Battery Pack only publishes stories up to seventy words in length. We prefer fast-paced, complete stories with a beginning, middle and end. We have a tendency to lean towards horror, but are happy to read in any genre.

Your title isn't part of your wordcount, so make the most of it to add to the story!

Chiron Review presents the widest possible range of contemporary creative writing – fiction and non-fiction, traditional and off-beat, in a perfect-bound, softcover format, including art and photography. We have published many well-known writers, but our focus is on up-and-coming new writers. We look for unpretentious literature that is accessible beyond the ivory towers of academia and outside the bounds of religious or politically correct restrictions. We celebrate ecclectism, diversity, honesty and humor.

Be familiar with the market and follow submission guidelines.

We are a nonprofit literary organization supporting writers at all stages of their careers. Although we welcome experimental or unusual approaches to literature, our goal is to promote finely crafted work with an expressive and meaningful voice. We pay our contributors upon publication because we feel that too much art is taken for granted. We encourage submissions from under-served communities.

Please carefully adhere to our submission guidelines.

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.

Embodying the obsolete word it was named after, Apricity aims to manifest the feeling of the warmth of the sun in the winter in all that it publishes. Established in 2015, Apricity Press was created to fill an immense void in the publishing world. While there are a myriad of presses, literary journals and magazines, many lack the ability to publish multi-genre works, especially dance works. Because of this, Apricity constructed a space where incredible literary, art and dance works could be published side by side, showcasing the tremendous connections between the forms. 

When submitting to Apricity, please follow our submission guidelines carefully!

There are no lofty goals to meet, only the expectation that all submissions of poetry, prose, and photography/visual arts are carefully thought-out, thoroughly edited, and sent in by the appropriate deadline. The Blue is a Southern publication, but we do not define the boundaries of that interpretation. That is up to you, the artist, to consider and reflect upon when you give your material that final once-over before you do us the honor of reviewing the phrases and imagery.

Submissions for poetry: Any style is accepted. Any length is accepted. Please limit your submissions of poetry to 3 per issue.

Book reviews: Please submit a request, background information, and publisher of the work in question.

Submissions for prose: Please submit prose (non-fiction, fiction, or essay) to the same email provided on our website. Limit your prose to no more than 2,500 words. Send only one prose piece per issue.

Flash fiction: We honor this flavor of prose as well. With flash fiction, as is indicated by the title, make it short. The shorter, the sweeter. You are free to submit up to 3 pieces of flash fiction at a time.
