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 once-a-year, in the late fall.

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.

In Layman's Terms publishes poetry, creative nonfiction, and interviews from around the world with the intention of bridging the gap between academia and the average person, or even the gap between different branches of academia itself. It is meant to inspire a curiosity for learning about science, the natural world, and technology.

Please pay attention to the submission guidelines and the current theme. We suggest reading past issues to get a feel for what we're going for, but also because we think there are some pretty neat pieces of writing and art, and our contributors deserve some attention.

Founded by Catherine Esposito Prescott and Jen Karetnick, SWWIM Every Day publishes one poem every weekday from women and women-identifying/femme-presenting writers of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, orientations, expressions and experience (emerging to internationally acclaimed). Poems are also delivered to in-boxes via subscription. The editors enjoy everything from prose poems to free verse to prosody; however, the digital platform excludes formatting some highly visual or extremely experimental pieces.

We welcome poems on a variety of themes or subjects. We especially like to see work that, despite its excellence, has been overlooked or excluded by the patriarchy. SWWIM stands for Supporting Women Writers in Miami, where we run a reading series, but we publish writers from all over the world. We nominate for all award anthologies and prizes. Subscribe for a poem delivered to your in-box every weekday to get a sense of our aesthetic and follow/like us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @swwimmiami where we re-post all the work and announce fee-free submission periods.

We want work that is urgent and beautiful, that was written with lightning and a sense that tomorrow may never come. We want work that pushes edges and tells us something new. We love work that is personal and political—political in the largest sense, as in awareness of who has the power and how it is they came to have it. We publish interviews and book reviews and review-essays.

In these times when the Earth and humanity seem so breakable, as if they might break each other, we search for answers in the air. What’s our next move? What did I just see on the news? What does this moment demand of me? Poets interpret their screens, sing to nature, and admonish us our selfishness. Califragile is a portrait of turning, questioning, stretching, stepping up.

We consider most topics, not violent, pornographic, or oppressive. We seek writing that's spare and economic while showing what’s possible with imagery. We prefer modern free verse over rhyming, metered work. But quality walks in on its own. Offer us something thrilling and unexpected. Have something to say, whether on the micro or macro level. Send us your poems that deepen the dialog.
