We seek to publish - in paper and ink - the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved." 

We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”

Foundlings Press is a highly selective publisher of full-length works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and certain other uncategorizable material. Under our imprint The Public Books we publish full-length nonfiction works of historical, political, cultural, economic, and often local interest. The Press also produces a biannual print poetry magazine. We will accept unsolicited submissions during two four-week periods each year.  Foundlings hosts an annual artist residency and poetry chapbook publication contest, which pairs a winning poet with a pre-selected guest book artist. We accept submissions year-round at foundlingszine@gmail.com. Much of our list is solicited, and it can take us quite a long time to respond to full-length submissions.

akinoga press is a Baltimore-base 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.

akinoga press generally does not accept unsolicited manuscripts; all manuscript acquisitions are done under the direction/discretion of mychael zulauf (if akinoga wants to publish you, you'll hear from him).

However, if you are familiar with the press and catalogue, and you feel like you have a manuscript/project that meshes with akinoga's aesthetics and mission, please send an email (not the manuscript or project) to akinogapress@gmail.com to begin that discussion.

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.

We adore the strange, new, and off-kilter, but above all we want work that speaks to something real. This doesn't mean we only like realistic prose and narrative poetry-far from it. We want you to look beyond the real to the truth buried beneath, then smuggle that truth back to us in your words.

We are, in some ways, a craft-oriented magazine. When we accept work, we also love to publish earlier drafts and notes that went into making it. To us, the process is just as important as the result.

Take risks. We believe it is the goal of small magazines to not only publish great work, but to work with writers and give them the necessary criticism to grow and shape their voices. A brilliant failure is always more exciting than a poor imitation of good art.

MORIA is a national online literary magazine with an all-student editorial board, based at Woodbury University in greater Los Angeles. We accept poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from emerging and established writers in the United States and across the world. We publish once-a-year, in the late fall.

While we accept all styles — including experimental, hybrid, and conventional forms — we aren’t interested in submissions of light verse, genre fiction, and any piece that references gratuitous violence or exploitative sexual imagery. We’re committed to publishing a diverse range of poets and writers. In our debut issue (2017), 73% of our authors were women and 24% were writers of color. We also published pieces from writers in their 20s to writers in their 70s — and every decade in between. We welcome work from traditionally under-represented groups, including women writers, indigenous writers, writers of color, writers who identify as LGBTQ, and writers with disabilities.

We publish many first time or emerging poets.

Ekphrastic writing. All of the poetry and prose we publish in inspired by visual art. 

Read the journal! We love diverse styles of quality writing from all over the world, but if your work doesn't respond to works of visual art, we can't use it. 

If you are someone who loves visual art and loves writing about visual art, we'd love to hear from you.

Surprise us. We want nothing less than to expand and redefine exkphrasis by stretching the concept to its limits. Show us artworks we've never seen, or show us our familiar favourites from a whole new perspective.
