We've published poems by Christian Wiman, Bruce Smith, and C. K. Williams, among others, and we've run stories by Joyce Carol Oates, Grace Paley, Francine Prose, and Leslie Epstein, among others.
Circulation: 
Greater than 10,000

We especially like stories, poems, and non-fiction pieces that deal with the spiritual, progressive, regenerative, and transformative elements of life. We’re also highly drawn to works about religion, Israel/Palestine, the Mideast conflicts, and social justice. Please keep in mind that ours is a global, multi-faith readership, and while we appreciate non-English expressions, the language needs to be broadly accessible.

Works must be under 3,000 words to be published in the print magazine. While we have no set lengths for web pieces, works over 5000 words will have to be especially impressive to warrant publication. Novel excerpts are fine provided that they can stand alone. All works will be considered for both the print edition and online. We also welcome simultaneous submissions provided we’re notified in the cover letter and informed immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work, and we require that all submissions be made through our online system. Please submit only one story at a time and no more than three per year.

Furniture Press is a publisher of strangely poetical texts and ephemera, all which play at (but are not limited to) intertextuality and appropriation. Some want to call it poetry, but poetry can express many differing, sometimes conflicting and contradictory concepts. This is what we thrive on: the ambiguation of art and its likenesses. Our poetics follows this process closely, and we look for similar aesthetics in the writers we choose to publish and promote.

Please query with 3–5 poems and cover letter before sending longer series/collections.

Representative Authors: 

Emily Carr, Chris McCreary, Magus Magnus, Joshua Ware, Ryan Eckes, Elizabeth Savage, j/j hastain, Deborah Poe, Martine Bellen, Alyse Knorr, Jared Schickling, Chris Mason, Toby Altman, Daniel Carter, Tyler Carter, Elizabeth Robinson, Anne Ashbaugh, Dan Waber, Jennifer Hill, William Allegrezza, Catherine Daly

The Saranac Review is committed to dissolving boundaries of all kinds, seeking to publish a diverse array of emerging and established writers from the United States, Canada and the rest of the world. The journal strives to be a textual clearing in which a space is opened for literary cross-pollination. We aim to publish diverse voices, a literal "cluster of stars," an illumination of the Iroquois roots of our namesake, the word, Saranac.

Our editorial scope is eclectic, and open to all styles, but we are looking for work that is literary, engaging, well crafted and has resonance. We are not interested in genre fiction (e.g. Sci fiction; horror, etc.) or light verse. We suggest that any writer interested in submitting work read a copy of the journal. Buy a digital copy for $4.95 from our website or obtain a sample issue for $5.95. The Saranac Review is an annual so there is a relatively long time between acceptance and publication.
