The Nasiona’s mission is to cultivate the seeds of nonfiction. We publish and promote narrative-led work that explores the human condition. We focus on creative works based on facts, truth-seeking, human concerns, real events, and real people, with a personal touch.

Be familiar with our content and submit pieces that fit what we're about. Though we are a nonficiton magazine, we lean toward creative nonfiction, narrative nonfiction, and nonfiction poetry. We try to steer away from position essays that try to persuade the reader to take a side on an issue. Instead, we look to disclose new worlds through the lens of personal experiences.

Coal Hill publishes an online, multi-genre literary journal in February, June, and November of each year. Each issue features 8-10 poets, 4-5 prose writers, and 2 in-depth book reviews. At least 30% of the journal is comprised of Pittsburgh writers (Our definition of Pittsburgh writer is simply that you live or have spent a significant time in the city. The pieces submitted do not need to be Pittsburgh themed.) We’re looking for a wide range of voices; we hope you’ll be one of them.

Waxwing is a literary journal promoting the tremendous cultural diversity of contemporary American literature, alongside international voices in translation. We believe that American voices are, at their cores, both multicultural and multinational, and so the editors’ mission is to include American writers from all cultural identities — in terms of race, ethnicity, indigenous tribe, gender, class, sexuality, age, education, ability, language, religion, and region — alongside international voices, published bilingually. 

Waxwing publishes poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, reviews, art, and music, as well as international literature in translation. Waxwing currently accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translations; all other content is solicited.

Due to the high number of submissions and Submittable’s fees for magazines, Waxwing caps submissions at 300/month—submitting at the beginning of the month improves your chances of catching us before we hit the limit. If you are unable to submit due to closure, please come back and submit the next month.

We want to share the stories you’ve been told not to tell.

We publish poetry, non-fiction, and hybrid work by people who identify as or alongside female/trans/non-binary, and who write about existing in a world that tells you your stories are not worthy of art. We believe that your stories are worthy, and we believe in the importance of telling them.

We’re looking for work that is raw and real and good. Tell us the stories you worry aren’t cool enough to be literature. The ones someone in workshop called “too confessional.” The ones that show us what it means to live in your body and in this world. We want to weep with you and cheer for you and rage with you. We know that deeply personal work can be and is art of the highest form, and we’re excited that you want to share yours with us.

We are a non-institutional aggregator of mediocre literature. We aren't as off the wall as we are on the floor. While our editors continue their efforts to undermine each other, we're on a hunt for beavers eager to usurp the traps and give the literary world a bathetic run for its money. 

If you run away, let the salt pour.

Be crass if you think we can't handle your genius.

If you send a fish sandwich with your hard copy submission, you will be moved to the top of the pile. However, doing so does not guarantee publication.
