Red Flag Poetry is a postcard project that aims to deliver poetry to the mailbox of subscribers every month on a postcard. It looks for poetry that is creative, original, and well crafted. It wants to see poems that criticallly reflect life and force readers to feel the weight of the world or your world. 

Please limit each poem to 22 lines maximum with no more than 50 characters per line. These guidelines are somewhat flexible, but keep in mind this has to go on a 4x6 postcard.

Want to send us your poems outside of the open reading period? Well, you can do that, but to keep things moving we have to charge $3 per submission. Please note that our open reading  periods are open in November and April but responses will take 3-4 months.

The Letters Page literary journal is published by the University of Nottingham School of English, and edited by writer in residence, Professor Jon McGregor. We’re interested in exploring what letter writing means to people - and has meant since writing was invented - in their literary cultures and their personal lives. We’ll be publishing essays, memoir, fiction, travelogue, reportage, poetry, criticism, interviews… any creative form of writing, so long as it comes to us framed as a letter.

• The letter should be handwritten on a single side of A4 (or your local equivalent), and sent in the post, with a return address on the back of the envelope. • You may include illustrations. • Enclose contact details on a separate sheet. A transcript may be requested. • The letter should be addressed to a notional ‘reader’ (and should balance the tone of address between the ‘collective’ reader of a journal and the ‘individual’ reader of a forwarded letter); the letter should not address or refer to the editor. • The letter should include some reference to the time/place of its writing and/or sending. • Your submission should be postmarked with a date no later than the stated deadline for submissions.

Moss is a venue for showcasing and supporting writers of the Pacific Northwest, with a special focus on emerging talent and a mission of celebrating and preserving the Northwest’s robust literary culture. Moss is published online three times annually, with each volume collected in an annual print anthology. “...where place-based writing is often a buzzword, the journal provides an in-depth examination into what it means for writing to be 'Northwestern.'” —Bill Carty, City Arts

We accept fiction and non-fiction submissions on a rolling basis; response time may vary based on the issue schedule. Though we will consider pieces of any length, we prefer submissions of at least 1,800 words; shorter pieces may be paid at a reduced rate. We are not accepting poetry at this time. Submissions are limited to current residents of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia and those with a substantial connection to the region. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, with the condition that you notify us immediately if your piece is accepted for publication elsewhere. Please send only one submission, attached as a Word document, to mosslit [at] gmail [dot] com. Moss pays $125 for each accepted piece. We buy First Serial Rights. There is no fee to submit.

A visitant is a visitor from another realm—a specter, a psychopomp, or a transitory creature, like a pilgrim or bird. Visitants pop up throughout literature as ghosts, as fits of madness, and as omens. In nature, a visitant takes on a different meaning: a migratory bird that has come to a place temporarily; a cicada that rises from the soil every seventeen years. Visitant creates a space where you and your temporary visitors—your stories, your words—might rest, grow stronger, and be shared. Send your work! 

We are accepting submissions of poetry (text and / or multimedia recordings or video), flash fiction, serialized fiction, and nonfiction essays. Submissions should be limited to 1,500 words. If you are interested in submitting a longer piece, we may still be able to publish it in serialized format (please see this example: https://visitantlit.com/2016/06/21/a-cov...). Please send all submissions to visitantlit AT gmail DOT com. Please attach your submission as a Word document and include a short biographical statement in the body of your email in third person.
