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 75,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

We seek storytellers—not just for fiction, but in all the genres we publish. We love clarity in art, but that doesn’t necessarily mean simplicity. Tell us a story. It could be a story in a poem, an essay, an image, but it is still a story. You tell it because it needs to be told. If you can make us feel the same way, we’ll work together to bring that story to the world.

After more than 60 years, we remain committed to publishing the best in contemporary poetry, especially work willing to take risks and push readers to the emotional and intellectual edge of what poetry makes possible. Edited and published on the lip of the Pacific Rim, adjacent to the border with Canada, and smack in the middle of a 10,000 year old site of intense human migration, our magazine is a place where poems, visual arts, and cultural commentary are orchestrated to bring to the printed page a robust awareness and investigation of this complex and interwoven life.

Current editor Keetje Kuipers has said, "I'm interested in accepting poems that I struggle with, that I don't understand, that I might even fundamentally disagree with in terms of either their craft or simply the argument they're making about the state of the world." Founding editor Carolyn Kizer placed a special emphasis on encouraging the "raw, emerging talents, the neglected and overlooked." Our dedication to employing equitable editorial practices that emphasize the rich diversity of today's poets enhances our mission of publishing the most exciting work we can find.

Please See Me is an online literary journal that features health-related stories. The mission of the publication is to elevate voices and stories of vulnerable and underserved populations and those who care for them. At the heart of this publication is the cultivation of meaningful patient–provider partnerships in the spirit of wellness. To that end, we will publish work written by patients, family members, creatives, caregivers, and providers; anyone with a health-related tale to tell is invited to submit.

Each issue of Please See Me has a theme, though we consider any health-related story during this inflection point in time, and we encourage diverse voices to submit. Our Winter 2020 Issue #6 theme is "Bias" reflecting the need to curate narratives engendering empathy and understanding of those marginalized. Bias is widespread, touches all of us, and includes race, religion, physical appearance, age, mental/physical illness, social status and more.
