us intellectually and emotionally.   We want poems , creative nonfiction (memoir/personal essays), and stories that make the reader think and feel, work that humbles us with its joy, humor, embarrassment, anger, hope, grief, or all of the above. We gravitate toward exquisitely crafted writing that has something important to teach us--something that readers really need to know, but might not have understood this was a need until the last word of the work.  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.
