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.

Our goal is to promote creative artists and give them the recognition they deserve. We also seek to provide opportunities for growth and learning for artists. We host events throughout the school year, feature artists’ work online, and release a literary magazine each fall and spring semester.

We accept entries of the following types: art, essay, music lyrics, photography, plays, poetry, and short story (fiction and non-fiction).

Now that you know about us, #ShareYourAura.

With Aura the potential is limitless. This literary arts magazine is about celebrating human experiences and cultivating passionate artists from across the world. We connect poets and artists, writers and digital illustrators, to create a cohesive narrative. The power of art is something that inspires all of us, when we share our aura through writing we are are affecting others without even realizing it. We accept submissions throughout the year, you can learn more by following us on social media (Insta: aura_uab) (twitter: AuraUAB) and (Aura Literary Arts Review on Facebook).

COG has multiple print issue subscription options, in addition to the free online issues.

Each issue of COG is a curiously constructed curation offered up by the students of Cogswell College. COG's writers thrill with skillfully wrought and cohesive narratives; insight and intensity; imagery and attitude - alternating nimbly between closely examined moments, characters or nuances and larger human themes. COG is not a venue for student work; rather, as of March 2018, COG had received submissions from writers working in 24 countries beyond the U.S.

In addition to publishing traditional text-based work, check out Cogitate - our audio broadcast - and the video series. We consider submissions in both categories, as well as cover art submissions.

Battery Pack only publishes stories up to seventy words in length. We prefer fast-paced, complete stories with a beginning, middle and end. We have a tendency to lean towards horror, but are happy to read in any genre.

Your title isn't part of your wordcount, so make the most of it to add to the story!

The Offbeat, a literary journal specializing in undisputedly unique works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and sequential art, is accepting submissions. Submit writing that is intriguing, eccentric, and, most importantly, “off the beaten path.”

We ask for different. We DO NOT mean unnecessarily explicit content produced purely for the purpose of being shocking. We are interested in quality.

NILVX (nil-lux) is a quarterly anthology of magic(k), mysticism, and the occult.  We bring together the work of writers and artists from around the world to amplify magical themes and symbols through ritual, poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, and art.   The survived history of magic and the occult is built upon a legacy of artists and visionaries, and whether you are drawn to the Mysteries or actively involved with the magical community, NILVX offers a platform to build upon that legacy in word, image, and idea.
