FishFood Magazine is dedicated to all forms of creative expression and talent.

FishFood Magazine encourages self-expression from daily life through art. Art tends to serve as a coping mechanism from regular shenanigans and obstacles, and FishFood's main goal is to create a community where artists can share their personal meditation through creativity.

FishFood is an irregularly published magazine that features various literary and art pieces. The online platform also serves as a gateway for multimedia artists to become recognized for their music, films, etc.

Please submit poetry that speak to the readers visually more so than lyrically. We also love micro-fiction! Boy do we love micro-fiction.

Pouch is an online poetry journal named after the distinguishing feature of the Virginia opossum- an animal we are strongly in favor of. Pouch is a nice place to put things. Nice things.

Pouch maintains a simple & reserved format for those who become grumpy when bombarded. Less is. We do not have delicate sensibilities; we value honesty, with all its fleas.

We are interested in authenticity. Understated narratives are a plus. Puns are a plus. Note that happy laughs & melancholy shrugs interest us equally. Persona poems will be a tough sell, though we are not entirely averse to them.

Despite being based in the States, Pouch is all places- happily considering work from anywhere in the world, from writers at any stage in their careers. We regret that we do not accept translations. Passable English is our only international requirement.

Does not consider previously published work.

We aim to be pluralists in our exploration of things neo-modern. This is not a movement nor is it a pretense to a clear aesthetic criteria as much as a zeitgeist and a de-personalization of the arts. We are like the orphaned children of deposed nobility, walking in the aftermath of their advances and retreats; their hundred visions and revisions.

Read a review issues and look at the themes. We accept from the general slush pile all year long, but we do have particular issues. We do not publish short stories except for flash fiction and micro-fiction or cross-genre narratives

Wordgathering provides a venue for those whose talent in writing poetry converges with an interest in the growing field of disabilities literature. We seek writing that counters stereotypes of disabilities. In addition to poetry, we publish books reviews, literary essays, fiction, drama and art related to disability.

We do not use "inspirational" work or stories of overcoming. We seek poetry, fiction and literary essays that make a genuine contribution to the field of disability literature. We appreciate poetry that provides fresh insights about what a disabilities perspective can provide and avoids clichés. Please read sample poetry before submitting. We discourage submissions by pdf file or other formats that can not be interpreted by a screen reader. Audio files will be requested or created for poems accepted. We do review books.
