We want to bring out the very best stories and poetry that we can get our grubby little mittens on. Writing that crosses borders (metaphorically and literally) effortlessly. That makes us feel things that we didn’t know we could feel, or simply just entertain the pants off of us.

We love stories that are wildly hilarious, off the wall, surreal and surprising, but also stories that are serious, and moving, and have something to say. Our poetry desires are fickle and we’re always willing to have our minds changed at any moment by really good writing. However, in general things that warm our hearts include poems about magic, dirty makeouts, vomit and dinosaurs, whereas we’re a bit meh about poems about breakups, drinking in bars, and the seasons as metaphors for your heart.

Shot Glass Journal is an on-line poetry journal devoted to short poetry. Where other poetry journals publish poems of various lengths and forms, Shot Glass focuses on both free verse and form poetry of 16 lines or less. We believe in fostering emerging talent as well as publishing well established poets. Why only short poetry? It is far more difficult to capture a message in fewer words and still have an effect on a reader. Shot Glass is dedicated to those poets who have much to say in the fewest words possible. As William Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, "...brevity is the soul of wit..."

Free form and form poetry are accepted as long as the poems submitted are 16 lines or under. Shot Glass has a US and International poetry section so please indicate the country from which you are submitting.

Clade Song is a space dedicated to the literary examination of the animal world and all of its behavioral niches from the bacterial mat to the predation of the auk, all of which impact and interrelate with the humanosphere.

At Clade Song we are interested in the evolution of poetry from the phoneme outwards, from raw, exclamatory yelping to the insect hymns sung to enshrine the concrete and the nonce.

We publish work that minimizes, blurs, or exaggerates distinctions between genres and offer a shared space for experimental creative fiction and nonfiction, lyrical fiction, experimental poetry, and multimedia pieces. Small Po[r]tions issues have a print component with a focus on book arts and an online component featuring selections from the print issue along with media work.

Look through what we've published previously (if you can't purchase the print issues, we have representative work from each issue published online) to see the sort of work in which we are interested. We publish experimental poetry, prose, cross/post-genre work, intermedia writing, and multimedia art such as videopoetry and soundwork. If you have any questions about submitting, feel free to contact us at editors@smallportionsjournal.com.
