The Scores is the literary journal of the University of St Andrews, under an advisory team of esteemed professors and instructors, including Don Paterson, Robert Crawford, Kathleen Jamie, Oli Hazzard, and Peter McKay. We seek to publish a very wide range of poetry (as can be seen in our current issue) in English and the languages of Scotland, along with poems translated into English and reviews of recent work in our bi-annual issues. We like work that thrills, work that moves, work that plays along the cliff edge.

Pretty Owl Poetry is a feminist quarterly journal that publishes the visual arts, traditional and nontraditional forms, fiction masquerading as poetry, and work that does not snugly fit into a specific genre, all with a lyrical quality. We’re especially interested in work centered around the bodily experiences of womxn, nonbinary, and trans folx. We’re committed to publishing underrepresented and marginalized voices and encourage submission from such artists.

The Saranac Review is committed to dissolving boundaries of all kinds, seeking to publish a diverse array of emerging and established writers from the United States, Canada and the rest of the world. The journal strives to be a textual clearing in which a space is opened for literary cross-pollination. We aim to publish diverse voices, a literal "cluster of stars," an illumination of the Iroquois roots of our namesake, the word, Saranac.

Our editorial scope is eclectic, and open to all styles, but we are looking for work that is literary, engaging, well crafted and has resonance. We are not interested in genre fiction (e.g. Sci fiction; horror, etc.) or light verse. We suggest that any writer interested in submitting work read a copy of the journal. Buy a digital copy for $4.95 from our website or obtain a sample issue for $5.95. The Saranac Review is an annual so there is a relatively long time between acceptance and publication.

MORIA is a national online literary magazine with an all-student editorial board, based at Woodbury University in greater Los Angeles. We accept poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from emerging and established writers in the United States and across the world. We publish twice-a-year, in the late fall and late spring.

While we accept all styles — including experimental, hybrid, and conventional forms — we aren’t interested in submissions of light verse, genre fiction, and any piece that references gratuitous violence or exploitative sexual imagery. We’re committed to publishing a diverse range of poets and writers. In our debut issue (2017), 73% of our authors were women and 24% were writers of color. We also published pieces from writers in their 20s to writers in their 70s — and every decade in between. We welcome work from traditionally under-represented groups, including women writers, indigenous writers, writers of color, writers who identify as LGBTQ, and writers with disabilities.

Evening Street Press is centered on Elizabeth Cady Stanton's 1848 revision of the Declaration of Independence: "that all men -- and women -- are created equal," with equal rights to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." It focuses on the realities of experience, personal and historical, from the most gritty to the most dreamlike, including awareness of the personal and social forces that block or develop the possibilities of this new culture.

We try to report within two to six months for the review.

We publish 52 poems each year; one per week in the Catholic Poetry Room feature.

Catholics, many of whom are new to poetry.

We accept both new and previously-published poetry and are looking for poems that are accessible to the average Catholic and show a strong connection between faith and everyday life, or break open Scripture in a new way for the reader. Many readers will not have read any poetry since high school. As you consider poems that might fit on the site, consider them through the eyes of someone new to poetry.

There's no compensation for poetry published on the site, although we will include a 200-word bio that includes a link to your website. We can also include attribution for where the poem was originally published. The reach and readership of IntegratedCatholicLife.org is significant.
