We publish work that minimizes, blurs, or exaggerates distinctions between genres and offer a shared space for experimental creative fiction and nonfiction, lyrical fiction, experimental poetry, and multimedia pieces. Small Po[r]tions issues have a print component with a focus on book arts and an online component featuring selections from the print issue along with media work.

Look through what we've published previously (if you can't purchase the print issues, we have representative work from each issue published online) to see the sort of work in which we are interested. We publish experimental poetry, prose, cross/post-genre work, intermedia writing, and multimedia art such as videopoetry and soundwork. If you have any questions about submitting, feel free to contact us at editors@smallportionsjournal.com.

Diode Poetry Journal is looking for poetry that excites and energizes, that uses language that crackles and sparks. We’re looking for poetry from all points on the arc, from formal to experimental (no light verse or erotic poetry, please). Simultaneous submissions are welcomed, but please notify us if they're accepted elsewhere. Diode does not accept previously published work.

Hunger Mountain is both a print and online journal of the arts. We publish fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, visual art, young adult and children’s writing, and literary odds and ends. Our print issue comes out annually in the early spring, and our online content changes on a regular basis. Our mission is to cultivate engagement with and conversation about the arts by publishing high-quality, innovative literary and visual art by both established and emerging artists, and by offering opportunities for interactivity and discourse.

Please do send us your best work. Please don't send us detective stories. We’re currently accepting submissions in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and children’s literature. The theme for our 2017 print issue is "masked/unmasked" and we hope to receive submissions that interpret that theme in broad and unusual ways.

Since the magazine’s inception in 1980, editors and readers have worked to keep alive the journal’s tradition of publishing both established and emerging writers who uphold the highest standards of innovative prose and poetry.

We have eyes for work that is both innovative in form/content and heart-wrenching in theme. Send good lit!

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.

Ploughshares is a journal of new writing, and two out of three issues per year are guest-edited by prominent writers who explore different personal visions, aesthetics, and literary circles, with each year's Winter issue staff-edited. 50% of each issue is directly solicited by the guest editor, and the remaining 50% is selected from unsolicited manuscripts. Ploughshares Solos, a series launched in 2012, digitally publishes long stories and novella length work as standalone singles. The series is staff edited. See submission guidelines for details.

Please note that we charge a $3 service fee for online submissions  (subscribers may submit online free of charge). This is not a reading fee. Mail submissions are still accepted free of charge.
