Harvard Square Editions is looking for literary fiction of social and environmental value. Its mission is transcend national boundaries, publishing manuscripts that are international, political, literary, spiritual, sci-fi, fantasy, and dystopia. We appreciate aesthetic value and constructive social, spiritual or political content, especially manuscripts dealing with climate change and awareness. We do not appreciate gratuitous levels of profanity and violence.

Cordite Poetry Review is a quarterly Australian journal of poetry and its criticism. International authors are most welcome. Each issue is themed (broadly), so please be sure to look at our submissions page.

Cordite Scholarly is a fully refereed section of the journal, dedicated to research.

We are interested in all formats of poetry. Just because Word can centre a poem in your document, doesn't mean it should. Else, we have no profound DOs and DON'Ts. Each of our issues is guest-edited by a different poet. Submissions are always read blind.

Since 2012, The Wayfarer has been offering literature, interviews, and art with the intention to inspires our readers, enrich their lives, and highlight the power for agency and change-making that each individual holds.

By our definition, a wayfarer is one whose inner compass is ever-oriented to truth, wisdom, healing, and beauty in their own wandering. The Wayfarer’s mission as a publication is to foster a community of contemplative voices and provide readers with resources and perspectives that support them in their own journey.

As we move into our 7th year, in the face of these frightening times we must endure, we renew our commitment to our readers to be a space of solace and our pledge to advocate for marginalized communities, the arts, and environmental conservation.

Published twice a year, Redivider welcomes fiction, nonfiction, graphic art, and poetry submissions from new, emerging, and established artists and writers. We strive to showcase the very best previously unpublished art and literature we can find; to actively engage the broader literary community, and to support and nurture that community in our pages and beyond; to welcome and serve historically underrepresented voices, including those marginalized due to class, gender, race, and sexuality; and, above all, to give good art and literature a good home.

Redivider seeks pieces that captivate readers while complicating their worldviews; that recognize craft and genre conventions while working to disrupt them; that feature compelling characters, stories, and ideas simultaneous to revealing their flaws, fissures and seams. And while we appreciate work that challenges, we also love to be entertained. Humorous, colorful, and satirical pieces appeal to us too. We celebrate all things real and surreal, time-tested and transgressive, swaggerific and self-conscious. In our pages you’ll find the minimalist, the maximalist, and always—always—the in-betweenist. We also host two annual contests: the Beacon Street Prize each spring, and the Blurred Genre Contest in the fall.
