The Flexible Persona is an independent magazine of writing that publishes both online and biannual print issues.

We read for engaging, character-driven fiction in which something happens. Show us the story. We are open to all genres.

We crave creative nonfiction with a clear narration that explores both the large and the small of what it means to be human. 

We also read for sharp-edged poetry.

Our annual flash fiction contest opens for entries from mid-October to mid-December, with winners and finalists announced in mid-January.

Please read your story aloud before submitting. This will help you avoid the syntactical problems that are often revealed through an oral reading. We do not charge a reading fee for mailed submissions. However, if you wish to submit electronically, there is a fee associated to alleviate the costs of our online submission manager.

We’re looking for writing submissions of short stories, poems, personal essays or excerpts (that stand alone) from any genre. We’re willing to consider any form of writing that is well-written and from the heart. We especially love writing that has some connection to writing for wellness – narrative medicine, medical memoir, writing the self, healing writing, etc.

We are a volunteer, quarterly print publication based in Portland, Maine that has been publishing art, poetry and book reviews for over twenty-five years. We forever search for new, strong voices in poetry and art, both in Maine and beyond Maine’s borders. Occasionally we create special tribute issues (such as our Sumac magazine and Auerhahn Press Issue) and do special collaborations with poets from other parts of the world. Our roots are with the great beat poets such as Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Diane Di Prima.

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 Deadly Writers Patrol seeks writing by veterans and others affected by war that addresses the challenges of understanding, witnessing, and homecoming. We believe writing can be a mirror reflecting the deepest corners of our spirits and psyches, express the reality of suffering, explore the possibility of healing, help us resolve problems, and achieve a deeper understanding of our common humanity. It also can bring us face to face with the parts of life that always will remain a mystery.

The Deadly Writers Patrol (DWP) has published fiction, poetry, and memoir by and about veterans for over a decade. We look for writers with all ranges of publication experience, including previously unpublished writers and those who have not been affiliated with an MFA program. DWP is open to writing by veterans on any topic, but we are also open to writing by non-veterans that is directly concerned with issues related to war, survival, and healing.

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.
