Send me your best poetry. I don’t particularly care whether it’s formal or informal, metrical or free verse, rhyming or not. I’ve written all those possibilities myself. A good poem isn’t one that gets the grades for following particular rules. And I’m sure I’ll reject plenty of good poems anyway.

We aim for content that reminds us that our lenses matter—they focus, distort, clarify, conceal. We are committed to publishing work from under-represented voices, including people of color, women, people from LGBTQIA+ communities, and people who have disabilities. We value and emphasize relationships between the literary and visual arts, pairing the majority of the pieces we publish with original work from a variety of contributing visual artists.

SORTES publishes whatever makes us shiver, plotz, turn on, and/or freak out. We've published what might be called magical realism, dirty surrealism, fantastical biography, experimental poetry, tender balladeering, elusive allusive elliptical poetry, and sweet old grainy photography.

SORTES considers unsolicited submissions of poetry, prose, illustration, music, videos, and anything else you think may fit our format and feel—and very often material that doesn't. Feel free to poke at us: we’d love to find a way to publish dance, sculpture, puzzles, and other unliterary modalities.

We strive to assemble a collection of literature and art designed and written with purpose and demonstrating passion for the work. We are open to unconventional work, while still appreciating the traditional. We are committed to publishing literature and art that is inclusive of diverse identities, perspectives, and crafts. We encourage new voices, but accept work from established artists and writers as well.

Read the guidelines carefully, and follow them. For issue #5, we are capping submissions so get your work in early! Also, we will include a themed dossier, Alone and Together. Beginning last March, we have learned to live as never before in our lives. We feel isolated emotionally and socially; maybe we already felt that way before the pandemic. At the same time, we are waking up to so many things, though our awakening is long overdue: the corrupt justice system, the need for police reform, and for reform across our government. Respond to the theme in any way that makes sense to you, but identify the genre of your submission and follow the guidelines for that genre though you submit your work in this category.

Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 75,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.
