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.

all the sins is a quarterly digital magazine that encourages writers and artists to have courage and to sin against staid storytelling. Break rules, push boundaries and tell new stories in new ways. Just tell a good story. It was conceived as a blend of visual, digital and written art that takes storytelling to new limits, asks questions and explores the worlds in which art is made. Responses, challenges and reinventions welcome. We also publish regular features on arts-related topics and encourage submissions for these.

We are particularly interested in work that uses the internet and digital media for the opportunities they present. By 'sinful' we mean art that represents voices and stories that have not traditionally been represented in literary arts magazines - we don't mean erotica, though sex may have a role to play in a given work.

The Phantom Billstickers Cafe Reader is a quarterly literary zine featuring short stories, poems, art and editorial by both New Zealanders and international authors. The stories we publish are heartfelt glimpses into family, community, and the more colourful aspects of the creative life. Our contributors are a collection of globally recognized authors and emerging artists who deserve to be heard. 2017 will be our 5th year publishing the Café Reader. 2,000 copies are distributed in the USA through 50 independent bookstores. 10,000 free copies are distributed in New Zealand.

Although we do publish some poetry in each issue, the Café Reader is not a ‘poetry’ publication. Short fiction is more likely to be accepted. Emerging voices are as likely to be published as established authors. We value diversity. We admire content that is thought provoking, heartfelt, humorous and that challenges the norm.

We want authors compelled to write by the significance of their own experience and questions. We want authors who are interested in the sentence, how it's made, where it goes, and what it builds.

We are eclectic and personal in approach. We do not automatically exclude topics and voices that we haven't encountered before.

Individuals may query before submitting. We do not invite agented submissions.

We hope that the nominal $10 fee and exclusive submission policy will encourage writers to choose us as carefully. Our small size makes us particularly appreciative of well-focused submissions.

We are not in general interested in illustrated books. Please query before sending one.

Submit with focused ideas about the readership for your book.

Sun Star Review is a literary journal publishing prose (fiction, nonfiction, flash, long, or simply unclassifiable), poetry, visual art, and mixed media work. We prefer nuance to flash. We love depth and emotional resonance. We love to read experimental work, and we appreciate risk taking and ambitiousness⎯so long as the ambition is earnest. We love work that blends the real and fantastical. We are also committed to promoting diverse voices and points of view that aren’t well represented in the general literary scene.

Please do submit your best work through our submittable portal. Please do read our mission statement. Please do format submissions to industry standard, and please do follow our submission instructions.
