Broad Street is an interdisciplinary non-profit magazine featuring the very best that creative non-fiction has to offer in an ever-expanding set of subgenres. We are an intersection where truth-telling prose, poetry, artwork, and interviews with storytellers in various media (e.g., sculpture, costume design, cgi, memoir), can converge to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not necessarily through an academic lens. Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professorial colleagues.

Dare to push yourself in new ways. We want beautifully crafted, risky, previously unpublished non-fiction narratives: reflective essays, reportage, experimental truth-telling, poetry, prose poetry, photo essays, original artwork, and interviews (query first). Memoirs should be about more than "me"--offer insight into cultural phenomena, etc. We CRAVE reportage and researched essays, but no academic bluster, please! Think NPR. Think New Yorker. Think Broad Street. And please read a copy to be sure you write what we publish.
Each issue has a theme broadly applied; we appreciate fresh approaches. Follow directions on our online submissions page.
We give each piece painstaking editorial attention that rivals that of any book publisher.

Grist: A Journal of the Literary Arts seeks high quality submissions from both emerging and established writers. We publish craft essays and interviews as well as fiction, nonfiction, and poetry—and we want to see the best work you have to offer, regardless of form, style, or subject matter. We prefer writing that is accessible, and experimental work that shows an awareness of what is being subverted and why. We value fiction and poetry that is aware of the history that has come before it.

Please follow the submissions guidelines on our website.

Versal, the literary & arts journal out of Amsterdam, seeks work that is urgent, involved, and unexpected. A publication celebrating translocal intersections and cross-cultural dialogue, Versal is internationally renowned for the quality of work published by up-and-coming as well as established writers, and for its strong attention to design and production values. Versal has been featured many times in Poets & Writers Magazine, including being named among the "top indie innovators" (November/December 2010).

We especially encourage works from outside of the US, works that blend genre, works in translation, works from writers and artists of color, works from writers and artists with disabilities, and works from writers and artists of marginalized orientations, backgrounds, and gender identities.
