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.

The issues are cohesive; the whole of the magazine is comprehensive.

Submit anything, from new to almost-forgotten, previously published if noted in an email, or rejected for whatever reason from other venues. I do work with talented writers if a theme or plot or character can be drawn out and refined for publication in Wood Coin. The magazine is uncensored as of January 2018, yet extreme literary or artistic stunts need to coincide with US obscenity laws.

Established by combat veterans and maintained by a diverse board of veterans, military spouses, and writers compelled by themes of social justice and human resilience, the Wrath-Bearing Tree publishes essays, reviews, fiction, and poetry on military, economic, and social violence written by those who have experienced military, economic, and social violence or their consequences. 

We seek to expand the conversation around violence, conflict, and war. We especially like work that is thoughtful and balanced when it comes to questions of diversity.
