We love literature. We love reading it, we love writing it, and we love talking about it. We also love delving into the "deep shelf" material of favorite authors and discovering exciting new voices. At the Midnight Oil, we seek to provide a venue where new and emerging writers can be published alongside established masters of their craft, where old favorites and new favorites collide, and you’ll find writing that will keep you reading into the wee hours of the morning, even when you know that you really should be getting to bed.

We do not provide book reviews, pull quotes, or endorsements of any kind. We do not subscribe to any mailing lists. We do not accept submissions via e-mail. Any e-mails that fall into these categories will be deleted unread, if you would like to submit, please follow the procedures outlined on our Submit page.

What Are Birds? is a literary journal looking for work that enthralls us. We are especially excited about hybrid work that crosses genre boundaries or exists outside of genre altogether. We understand the dire need for representation and diversity and strive to be changing the trends in publishing. We strongly encourage queer, trans, nonbinary, POC, femme, neurodivergent, disabled, (and any other writers who lack representation) to submit to our journal.

The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery and collected conversation. The first priority of the Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel.
