Send us writing that you’re excited about. Send us work that took courage to begin and tenacity to complete. Send us your proudest personal essay, your classic short story, your reboot of the villanelle, or your weirdest experimental text. Send us your flash fiction or nonfiction. Send your epistle, erasure, hybrid, prose poem, or micro memoir. Send us the story of your life lived in your body.

We read all submissions anonymously. No personal information (such as name, email, social media handles, etc.) should appear on your submission, in the title field, or file name. Submissions with identifying personal information will be returned unread. We understand that nonfiction submissions sometimes contain the writer’s name and ask that you use your best judgment in these circumstances.

Lyric essays. Some hybrid/experimental. Some creative nonfiction.

Prose poetry.

Occasional themed issues, usually in the summer.

Please check our guidelines for specifics. We have rolling submission dates.

 

We especially enjoy lyricism, realism, the light breaking through the darkness. Beautiful prose poetry is sought.

Loud Coffee Press is a quarterly unpretentious and unapologetic literary journal that focuses on three things we love: flash fiction, coffee, and music. We look for writing that hovers in that perfect brew spot of 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit, where the entire piece rocks us to our core. Give us something that keeps us up at night and leaves our ears ringing the next day.

We have unique submission guidelines so we encourage submitters to read them. If you catch us in a good mood, we might be willing to overlook some guideline mistakes for the sake of a fantastic piece. However, our most significant turn-offs come in the form of bland, generic stories, pieces that don’t contain a story arc, or topics that are derivative of current trends. We love music-focused submissions, but we often have to deny a great piece because it could potentially violate copyright law with quoted song lyrics.

The Tiger Moth Review publishes poetry, prose, art and photography that engage with the themes of nature, culture, the environment and ecology. Send us work that is eco-conscious and critical, work that celebrates the beauty/ bounty of nature, work that is cognisant, curious and contemplative of the relationships between humanity, modernity, cultures and the environments in which we live in or imagine ourselves to inhabit.

Club Plum publishes flash fiction, prose poetry and art that often straddles realities without losing clarity or emotion. Powerful, single-reality pieces are loved, too.

The editor treasures the writing process, from inspiration to publication, as writer and as editor; please adhere to the simple submission guidelines to show you care, too. Words that describe accepted pieces: surreal, lyrical, tight, beautiful, melancholy, true. The editor will publish wondrous and/or fierce work, or she will publish nothing.

Chelsea Laine Wells says: "As fiction editor what I'm looking for above all else are affecting moments of beauty and/or discomfort, and if I'm not finding those and being struck by them, then I'm not apt to take the piece. If I do find those affecting moments, I’ll work with an author as much as is needed if there is editing to be done. So those scenes, those characters, those emotional moments that ring with you in both good and bad ways--or both--that's what our authors have in common. They are leaping off the page in undeniable ways."
