We are the Metaworker, a literary blog (or lit magazine on the internet) created by millenials, for millenials.

We started out as a group of recent graduates from Chapman University, where we were editors of the on-campus literary magazine, the Calliope. It’s been two years since then, and we’ve been publishing poetry, fiction, and nonfiction from a variety of submitters every Monday. Our goal is simply to publish things that we, and our target audience, find interesting. So far, we feel we’ve done a pretty good job.

Our guidelines are intentionally loose, and while we have a “wish list” of certain types of submissions we’re very interested in, we’re willing to look at pretty much anything. We especially love unusual submissions that defy our expectations.

Arkana is the journal of mysteries and marginalized voices. We seek and foster a sense of shared wonder by publishing inclusive art that asks questions, explores mystery, and works to make visible the marginalized, the overlooked, and those whose voices have been silenced.

Send us polished, thought-provoking literary work that follows our guidelines, using our Submittable page. We value work that uses voices we haven't heard before or haven't heard from enough, work that asks tough questions about the world and about what it means to be human, and work that blurs the boundaries of genre. We accept work from writers with MFA degrees and writers still in high school, writers from our home base in Arkansas to writers from the universe at large.

Brevity publishes well-known and emerging writers working in the extremely brief (750 words or less) essay form. We have featured work from two Pulitzer prize finalists, many NEA fellows, Pushcart winners, Best American authors, and writers from India, Egypt, Ireland, Spain, Malaysia, Qatar, and Japan. We have also featured numerous previously unpublished authors, and take a special joy in helping to launch a new literary career.

Everything is dialed up in a shorter piece. You need to move in and out of scene quickly, you need to introduce language, diction, and rhythm immediately, and you need to establish place, character, and conflict right away – usually in the first sentence. The first paragraph of a brief essay has to do what the first chapter of a memoir does.

Breathe Free Press is an online magazine of resistance and awareness, dedicated to literary essayism testing patterns of perception attentive to language and cultural associations: Essays that subvert imposed constraints of genre conventions.

 

Breathe Free Press seeks essays that allude, intimate, insinuate, attempt, analyze, critique, express, transform and transgress meta narratives of authority and power structures. We welcome, generous, graceful conscious writing. We are equally interested in hearing from emerging and established writers. Please include a cover letter to acquaint the editors with the author behind the work. We understand and encourage simultaneous submissions, but please share your good news of acceptance elsewhere.

We consider poetry and fiction in any style. Please limit poetry submissions to no more than five poems at a time and place all poems in a single document. We are interested in creative nonfiction (memoir and personal essay) with contemporary themes. No literary criticism. Though there is no specific word or page count for fiction or creative nonfiction, Blue Earth Review is most interested in works that are under 3,000 words.
