The Lark firmly believes that the ubiquity of the internet is not a reason to accept diminished quality in publications or to skip supporting contributors. We seek to publish what’s risky, critical, musical, philosophical, playful, experimental, sexy, or deadly serious. Sometimes we publish the bells and blossoms, and sometimes we publish the dark underbelly. 

Above all, we seek to be moved. 

We recommend that you look through our previous issues to get a sense of the Lark. Our guidelines are left intentionally expansive, but we take craft seriously and are drawn to work that feels honest in some way.

Mortar Magazine evolves the idea that writing can and should be incisive, coming in at the edges, doing that elusive something that makes us question motive, genre, meaning, or narrative itself.

While we accept any prose or poetry submissions, we have a soft spot in our hearts for of-the-moment writing, in the sense of experimental forms and new voices. 

We are very much a new publication and as such, we are flexible in terms of content and open-minded in terms of submissions. We hope to discover work that will define the magazine, not the other way around.

We’re particularly interested in themes of space and place, things that change and things that don’t, the spots we share and the ones we keep to ourselves. Where do you go when you need peace? Where do you go when you need to be loud? What moments and what places do you find yourself returning to over and over again? What brings you back to yourself and what lets you rise above the things that try to bring you down? Share with us your political and your personal, your faith, identity, love and loss, truths and dreams.

Looking for impactful fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and black and white art for a magazine that tends towards quirky, whimsical, from-the-heart pieces that connect us to the world and each other.

Mithila Review is an international speculative arts and culture magazine. We are open to original submissions as well as translations from around the world.

Along with original speculative fiction and poetry, we will host reviews, discussions and appreciations of stories, books, movies, television series, arts, comics, etc that explore interstitial spaces and marginal experience in the world we live today.

Please send us your best stories. As a new market in a part of the world where none exists, where nobody expects us to publish, we cannot afford to compromise on quality.

The personal is always political. We seek to publish fiction, poetry and art that reveal, resist or address various forms of tyrannies.

Iceview Magazine is a nonprofit, bilingual literary and art publication based in Iceland. We publish biannual collections of creative writing, critical inquiry, and visual art concerning travel, tourism, geographies, and movement.

We are a travel-focused publication especially interested in work that investigates the motivations behind travel, migration, and voluntary exile as they relate to art-making and creativity. We look for thoughtful meditations on the implications of leisure travel at large (in any form), acknowledging it as an act that both ruptures and changes the equilibrium of communities, cities, and nations for better and worse.

We’re big readers, so we admire pieces that make the old new. We also dig aesthetic competence and a knowledge of genre and literary tradition. That said, we admire experimentation and blurred genres as well, so long as the writer brings the heat.

Our only criteria for poetry or micro prose: your writing is alive on the page, has urgency and has something at stake.
