Cobalt is a quarterly literary magazine published online. We also publish an annual print issue, and will be rolling out an all-baseball issue in July 2013. Each issue will feature fiction, non-fiction and poetry of the highest caliber, as well as interviews with some of the most influential writers in the literary community. We seek to publish quality creative work and promote the literary arts, as well as those who celebrate them.

Generally, we love the "wow" factor. If your work leaves a lasting impression with the genre editor, you've got a good shot. We like things that grip the edge of traditional forms. Experimental is fine, but there should be a focus - something that holds it all together. We are very competitive, so you should be sending your best work. Snail mail submissions are not recommended, as our editors only meet a few times between each issue. Online submissions are encouraged.

Without restricting ourselves to a particular genre, media, or theme, we aim to publish interesting, quality works, and every issue has a unique flavour.

Each of our two General Editors takes ownership of at least one issue per year, acting as the chief editor (or Uber-editor) for a particular issue, and leaves one issue per year open for a Guest Editor to act as Uber-editor.  This is just one more way in which Forge celebrates the diversity of contributors while exercising our own unique style, issue by issue.

Send submissions as .doc and .txt submissions via email to forgejournal@gmail.com. We prefer submissions not be pasted into the body of an email, though we recognize that sometimes this cannot be avoided.

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.

We obey no genre and take anything from limericks to fantasy to genres yet invented. Our key desires are originality, accessibility and quality. We like work with a point, something to say or some sort of inner majic that gives greater meaning to the pretty words and thrilling plots. That said, we're not really sure what we’re looking for until we've seen it, so give us a try. Published online monthly, Red Fez Publications features poetry and prose outside of the narrow, academic stream. Red Fez is committed to bringing light to underground and under-recognized writers and writing.

Please do NOT send snail mail submissions. Use the submission form on the website. Read the guidelines and past issues to get a feel for what we like.

Currently we only publish books by a small roster of authors who are interested in releasing multiple books with us, rather than publishing anywhere and everywhere, as quickly as possible. We are only interested in submissions from authors that want to stay with us for multiple books.

Read at least one of our other books before submitting.
