Collateral is an online literary journal affiliated with the University of Washington Tacoma. We showcase high quality creative writing and art that explores the impact of the military and military service in spaces beyond the combat zone. 

We want poetry, CNF, fiction and visual art that pushes the boundaries of exploring the impact of war from a range of perspectives. Our mission is to publish work that puts a spotlight on all those spaces beyond the combat zone.

West Texas Literary Review seeks poems, essays, flash fiction, and photographs that bring value to the page. We want work that is thoughtful, deliberate, and authentic. We want work that is concrete and direct, and can justify its own existence. Think of poets like William Carlos Williams, Anne Sexton, and Nikki Giovanni. Think of essayists like George Orwell. Think of short story writers like Donald Barthelme, Octavio Paz, and Jorge Luis Borges. We want your best work and, if you send us your best work, we will treat it with respect and care.

We want work that is thoughtful, deliberate, and authentic. If the content is strong, we don't care if you are the most famous writer in the world or are submitting your very first piece.

While we encourage you to go through our archives to get a sense of our aesthetic, we can say that we generally have a preference for poetry that is written with clear intention, poetry that is dense, meaningful & artistic. Though we consider every submission, we prefer poems of average length, poems that fit on a page.

It is best to visit the FAQs section of our submissions page: ellisreview.com/submissions for further suggestions.

We seek pieces with a point of view that might not be easily published elsewhere (hence Sisyphus with his rock and his hill). While we aren’t trying to convert opposing points of view, we do hope to offer important contributions that will further discussion and even sway some people. We are looking for a high level of craft, the specific rather than the general, the instance that makes a powerful statement rather than broad political diatribe.

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.
