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 17 years. Here at Visitant, we have created a space where you and your temporary visitors—your stories, your art—might rest, grow stronger, and be shared. Send us your work! https://visitantlit.com/contact

We are accepting submissions of flash fiction, serialized fiction, non-fiction essays, multimedia essays, poetry, art, and interviews. 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-coven-in-essex-county-part-1). 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.

We obey no genre and take anything from limericks to fantasy to genres yet invented. Our key desires are originality, accessibility and quality. We like work with a point, something to say or some sort of inner majic that gives greater meaning to the pretty words and thrilling plots. That said, we're not really sure what we’re looking for until we've seen it, so give us a try. Published online monthly, Red Fez Publications features poetry and prose outside of the narrow, academic stream. Red Fez is committed to bringing light to underground and under-recognized writers and writing.

Please do NOT send snail mail submissions. Use the submission form on the website. Read the guidelines and past issues to get a feel for what we like.

We are actively looking for unique modes of storytelling that fall outside conventional boundaries while still maintaining the core essence of "story." We accept stories in all forms and formats, especially those we haven't thought of yet.

We look for a story to tell us something universal about the human condition. Just because our theme is "recovery" doesn't mean that all of what we publish is about successful recovery. Often it's not the recovery story that says the most about the process of recovering. We like work that shows heart and depth of character.

I look for interesting language. Word plays, lyricism, music, these are all very important to me. And bear in mind that when I say "music," that doesn't mean only classical. Rock and roll, punk, hip-hop--these are music, too. A story can be hard-hitting and gritty and still have music to the words.

Cobalt is a quarterly literary magazine published online. We also publish an annual print issue, and will be rolling out an all-baseball issue in July 2013. Each issue will feature fiction, non-fiction and poetry of the highest caliber, as well as interviews with some of the most influential writers in the literary community. We seek to publish quality creative work and promote the literary arts, as well as those who celebrate them.

Generally, we love the "wow" factor. If your work leaves a lasting impression with the genre editor, you've got a good shot. We like things that grip the edge of traditional forms. Experimental is fine, but there should be a focus - something that holds it all together. We are very competitive, so you should be sending your best work. Snail mail submissions are not recommended, as our editors only meet a few times between each issue. Online submissions are encouraged.

Cordite Poetry Review is a quarterly Australian journal of poetry and its criticism. International authors are most welcome. Each issue is themed (broadly), so please be sure to look at our submissions page.

Cordite Scholarly is a fully refereed section of the journal, dedicated to research.

We are interested in all formats of poetry. Just because Word can centre a poem in your document, doesn't mean it should. Else, we have no profound DOs and DON'Ts. Each of our issues is guest-edited by a different poet. Submissions are always read blind.
