We are looking for voices which carry a message of change, of love and liberation from marginalized places, unexplored spaces. We love art, photography included with narratives and are inclined to publish writing which pushes the borderlands between one genre and another, disappearing divisions between us. All together. We offer a nEw collection of author services to bridge the digital divides!

Please send your BEST samples, not an entire wo/manuscript. Please write a cover letter that tells us: why you wrote the work, how it could "change the world" where you see it selling, how open you are to marketting your own work (a must) and your favorite writers/artists!

Include a bio of published work, studies and any activist causes/groups which have inspired your writing.

Representative Authors: 

Amalio Madueno, Taos Poetry Circus co-founder/feature poet, Taos, N.M. Ed Little Crow, Lakota former member of the American Indian Movement. Judy Hogan, North Carolina feminist poet.

We want work that is urgent and beautiful, that was written with lightning and a sense that tomorrow may never come. We want work that pushes edges and tells us something new. We love work that is personal and political—political in the largest sense, as in awareness of who has the power and how it is they came to have it. We publish interviews and book reviews and review-essays.

World Literature Today is the University of Oklahoma’s bimonthly magazine of international literature and culture, founded in 1927. The editors welcome submissions on contemporary literary and cultural topics addressing any geographic region or language area. By “contemporary,” we mean that our main focus is on the current literary scene--namely, authors who have been active in the 1990s and 2000s. The bulk of our coverage consists of essays, book reviews, fiction, poetry, and interviews.

We do not generally accept unsolicited poetry or fiction for publication. In terms of creative writing, we especially value translations from other languages but will equally consider work written originally in English. For critical studies of contemporary authors, literary topics, or cultural trends, our preference is for “essays” written in the tradition of clear and lively discussion intended for a broad audience, with a minimum of scholarly apparatus. Please include in your email or cover letter a brief explanation of how your essay would engage or enlarge our notion of world literature in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Prospective contributors are encouraged to consult recent issues of WLT for examples of our preferred style of writing.
