Fiction: We’re looking for compelling characters, plots that surprise us, narratives that move us, stories that have something new to say.

Poetry: We love poems that are lyrical without being overwrought, and are profound without being pretentious. We look for honesty of emotion, and images that arrest us.

Non-Fiction: We are looking for real-life experiences told as riveting narratives with distinct voices. We publish essays that feel artful and true.

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 Previously unpublished material only.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.

The Apple Valley Review is an online literary journal. It is published twice annually, once in spring and once in fall. Each issue features a collection of poetry, short fiction, and essays. Our goal is to support and promote both emerging and established writers.

We prefer work that has both mainstream and literary appeal. Please do not send us strict genre fiction or erotica, work containing explicit language or violence, or work that is scholarly or critical, inspirational, or intended for children. Please note that these are purely editorial preferences. Work that is not a good fit here may be perfect for another market.

The OS is most interested in supporting those who are interested in supporting each other and the community: we care less about your pedigree and more about your energy. We care that your voice is uniquely yours and will never publish derivative, trendy work—we’d rather take a risk on an unknown than publish more of the same from a star. Ideally, you are already engaged in your work in a way that understands this—or you’d like to be.

Please do be familiar with the Operating System's mission and previous works! Check out our online platform, poke around our community, read and explore. Submissions that work best for us are from people who specifically seek the sort of press we are—not those mass submitting to a huge number of presses. That said, if you feel you're a fit, and the OS speaks to you, we'll find a way to make it work—even if it means working together on your manuscript for a year or more. We love big here—we want you to feel supported and empowered. But you've got to really show up. Consider publishing online via our platform / in one of our ongoing series as well!
