Diode Poetry Journal is looking for poetry that excites and energizes, that uses language that crackles and sparks. We’re looking for poetry from all points on the arc, from formal to experimental (no light verse or erotic poetry, please). Simultaneous submissions are welcomed, but please notify us if they're accepted elsewhere. Diode does not accept previously published work.

Hunger Mountain is both a print and online journal of the arts. We publish fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, visual art, young adult and children’s writing, and literary odds and ends. Our print issue comes out annually in the early spring, and our online content changes on a regular basis. Our mission is to cultivate engagement with and conversation about the arts by publishing high-quality, innovative literary and visual art by both established and emerging artists, and by offering opportunities for interactivity and discourse.

Please do send us your best work. Please don't send us detective stories. We’re currently accepting submissions in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and children’s literature. The theme for our 2017 print issue is "masked/unmasked" and we hope to receive submissions that interpret that theme in broad and unusual ways.

Since the magazine’s inception in 1980, editors and readers have worked to keep alive the journal’s tradition of publishing both established and emerging writers who uphold the highest standards of innovative prose and poetry.

We have eyes for work that is both innovative in form/content and heart-wrenching in theme. Send good lit!

We are looking for writing that explores the boundaries of text and form, writing that is both progressive and unbound. We would like to see hybrid and transgenre pieces that remain critically engaging. We are interested in poetry, fiction, drama, nonfiction, sound, and critical work. We seek experimental writing that is fresh, intelligent, and playfully transgressive.

See our submission guidelines. Please only submit once per issue unless we specifically request additional work.

Territory is a literary project about territories and the maps that will always fail to capture them. We want to understand the paradoxes created by these maps by understanding what inspires them. We invite writers, musicians, and other artists to respond to maps and the fallacies they engender, in turn creating secondary maps. We then present these two maps side-by-side as a means of getting at, but still failing to capture, the underlying territory.

Please pair your submission with a map, either one we provide on our website or one you would like to use. If you provide the map, make sure it's a high-res image and available for fair use. In the case that your submission is not paired with a map but is sufficiently "map-like" in some way, we look for your suggestions of what maps to use and why to use them.

Phoebe prides itself on supporting up-and-coming writers, whose style, form, voice, and subject matter demonstrate a vigorous appeal to the senses, intellect, and emotions of our readers. We choose our writers because we believe their work succeeds at its goals, whether its goals are to uphold or challenge literary tradition.

Phoebe seeks to publish quality writing. Please do not send formulaic writing, romance fiction, or greeting-card poetry. We do not consider previously published work. We insist on openness, which means we welcome both experimental and conventional prose and poetry, and we insist on being entertained, which means the work must capture and hold our attention, whether it be the potent language of a poem or the narrative mechanics of a short story.
