Fat Dog Books is an independent online publisher founded on the premise that if our experience with reading a manuscript is satisfying and engages our intellect and imagination, then it might just do the same for other readers. We grew from a long partnership with another reputable, online publisher, Martin Sisters Publishing, and found the experience of working with authors so enjoyable that we established our own publishing company. Combined, the staff at Fat Dog Books has over 40 years of experience in publishing, editing, writing, and design.

Please visit our website at fatdogbooks.com. Review "Working with Authors" and the submission guidelines. All submissions are through the website forms. All submissions should target an audience 13 or older.

All the Sins is a quarterly digital magazine that encourages writers and artists to have courage and to sin against staid storytelling. The magazine was “conceived as a blend of visual, digital and written art that takes storytelling to new limits, asks questions and explores the worlds in which art is made. Responses, challenges and reinventions welcome. We also publish regular features on arts-related topics and encourage submissions for these.”

 

We are particularly interested in work that uses the internet and digital media for the opportunities they present. By 'sinful' we mean art that represents voices and stories that have not traditionally been represented in literary arts magazines—we don't mean erotica, though sex may have a role to play in a given work.

We have no restrictions on the content we publish, except that we’re passionate about publishing new perspectives — new ideas, new voices, new worlds, new challenges, new ways of seeing, etc.— a theme that can take an infinite number of shapes, including speculative fiction, experimental poetry, political essays, narrative reportage, and virtually everything else.

To submit your work, email the editors at arcturusmag@gmail.com. Please address the appropriate editor (see the masthead at the bottom of the About page) and use the subject line: GENRE: Title of Work (ex. FICTION: My Story). Provide a brief introduction and attach your work as either a Word Doc or PDF. We normally respond to submissions within one (1) month.

Foglifter is a biannual compendium of the most dynamic, urgent queer writing today. It’s a space where queer writers celebrate, mourn, rage, and embrace.

Foglifter welcomes daring and thoughtful queer work, in all forms, and we are especially interested in cross-genre, intersectional, marginal, and transgressive work. We want the pieces that challenged you as a writer, what you poured yourself into and risked the most to make. But we also want your tenderest, gentlest work, what you hold closest to your heart. Whatever you’re working on now that’s keeping you alive and writing, Foglifter wants to read it.

AZURE publishes work that is linguistically, intellectually, and emotionally demanding of its reader. It seeks pieces that increase in complexity upon each visitation and exhibit a density worthy of scholarly or artistic study. AZURE's aesthetic tends towards ornate, cerebral, and voluptuous prose/poetry executed with thematic intent. Experimental, craft-driven works and pieces written in distinctly Victorian/Modernist styles can be found within these pages.

We accept literary fiction, novel excerpts, creative non-fiction, screenplays, stageplays, fragments, meanderings, philosophy and poetry.  We are not concerned with genre distinctions; we want only for it to be thoughtful, intelligent, and beautiful. All writers tend to develop a scrap heap of brilliant writing - sharp dialogue that has been cut in service of a plot, a philosophical tirade that can't quite be couched in a narrative, a stunning imagistic landscape of linguistic pyrotechnics that deserves an audience... literary beauty that cannot necessarily be expressed in more than bursts and fragments.

BPP admires authors who challenge our perspectives, or who offer less-common inroads to the most compelling subjects of our time. But we only accept submissions that fit within our company's mission, which is: to engage readers on topics of contemporary culture through quality writing and thoughtful design. Our press strives to deliver socially relevant works that advise, guide, inspire and amuse. We champion authors with new perspectives, strong voices and original ideas that just might change the world.

Please read our mission carefully before you query or submit. For all submissions we require a full propsoal and a minimum of three completed chapters. Your proposal needs to be substantive, well thought-out, and complete. We may be small, but our standards aren't. We are extremely selective and consider numerous factors in taking on a new title. Please do not submit your full manuscript unless we have requested it.

We want your fiction, poetry, art, criticism—you name it—that pushes against complacent taxonomies and finds itself well off the beaten path. We define ourselves as an “isthmus,” a space of crossings and connectivity, between histories, articulations, media—making of these frontiers a site of play and revitalization.

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, and creative nonfiction (memoir/personal essays) and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers.  We are committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and want to hear from underrepresented voices of all types.

We like works that are edgy and affect us intellectually and emotionally.   We want poems , creative nonfiction (memoir/personal essays), and stories that make the reader think and feel, work that humbles us with its joy, humor, embarrassment, anger, hope, grief, or all of the above. We gravitate toward exquisitely crafted writing that has something important to teach us--something that readers really need to know, but might not have understood this was a need until the last word of the work.  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.
