Wendy's Subway is a non-profit reading room, writing space, and independent publisher located in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Since 2013, Wendy's Subway has provided an open and versatile platform for expanding modes of reading, writing, and publishing together. We seek innovative, hybrid, and cross-genre work that charts new possibilities and expressions of form, including poetry, artists' writing, and cross-genre works.
The Museum of Americana is an online literary review dedicated to fiction, poetry, nonfiction, photography, music, and artwork that revives or repurposes the old, the dying, the forgotten, or the almost entirely unknown aspects of Americana. It is published purely out of fascination with the big, weird, wildly contradictory collage that is our nation’s cultural history. Issues appear three times a year, in the winter, summer, and fall.
We seek work that engages with or repurposes the complex cultural history of America—original and previously unpublished fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book/chapbook reviews, writer interviews, music, photography, and art. Give us fiction that dramatizes weird old folk songs or steals their characters. Give us love poetry that mixes language cribbed from The Federalist Papers with language cribbed from WWII propaganda posters.
We are open to a wide range of literary work. No genre fiction please.
Read a copy of our magazine before submitting.
This magazine is looking for the in-depth authenticity of what the artist can create by dishing out their ideas and feelings. Our team is looking for a diverse spectrum of essays, prose, short fiction, art, poetry and more! We want pieces that will knock us to our feet — in a good way.
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.

Big Other welcomes submissions in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, lyric essay, art, video, drama, cross-genre, reviews, interviews, book excerpts, and craft essays. We are especially interested in innovative art, literary and otherwise. Big Other seeks to publish diverse voices, including works by women, people of color, and people who are transgender, disabled, indigenous, international, and/or other artists and writers underrepresented in literary magazines.
