The Museum of Americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.
We seek work that engages with or repurposes the complex cultural history of America—original and previously unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, writer interviews, music, photography, and art. Give us fiction that dramatizes weird old folk songs or steals their characters. Give us love poetry that mixes language cribbed from The Federalist Papers with language cribbed from WWII propaganda posters.
Barren Magazine is a literary publication that features fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and photography for hard truths, long stares, and gritty lenses. We revel in the shadow-spaces that make up the human condition, and aim to find antitheses to that which defines us: light in darkness; beauty in ugliness; peace in disarray. We invite you to explore it with us.
After the Art seeks personal review essays that explore the ways reading can enrich the experience of looking at art. Each essay must be about a piece of art as well as a written text.
Mount Island is dedicated to supporting rural LGBTQ and POC writers and artists, whether rural by birth or at heart. We seek:
- Prose and poems that buck the standard. Any genre, whether traditional or invented.
- Art that liberates vision. Any medium, whatever can be displayed digitally.
- Interviews, reviews, and articles that follow passion and further connection.
We love literature. We love reading it, we love writing it, and we love talking about it. We also love delving into the "deep shelf" material of favorite authors and discovering exciting new voices. At the Midnight Oil, we seek to provide a venue where new and emerging writers can be published alongside established masters of their craft, where old favorites and new favorites collide, and you’ll find writing that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, even when you know that you really should be getting to bed.
