We seek to publish - in paper and ink - the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved."
We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”
Foundlings Press is a highly selective publisher of full-length works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and certain other uncategorizable material. Under our imprint The Public Books we publish full-length nonfiction works of historical, political, cultural, economic, and often local interest. The Press also produces a biannual print poetry magazine. We will accept unsolicited submissions during two four-week periods each year. Foundlings hosts an annual artist residency and poetry chapbook publication contest, which pairs a winning poet with a pre-selected guest book artist. We accept submissions year-round at email@example.com. Much of our list is solicited, and it can take us quite a long time to respond to full-length submissions.
akinoga press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.
We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.
akinoga press generally does not accept unsolicited manuscripts; all manuscript acquisitions are done under the direction/discretion of mychael zulauf (if akinoga wants to publish you, you'll hear from him).
However, if you are familiar with the press and catalogue, and you feel like you have a manuscript/project that meshes with akinoga's aesthetics and mission, please send an email (not the manuscript or project) to firstname.lastname@example.org to begin that discussion.

Please see our submission guidelines for more information.
Stories that don't fit neatly in a box ... no matter the genre or form.
Pattern Recognition publishes well-written short fiction, non-fiction, poetry and comics. Experimentation is always welcome.
We are particularly interested in compositions conceived from an ‘alternative’ Gen-X perspective. Just imagine that the North America of 1989 through 1995 never ended, the Spice Girls and the Internet never happened, and Justine Bieber was never even born. Copies of Pattern Recognition Nos 1 and 2 are available from Amazon.com.
We’re particularly interested in themes of healing and reclaiming, family and found family, communities and support systems, and quite plainly, love. We invite you to invent, reinvent, experiment, and bend or break the rules. Give us your big and your small, your subtle poetry and your speculative fiction, your political and your personal, your faith, identity, love, loss, and humanity.
Our previous issues have featured works of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that grapple with harsh realities of everything from social media to systemic oppression and inspire us to fight against these barriers.
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.
