We are actively looking for unique modes of storytelling that fall outside conventional boundaries while still maintaining the core essence of "story." We accept stories in all forms and formats, especially those we haven't thought of yet.
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.
Two Thirds North is an international annual publication of poetry, short fiction, short non-fiction, graphics and photography. We seek works with a view to the world, insight into the details of the human condition and relationships in it. Themes are not specified.
Poetry in translation to English
For this year’s anthology we are also inviting new, high quality translations of poetry from other languages into English.
English submissions only. Please submit a maximum of five poems, two stories or eight graphic images. Color graphics used only on cover images, and online publication
For translations, please include a copy of the original poem and all copyright information, as we would like to print selected translations as facing-page presentations.
If the original poem is in a non-Roman alphabet, please include a transliteration of the original.
We would also like a brief explanation of the aesthetic and formal choices you made in the process of your translation in order to understand what makes your translation fresh or vital (we will not publish these explanations).
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.
POST ROAD seeks to publish up and coming writers along with more established names. We publish a wide range of styles, from realist to experimental and everything in between.
Please send us your best work, after reading a bit of the work we publish.
We publish twice yearly and accept unsolicited poetry, fiction, nonfiction, short plays and monologues, and visual art submissions via our Online Submissions Manager.
Our submissions periods run from February 1 to April 1 for the winter issue, and from June 1 to August 1 for the spring issue. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but we ask to be informed immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.
Mission: To publish the best writing, thought and information about work, or lack thereof, while providing a forum for readership to connect and respond.
WORK is dedicated to celebrating the daily grind: white collar, blue collar, pink collar, sex work, food service, freelancing and more.
WORK has an intentionally bland format, so that it can be enjoyed while you’re still on the clock. WORK is subversive, so you can be subversive at work.
Please be previously unpublished. Feel free to submit WORD or RTF docs via WORK's online submission form. If submitting via email, please use the word submission in the subject line. Please attach .doc format. No PDFs.
The editors of Rock & Sling want to be surprised, more than anything. Surprised at the solidity of your work, the beauty of it, the tension in it, the argument of it, the freshness of it, the experiment of it. We live in a mysterious, challenging, fraught world, and we look for work that engages, challenges, or extends those realities. Work that puts us in peril.
Do not dwell in abstraction; engage the senses.
Gigantic Sequins is print-based and biannual. Our black & white journal is known for its quality writing and its unique design/aesthetic. We accept work from unpublished writers in addition to those who have an already established voice. We enjoy publishing writers who have their hands in various sorts of figurative creative cookie jars. We are interested in cultivating an artistic community over a widespread area through our uniquely designed journal and are known for promoting our past as well as our current contributors' achievements.
Please do not list your previous accomplishments/publications in the cover letter area. Please send us your best work. Please become familiar with our magazine by at least browsing our website's select archived pieces we have there before submitting. Please only send an email inquiry about the status of your submission if four months have passed. Please alert us ASAP if a simultaneous submission has been accepted elsewhere. Please love literature and art and support the small, independent magazines/journals where you want to see you work published.
We wholeheartedly welcome unsolicited submissions for our annual Nomadic Journal. We also welcome unsolicited book manuscripts of the following genres: children's, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, or adult.
Experiment. Take chances.
