Yalobusha Review is a journal of new writing, founded in 1995 and operated by the graduate writing program at the University of Mississippi. We seek to showcase work that alters or subverts mainstream forms of expression–work that is, in a broad sense, experimental, though that takes many forms. We believe the reading experience should be a kinetic one, and to that end, we favor art that has its own source of energy, drawn from tonal individuality, linguistic texture, and above all, a sense of exploration.

We accept simultaneous submissions. Please familiarize yourself with our aesthetic before submitting.

Quarterly West looks for writing that is: Exciting. Challenging. Risky. Unpredictable.

And Different.

Different stomps in. Maybe it seeps in. Sometimes, and in our favorite works, different is always already there and it strikes flint and blazes. This is what we look for.

Please submit electronically; we no longer read print submissions.

Rivet publishes writing that breaks from the mainstream to surprise, challenge, and delight. Each issue brings together poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that test the boundaries of form and content--a surrealist sestina followed by a lyric essay on multiracial identity then a flash fiction set in humanity’s far future--the intersections as intriguing as the works themselves. Rivet writers explore their craft fearlessly and thoughtfully, and our editors are dedicated to providing them with a professional venue for publishing experimental work.

We are interested in: surreal, fabulist, and remix aesthetics; political and controversial topics; hybrid and multimedia things that play well online; literary takes on popular genres; reviews of books/media and interviews of people that would be of interest to our audience. We are not interested in: shock value alone; middle class ennui. Most of all, surprise us with something we’ve never seen before, that moves and reveals. We believe in the author-editor relationship, and we work with each writer to fully realize their vision. If that’s something you are as excited about as we are, then we want to read your work.

The whole is a part and the part is a whole. The 100-word format forces the writer to question each word, to reckon with Flaubert’s mot juste in a way that even most flash fiction doesn’t. At the same time the brevity of the form allows the writer “to keep a story free from explanation,” as Walter Benjamin wrote. None of us will ever know the whole story in other words. We can only collect a bag full of shards that each seem perfect.
