We especially like stories, poems, and non-fiction pieces that deal with the spiritual, progressive, regenerative, and transformative elements of life. We’re also highly drawn to works about religion, Israel/Palestine, the Mideast conflicts, and social justice. Please keep in mind that ours is a global, multi-faith readership, and while we appreciate non-English expressions, the language needs to be broadly accessible.

Works must be under 3,000 words to be published in the print magazine. While we have no set lengths for web pieces, works over 5000 words will have to be especially impressive to warrant publication. Novel excerpts are fine provided that they can stand alone. All works will be considered for both the print edition and online. We also welcome simultaneous submissions provided we’re notified in the cover letter and informed immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work, and we require that all submissions be made through our online system. Please submit only one story at a time and no more than three per year.

The editors of Rock & Sling want to be surprised, more than anything. Surprised at the solidity of your work, the beauty of it, the tension in it, the argument of it, the freshness of it, the experiment of it. We live in a mysterious, challenging, fraught world, and we look for work that engages, challenges, or extends those realities. Work that puts us in peril.

Engage difficulty.
Avoid adverbs.
Surprise us.
Risk failure.
Do not dwell in abstraction; engage the senses.

Whale Road Review will publish poetry, flash fiction, and micro essays that don’t demand too much time up front, but somehow leave readers changed. We hope readers of all sorts will enjoy these short pieces in stolen moments—waiting in line, using the restroom, riding a train, steeping tea. Whale Road Review will also be a resource for writing teachers and a venue for reviews. We will publish quarterly.

PILGRIM is committed to helping Catholics grapple intelligently and humanely with challenges posed to them both by the Church and by contemporary society. We explore what it means to sustain a Catholic identity and live Christianity holistically in today's world. We also provide a forum for Catholics, and those sympathetic to Catholic ideas and approaches to life, to develop their capacities for criticial thought, creativity, and concern for one another and for all God's creation.

Humanistic in our approach, we are interested in all subjects that concern the life and destiny of real men and women. We seek work of intellectual, literary, and artistic quality which is also accessible to a general audience. Because our publisher, Pilgrim Publishers, Inc., is a recognized non-profit in the United States, we do not publish content that advances political parties, candidates, or ideologies per se. Contributors are nevertheless welcome to discuss social and economic issues and a wide range of topics relevant to politics, so long as they keep in mind that our mission at Pilgrim is educational, literary, and religious, and not political advocacy.
