Not Your Mothers Breast Milk is an art blog dedicated to sharing stories about the human experience, connecting with one another, and giving artists an outlet to express their struggles and successes on this journey through life.
We're looking for something that makes us feel. It can make us feel joy, sadness, anger, silliness, etc, etc. Just make us feel something.
Have a piece that you love that maybe needs a little more work? Send it in! Our editing team will look it over and give you feedback about how you could make it stronger! When submitting, put "Tweak" in the subject line to let us know you want feedback on it!
You’re a writer. We like writers. Writers like being read, and we like to read. Ergo (ergo!), if you send us writing, we’re going to see eye-to-eye pretty easily. Send us your coolest, deepest, most fun, most emotionally power-packed prose, poetry, or hybrid genre-bending triumph of autotheory. We’ll read it.
Fiction: We’re looking for compelling characters, plots that surprise us, narratives that move us, stories that have something new to say.
Poetry: We love poems that are lyrical without being overwrought, and are profound without being pretentious. We look for honesty of emotion, and images that arrest us.
Non-Fiction: We are looking for real-life experiences told as riveting narratives with distinct voices. We publish essays that feel artful and true.

The Swamp Ape is a legend that reflects Florida—its mythology, its weirdness—as well as the human desire to create a narrative around that which we can’t explain. Submissions to the Swamp should defy form to the extent that the piece’s creator might be unsure of where it belongs. Across all genres, we encourage pieces with a hybrid or non-traditional nature—works that subvert our expectations of both content and form and unsettle our assumptions of what is possible.
Easy Street provides writers a venue to showcase their work, to discuss the publishing industry, and to share viewpoints on diverse aspects of contemporary life and culture.
Confront THAT, a whirlwind of poetry, prose, creative nonfiction, and visuals to entertain and amaze. THAT tickles the curiosity and baffles expectations. THAT looks into dark closets and gazes, slack-jawed, at the stars. THAT surprises and satisfies. Be prepared for the mysterious and the wonderful.
Please look over our submissions guidelines pages carefully, then take a stroll through our pages, virtual or real, before submitting. There's a sensibility that runs through the poetry, prose, and visuals that we try to cultivate, and material that reflects that insightful and sometimes strange perspective is particularly welcomed.
We’re looking for work that’s bizarre, authentic, subtle, outrageous, indefinable, raw, paradoxical. We’ve got our eyes on the horizon. Send us writing that lives just between the land and the sky.
Please note that we accept simultaneous submissions (and appreciate acknowledgement of such submissions), but do not accept reprints/previously published work. Please include a third-person bio in your cover letter. For examples of the work we tend to publish, please consult our current issue and online archives.
POST(blank) is a bilingual word-art publication, in which we curate a dialogue between the visual and literary arts. We look for any works that either attempt to, and can be used to, create a dialogue between these two media.
Take a careful look at our submission guidelines and attempt to follow the theme. However, DO NOT be afraid to freely interpret the theme in any way that makes sense to you. We are looking for all people willing to help us fully dissect every possibility available in each issue's theme.
