The South Carolina Review reimagines the Southern Literary Magazine. We’re expanding our range to encompass the best of contemporary literature from various perspectives, and we want to reflect the diverse experiences of our readers and writers by publishing affecting, thought-provoking work from both new and established writers from a wide background. Writers receive two contributor copies. Top fiction and poetry submissions as deemed by the editors will receive an award of $250.

SCR publishes fiction and poetry primarily, but will also consider creative nonfiction, scholarly essays, and book reviews. We prefer electronic submissions (in PDF format only), though printed manuscripts may be mailed in accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope. No previously published work, work accepted elsewhere, or multiple submissions accepted. Please note that we cannot acknowledge receipt of manuscripts and that we cannot return manuscripts under any conditions.

As a startup, we began with word of mouth and the reach of new media. Both editors have been teaching at the City University of New York for over a decade, and see our influence inflected by the work of our colleagues at the university—as diverse a constituency as can be imagined—as well as by our students themselves, some of whom have published with us. We are interested in writers from Borges to Lafcadio Hearn to Esmeralda Santiago, Ariel Dorfman to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to you, threading a diaspora of difference.

So far, a majority of writers we've published have been first-time writers, in keeping with our editorial mission.

Please see our complete editorial statement here: http://www.flatbushreview.com/editorial-statement.html. We welcome all arts and approaches, and strive to be as inclusive and diverse in our approaches as the words linked through our namesake avenue in Brooklyn, although we are not limited to that physical landscape. It's a Coney Island of the mind, after all.

See our editorial focus, and look over our online issues at flabushreview.com. We're open to anything, not bounded by the literal geography of Brooklyn but by the conceptual complexity represented by its internal artery, Flatbush Avenue. Each issue has a kind of theme, always loosely and imaginatively interpreted, or ignored altogether (although it might inform our decision-making on a particular issue, and we will always consider all submissions for future issues). The point is to be as searching and challenging, reflective and reaching as possible, connecting worlds, geographies, topographies of the mind, spirit, and body as widely as we can, with that O'Haraean grace to live as variously as possible. We want to open dialogues, not foreclose possibilities.

We are seeking beautifully-written, imaginative, and original short stories by new and veteran writers. Our favorite kinds of stories are those that are still emotionally haunting long after their plots have slipped from our memories, the fingerprints of their ghosts left behind on our day-to-day lives. 

Please read Submission Guidelines carefully.

Established by combat veterans and maintained by a diverse board of veterans, military spouses, and writers compelled by themes of social justice and human resilience, the Wrath-Bearing Tree publishes essays, reviews, fiction, and poetry on military, economic, and social violence written by those who have experienced military, economic, and social violence or their consequences. 

We seek to expand the conversation around violence, conflict, and war. We especially like work that is thoughtful and balanced when it comes to questions of diversity.

Night Picnic is a bilingual journal of literature and art which publishes work in both English and Russian. We translate our authors' work into Russian. We accept novels, novellas, plays, short and flash stories, fairytales for adults, poetry, interviews, essays (including popular science essays), letters to the editors, and artwork. 

We encourage authors to submit all that is strange, dark, jubilant, complex, confusing, scary, mystical, and multidimensional. We do NOT publish memoirs, heavy science fiction, political essays, and pornography. We do NOT publish manuscripts with chauvinistic and fascistic tendencies. You must be at least 18 years old to submit.
