Query first. Please don't submit material that does not have a connection to the Delmarva area. No poetry or memoir.

Visitants pop up throughout literature as ghosts, as fits of madness, and as omens. In nature, a visitant takes on a different meaning: a migratory bird that has come to a place temporarily; a cicada that rises from the soil every 17 years. Here at Visitant, we have created a space where you and your temporary visitors—your stories, your art—might rest, grow stronger, and be shared. Send us your work! https://visitantlit.com/contact

We are accepting submissions of flash fiction, serialized fiction, non-fiction essays, multimedia essays, poetry, art, and interviews. Submissions should be limited to 1,500 words. If you are interested in submitting a longer piece, we may still be able to publish it in serialized format (please see this example: https://visitantlit.com/2016/06/21/a-coven-in-essex-county-part-1). Please send all submissions to visitantlit AT gmail DOT com. Please attach your submission as a Word document and include a short biographical statement in the body of your email.

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.

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.

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.
