Nōd Magazine is the sole creative writing publication at the University of Calgary. The journal is a creative publication emerging out of an academic environment. The magazine is run by wayward undergraduates who cannot be subdued by essays. We publish innovative work intersecting between the literary and visual arts communities, and seek work that blurs the boundaries of convention.

Push against the borders between genres, mediums, and ideas. Defamiliarize yourself.

Teach. Write.

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN TO ALL, although I prefer writing that is either written by composition teachers and writing students OR about teaching and learning. I believe that writing students (virtually everyone has been a writing student) need to have a voice in Teach. Write. However, I do request that in your required third-person bio you include your composition teacher experience, if you have any, or explain the impact writing instruction has had on you.

Do not feel that the subject of your piece needs to be about teaching, although I am not opposed to teaching as a theme. I am open to any quality, polished writing. No gratuitous sex, violence or profanity, please.

We at Levee aim to physically publish quality fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry from both emerging and established authors. We ask for First North American Serial Rights upon acceptance, but after that the rights revert back to you. Please send prose pieces (fiction and nonfiction) up to 8,000 words, and up to 5 poems at a time. Overall, we won't know what we'll love or hate until we see it, so show us what you got!

WE ENJOY:

  • Poems written in meter
  • Literary Fiction
  • Surrealism
  • Magical Realism
  • Lyric Essays
  • Braided Essays
  • Experimental works
  • Contemporary takes on traditional poetic forms
  • Environmental Writing
  • Prose Poetry
  • Flash Fiction

WE SKIM:

  • Poems that are centered on the page
  • Shape Poetry
  • Genre Fiction
  • YA Fiction
  • Academic Essays
  • Stories that spell out the moral
  • Abundant similes
  • "Ode for ____" when it is not actually in ode form

If your piece is something not listed on either of these lists, it’s fair game.

Poesis is an independent, international, free-access literary journal. We are an online journal, exclusively. It’s like a desert where you can build your literary home. Because the acceptance rate for almost all literary journals is about 5%, we decide to open our house for quality work but without quantitative limitations. We prefer expressive poems that give us a feeling and affect our soul. 

We are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry. We prefer expressive poems that give us a feeling and affect our soul. We are not interested in porn, racial slurs, excessive gore, or obscenity. We publish quarterly, and we accept submissions year-round.

Collective Unrest is an underground resistance magazine. The art, writings, stories, reports, and illustrations contained herein are meant to produce a feeling of humanity, social unity, unrest, and urgency. This space exists as a sounding board, driven to better the existence of all humans.

All work must somehow relate to our message of political resistance, unrest, and unity. Share your human experience. Don’t filter yourself, but we also don’t want vitriolic and hateful submissions. Hate is the reason we are here, the very force we’re fighting against.

We look for well-crafted, thoughtful, and thought-provoking writing and visual art that examines, interprets, and redefines the full spectrum of life, past and present, in the Midwest. The Midwest is the region of the north central United States that includes the Great Lakes area and the upper Mississippi River valley (according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Midwest is comprised of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Missouri). Of course, the Midwest is also a state of mind.

Revise your work, proofread, and be professional, patient, and persistent.
