New authors make up 10% or less of each issue, but don't let that discourage you. We are interested in passionate new voices whose words and ideas hit us in the gut and leave us thinking about their work days after reading.

West Trade Review strives to put forth the best contemporary poetry, fiction, artwork, and photography and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers. Our mission is to perpetuate the work of artists both well known and yet-to-be-known, simultaneously enriching our world through the written word and visual arts. We strive to reflect diversity in style, content and perspective throughout prose, poetry, photography and other artwork. Our goal is to simply present to you the best art possible by both emerging and established creative minds.

 

We embrace diversity and like works that are edgy and affect us intellectually and emotionally. Quality of writing, style, and characterization are important to us. Please don't send us poems that rhyme, slam-style works, or dogmatically religious pieces.

We accept poetry, stories, journalism, photography, and visual art. 

Specific topics we want to include:

  • voices/experiences from countries outside the USA
  • self-care and mental health during crisis & quarantine
  • low-budget DIY guides (think Whole Earth Catalogue)
  • the changing role of the internet in daily life
  • ecology, climate change, the natural world
  • hustles/informal economies post-“gig economy”
  • cyberpunk/tech futures
  • experiences from within hospitals
  • researched, informative articles/tutorials for quarantine success

The Zodiac Review was launched in 2011 to provide a quality venue for readers and new, emerging and established writers of "literary/genre" fiction—the merger of literary fiction and (nearly) any genre that joins it. Here new and emerging writers will find a writing studio of sorts as well as a receptive venue for publication. Editors provide free, personal feedback for all submissions. We also facilitate reader/writer communications, and expect to submit Pushcart nominations.

Please see our website (thezodiacreview.com)for the latest information on our submission periods. When we are open for submissions, please follow our guidelines! (Remarkably few writers do!) And of course read some of our published stories and prose poems.

A Velvet Giant is a collective space for work that exists outside the boundaries of genre. We recognize that it can feel impossible to talk about writing without categorizing it. When we say genreless, we don’t mean apolitical. Writing that resists binary categories such as fiction/nonfiction or poetry/prose is inherently queer and inherently political. We want writing that exists in the world, that resists tradition and expectations to build towards new ways of creating, feeling, and being.

We love ambiguity: flash pieces, found pieces, cross-genre experiments, the "poem" that thinks it might be a story, the "story" that thinks it might be a poem. Retellings and reimaginings. Works that chips away at institutional structures. Work that breaks everything down so that it can build.

Radix Media publishes new ideas and fresh perspectives, prioritizing the voices of typically marginalized communities to get to the root of the human experience. We are looking for work that is experimental, a bit weird perhaps, timely and audacious in its questioning. 

As a print shop, we pride ourselves on the production of superior quality, purposefully designed books. All accepted authors get to work with in-house designers to conceptualise their covers and layout.

Sojourners magazine sits at the intersection of faith, politics, and culture. Our call to prophetic interrogation means we seek the truth as informed by our biblical roots. Sojourners' three key commitments are racial and social justice, life and peace, and environmental stewardship.

No more than three submissions. Poem lengths no more than 30 lines. Must fit on one print magazine page with art. We are looking for skilled poets working at the intersection of Christianity and social justice, faith and politics, spirituality and life to serve a greater common good through art and justice.

C&R Press began in 2006 as a literary press committed to publishing books from new and emerging poets whose work might otherwise be ignored by commercial publishers. We were interested in supporting authors whose thoughtful and imaginative contribution to contemporary literature deserved recognition and support. We've since expanded our catalog to include exciting new fiction and creative nonfiction and reportage/journalism, too.

Do understand that we get more submissions per month than we could ever publish in a lifetime. Please don't take rejections personally. We frequently reject books that are picked up at other presses!

Thurston Howl Publications is a small progressive publishing house in Lansing, Michigan. We have specialized in animal fiction and evocative literature.

The best way to appeal to any of our editors is to move them in a certain way. Your horror should terrify; your fantasy amaze; your erotica arouse; your political lit intrigue.

Representative Authors: 

Some of our namesake authors include Alan Gordon, David Clement-Davies, Catherynne Valente, Kyell Gold, and Fred Patten.
