IHRAF Publishes is a growing platform for writers to submit poetry, creative nonfiction, short fiction, essays or any other format that comes from the heart, and focuses on social and activist themes. We base our work on the values of beauty, sincerity, vulnerability and engagement.
All submissions should be under 500 words each. You may submit up to four pieces for consideration at one time. We are currently accepting submissions via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
IHRAF Publishes is a platform for optimism, hope, and love -- not anger or hate. Consider our values as themes: beauty, sincerity, vulnerability, and engagement.
Big Other welcomes submissions in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, lyric essay, art, video, drama, cross-genre, reviews, interviews, book excerpts, and craft essays. We are especially interested in innovative art, literary and otherwise. Big Other seeks to publish diverse voices, including works by women, people of color, and people who are transgender, disabled, indigenous, international, and/or other artists and writers underrepresented in literary magazines.
Syndicated celebrates the art of television through people’s unique perspectives, insights, and experiences. We’re more analysis than review, more individual than far-reaching, and more you than the hunk of metal you watch on. If a show, episode, scene, character, or quote had an effect on your life in any way, we want to hear about it. Maybe a show helped you understand mental illness, or maybe something about television just made you feel less alone. So stop channel-flipping for a second; broadcast your story.
Feel free to pitch an idea or send in a finished piece. We also have several ongoing columns you may submit to; visit our submissions page for more details and inspiration.

The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery and collected conversation. The first priority of the Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel.
