The Gravity of the Thing is an independent literary magazine dedicated to the publication of innovative and defamiliarized writing. We publish work that is aware of its literary form, writing that defamiliarizes in craft or content for an enhanced rendering of reality.

SORTES publishes whatever makes us shiver, plotz, turn on, and/or freak out. We've published what might be called magical realism, dirty surrealism, fantastical biography, experimental poetry, tender balladeering, elusive allusive elliptical poetry, and sweet old grainy photography.

SORTES considers unsolicited submissions of poetry, prose, illustration, music, videos, and anything else you think may fit our format and feel—and very often material that doesn't. Feel free to poke at us: we’d love to find a way to publish dance, sculpture, puzzles, and other unliterary modalities.

Tight work which will leave a scar on a reader.

Your work does not need to be desert-themed; but the general open feeling of a desert should be present in the work. We also publish books by authors whose work appears in the magazine, and do not yet have a publisher.

Inkwell Journal, a literary journal published through the MFA program at Manhattanville College, seeks submissions in English of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction/memoir, graphic narrative, visual art, and cross-form work. We are interested in both established and new voices, including voices that have been historically underrepresented. Thank you so much for considering us for the publication of your work. 

Send us your best work! We emerged from a creative writing program that found its community in artists from all disciplines, from literary fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction to dramatic arts to graphic storytelling. If it works on the page, we may just publish it. 

The theme for Issue 36 is "Resilience." We are also considering general submissions, except in Visual Art, which should be a portfolio of 3-5 pieces to the theme only. Please send only one submission. 

We also yearn for more boundary-busting Creative Nonfiction, especially if you cross forms or employ graphic narrative.

After more than 60 years, we remain committed to publishing the best in contemporary poetry, especially work willing to take risks and push readers to the emotional and intellectual edge of what poetry makes possible. Edited and published on the lip of the Pacific Rim, adjacent to the border with Canada, and smack in the middle of a 10,000 year old site of intense human migration, our magazine is a place where poems, visual arts, and cultural commentary are orchestrated to bring to the printed page a robust awareness and investigation of this complex and interwoven life.

Current editor Keetje Kuipers has said, "I'm interested in accepting poems that I struggle with, that I don't understand, that I might even fundamentally disagree with in terms of either their craft or simply the argument they're making about the state of the world." Founding editor Carolyn Kizer placed a special emphasis on encouraging the "raw, emerging talents, the neglected and overlooked." Our dedication to employing equitable editorial practices that emphasize the rich diversity of today's poets enhances our mission of publishing the most exciting work we can find.

Please See Me is an online literary journal that features health-related stories. The mission of the publication is to elevate voices and stories of vulnerable and underserved populations and those who care for them. At the heart of this publication is the cultivation of meaningful patient–provider partnerships in the spirit of wellness. To that end, we will publish work written by patients, family members, creatives, caregivers, and providers; anyone with a health-related tale to tell is invited to submit.

Each issue of Please See Me has a theme, though we consider any health-related story during this inflection point in time, and we encourage diverse voices to submit. Our Winter 2020 Issue #6 theme is "Bias" reflecting the need to curate narratives engendering empathy and understanding of those marginalized. Bias is widespread, touches all of us, and includes race, religion, physical appearance, age, mental/physical illness, social status and more.
