Pocket Samovar is an international literary magazine dedicated to underrepresented post-Soviet writing, art & diaspora. We originated in 2019 as a group of Jack Kerouac School students influenced—but not determined—by our Soviet cultural memory. As a multilingual print and online publication, we aspire to serve as a virtual tearoom, contributing to the dialogue between North American and Eurasian literary community and expanding the possibilities of writing.

I'm a relatively new writer working toward my first publication. I have been writing poetry for a long time but have limited experience sharing my poems and receiving meaningful feedback. My ideal group would be one that is open to new writers and interested in keeping members accountable. Though I'm unpublished, I have a lot of experience in critiquing creative fiction and poetry, and so I see myself as a valuable asset to a workshopping group.

We look for well-crafted, thoughtful, and thought-provoking writing and visual art that examines, interprets, and redefines the full spectrum of life, past and present, in the Midwest. The Midwest is the region of the north central United States that includes the Great Lakes area and the upper Mississippi River valley (according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Midwest is comprised of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Missouri). Of course, the Midwest is also a state of mind.

Revise your work, proofread, and be professional, patient, and persistent.

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 a 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We seek work that engages or repurposes America's complex cultural history—original & unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, interviews, music, photography, & art.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, and a personal essay on Annie Ross and "Twisted."

Flare is an international literary journal founded by a dedicated group of young writers, photographers, and artists to explore the complexity of the human experience. Our mission is to encourage artists and writers of all backgrounds to express themselves, and we strongly believe that sharing art lifts and connects, regardless of age or location. We hope that our journal is able to empower through that mission.

We applaud work that is loud, expressive, and sincere. We look for honest storytelling that explores the diversity of the human experience. Please keep in mind that our magazine caters to a wide range of ages, and adhere to all submission guidelines.
