Fat Dog Books is an independent online publisher founded on the premise that if our experience with reading a manuscript is satisfying and engages our intellect and imagination, then it might just do the same for other readers. We grew from a long partnership with another reputable, online publisher, Martin Sisters Publishing, and found the experience of working with authors so enjoyable that we established our own publishing company. Combined, the staff at Fat Dog Books has over 40 years of experience in publishing, editing, writing, and design.

Please visit our website at fatdogbooks.com. Review "Working with Authors" and the submission guidelines. All submissions are through the website forms. All submissions should target an audience 13 or older.

We call ourselves an “alternative” magazine; that is to say: our purpose is to promote work that is thought-provoking and unconventional. We want the controversial and the radical, the unhinged and the bizarre; we want the obsessive, the compulsive, the pervasive, the combative, and the seductive. We believe that every work of quality art has a home where it belongs, and for the “alternative,” the Matador Review is a home.

Eoagh is dedicated to the idea of reading as a process, the productive chaos of investigative poetic work. We seek to foreground the writing of experimental women, trans, feminist, transfeminist, POC, anti-racist, and LGBT/queer authors. We seek work that explores the acts of attention not just in writing but also in being written. Inspired by the assertion that “reading is a gymnast’s act,” we see readings as embodied, interdisciplinary responses that engage with one’s environment.

There will be one submission period for the journal announced each year. There will also be one reading period for book manuscript submissions announced each year.

To submit work to EOAGH, send: essays, articles, or reviews. Any length is acceptable. We do not currently accept unsolicited poetry submissions. To submit articles, criticism, or reviews, send texts of any length.

The Letters Page literary journal is published by the University of Nottingham School of English, and edited by writer in residence, Professor Jon McGregor. We’re interested in exploring what letter writing means to people - and has meant since writing was invented - in their literary cultures and their personal lives. We’ll be publishing essays, memoir, fiction, travelogue, reportage, poetry, criticism, interviews… any creative form of writing, so long as it comes to us framed as a letter.

• The letter should be handwritten on a single side of A4 (or your local equivalent), and sent in the post, with a return address on the back of the envelope. • You may include illustrations. • Enclose contact details on a separate sheet. A transcript may be requested. • The letter should be addressed to a notional ‘reader’ (and should balance the tone of address between the ‘collective’ reader of a journal and the ‘individual’ reader of a forwarded letter); the letter should not address or refer to the editor. • The letter should include some reference to the time/place of its writing and/or sending. • Your submission should be postmarked with a date no later than the stated deadline for submissions.

The Asian American Literary Review is a space for those who consider the designation "Asian American" a fruitful starting point for artistic vision and community. In showcasing the work of established and emerging writers, the journal aims to incubate dialogues and, just as importantly, open those dialogues to regional, national, and international audiences of all constituencies. Published biannually, AALR features fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, translations, comic art, interviews, and book reviews.

Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please indicate if you are submitting the same work elsewhere, and please notify us immediately if you place it elsewhere. Please submit work as a Microsoft Word compatible document attachment. Title the document in the following fashion: last name, first name, genre, title (e.g. Far.SuiSin.Fiction.IntheLandoftheFree). Include a brief biographical note with your query letter. Previously unpublished material only. Standard response time is 4-6 weeks, but please bear with us if we take longer to reply. Please limit submissions to 1 per calendar year.
