Fecund highlights exceptional works of new abundance. The magazine is a medium through which writers and visual artists are exquisitely showcased and paid for their work. Fecund publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, theory, criticism, fashion writing, and visual art via interdisciplinary media (text, audio, video, new media).

Although we don’t conform to one aesthetic, we respond to work that challenges traditional forms or embraces liminality.

Named after the “American haiku” co-invented by Jack Collom and Robert Kelly, and inspired by the sense of “poetry as correspondence”—between persons, planets, symbols, etc.—The Lune's first editions were unbound chapbooks housed in pre-stamped envelopes and sold at bookstores along the Front Range.

With an emphasis on contemplative and collaborative poetics, our catalogue is shaped around the sense of wonder, delight in experiment, and concern for humanity reflected in the work of contemporary poets.

Representative Authors: 

Reed Bye, Jack Collom, Laura Cesarco Eglin, Anne Waldman, Ella Longpre, Maureen Seaton, Joanna Ruocco, David Mutschlecner, Jaime Robles, Jonathan Simkins, &c.

Required Format: Times New Roman 12pt. All prose should be double-spaced. Poetry should be single-spaced. Drama should follow standard play manuscript formatting.

Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 65,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

Send us writing that you’re excited about. Send us work that took courage to begin and tenacity to complete. Send us your proudest personal essay, your classic short story, your reboot of the villanelle, or your weirdest experimental text. Send us your flash fiction or nonfiction. Send your epistle, erasure, hybrid, prose poem, or micro memoir. Send us the story of your life lived in your body.

We read all submissions anonymously. No personal information (such as name, email, social media handles, etc.) should appear on your submission, in the title field, or file name. Submissions with identifying personal information will be returned unread. We understand that nonfiction submissions sometimes contain the writer’s name and ask that you use your best judgment in these circumstances.
