Bluestem, a nationally recognized literary journal that publishes the brightest new, emerging, and established literary voices, has been published since 1966 and is produced by the English Department at Eastern Illinois University. The journal has largely been run by women of perception and talent for the past several decades, and continues to feature excellent work by women and female-identifying writers. Bluestem finds and publishes impactful work by writers who are quietly creating beauty in their respective corners of the world.
The Museum of Americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.
We seek work that engages or repurposes America's complex cultural history—original & unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, interviews, music, photography, & art. Give us fiction that dramatizes old folk songs or steals their characters. Give us love poetry with language cribbed from The Federalist Papers. Recent features: fiction on the 2008 financial crisis via Bartleby the Scrivener; essay on the family legacy of tomato-growing.
Elsewhere cares only about the line / no line. We want short prose works (flash fiction, prose poetry, nonfiction) that cross, blur, and/or mutilate genre. We publish six writers and one photo quarterly. Give us your homeless, your animals, your lunch money: we're hungry.
Established in 1974, we are the oldest surviving literary publication at New York University. If you are a poet, proser, prose-poet, painter, sculptor, photographer, digital illustrator—otherwise an experimenter of combining word and visual art—Minetta Review staff encourages you to submit your work. Though we are an undergraduate-managed journal, we welcome contributors from all around the world and of all ages.
If you would like to submit poetry, prose, or visual art, please read our submission guidelines thoroughly.
Founded in 2011, Homebound Publications is one of the premier independent publishers in the country. It is our intention to preserve contemplative storytelling. We publish introspective works of creative non–fiction, fiction & poetry.
We are a small press with big ideas set on publishing substance over flash. We routinely work with authors who don’t fit neatly into the corporate publishing model, giving a voice to the countless independent thinkers currently neglected by the mainstream media.
A Letter from the Founder, L.M. Browning
I founded Homebound Publications to bring together a community of like-minded thinkers and see what the dialogue yielded. I didn’t have any sense of how big the press would grow or how widely our titles would be shared, I simply carved out a space in which others could speak and share those deep thoughts they’d pondered. I have always been an ardent believer in creative minds requiring a circle of fellows to push them. The discussion, the inspiration, the contemplation, and the community encourages the kind of boundary-pushing, ego destruction, and refinement of beliefs that bring about movements of change in the larger world.

Akinoga Press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.
We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.

The Nasiona is a volunteer-led nonfiction storytelling organization that amplifies the marginalized, undervalued, overlooked, silenced, and forgotten, as well as stories that glimpse into foreign, at times extraordinary, worlds.
Be familiar with our content and submit pieces that fit what we're about. Though we are a nonficiton magazine, we lean toward creative nonfiction, narrative nonfiction, and nonfiction poetry. We try to steer away from position essays that try to persuade the reader to take a side on an issue. Instead, we look to disclose new worlds through the lens of personal experiences.
