Muse /A Journal (myoo-zay) seeks to curate a museum-esque experience by pairing the best in lyric essays, poetry, and experimental cross-genre verse. We seek to publish meaningful poetry that affects the reader in a way which expands our understanding of life, the natural world, and human nature. 

Muse /A Journal (myoo-zay) seeks lyrical, playful, moving, linguistically-inventive, unique, experimental, moving, honest, diction-sensitive, perhaps collaborative, economical, attentive, vested, clever, touching, REAL work. If this describes your work in any way, we’d love to see it.

Waxing & Waning is a literary journal that seeks what’s on the fringe. Whatever is deep and true. The moon represents this idea: what is dark, what is brooding, what is wild. We want to feed the beast in you, the one buried beneath layers of manners and anxiety and Banana Republic. Work submitted to Waxing & Waning should be honest and well executed. It should scream coherently; it should drag something out of us that we haven’t seen before; it should rip out our black hearts and show them to us. Bring us the work everyone else (including you) is afraid of.

Proper manuscript format will get you bonus points. If your fiction/creative nonfiction is longer than 5,000 words, it must merit the space it will take. For poetry, we're already a little skeptical about your Howl-long epic.

all the sins is a quarterly digital magazine that encourages writers and artists to have courage and to sin against staid storytelling. Break rules, push boundaries and tell new stories in new ways. Just tell a good story. It was conceived as a blend of visual, digital and written art that takes storytelling to new limits, asks questions and explores the worlds in which art is made. Responses, challenges and reinventions welcome. We also publish regular features on arts-related topics and encourage submissions for these.

We are particularly interested in work that uses the internet and digital media for the opportunities they present. By 'sinful' we mean art that represents voices and stories that have not traditionally been represented in literary arts magazines - we don't mean erotica, though sex may have a role to play in a given work.

We have no restrictions on the content we publish, except that we’re passionate about publishing new perspectives — new ideas, new voices, new worlds, new challenges, new ways of seeing, etc.— a theme that can take an infinite number of shapes, including speculative fiction, experimental poetry, political essays, narrative reportage, and virtually everything else.

To submit your work, email the editors at arcturusmag@gmail.com. Please address the appropriate editor (see the masthead at the bottom of the About page) and use the subject line: GENRE: Title of Work (ex. FICTION: My Story). Provide a brief introduction and attach your work as either a Word Doc or PDF. We normally respond to submissions within one (1) month.

The Scores is the literary journal of the University of St Andrews, under an advisory team of esteemed professors and instructors, including Don Paterson, Robert Crawford, Kathleen Jamie, Oli Hazzard, and Peter McKay. We seek to publish a very wide range of poetry (as can be seen in our current issue) in English and the languages of Scotland, along with poems translated into English and reviews of recent work in our bi-annual issues. We like work that thrills, work that moves, work that plays along the cliff edge.

We publish 3-6 featured pieces every two weeks--focusing primarily on poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction.

Our digital gallery publishes photo essays, visual poetry, and artists from southwestern Virginia.

On occasion, we invite authors published with Roanoke Review to contribute podcast readings and interviews.

Roanoke Review was founded in 1967 by Pulitzer prize-winning poet Henry Taylor at Roanoke College, where it remains to this day. For the past fifty years, the Review has promoted both established writers and new voices. We seek to be an accessible read, intent on publishing down-to-earth writers with a sense of place, a sense of language, and—perhaps most importantly—a sense of humor.

Love what you send us. We hope we will, too.

We accept work in all shapes and sizes with an aim to keep track of new, interesting material. We are interested in the cacophony of voices that exist in emerging and established writers alike. These several voices can be disparate, but given the right opportunity—not necessarily a common subject or genre, but a consistent investigation of beauty, form and imagination—they can reach harmony. Jerry strives to provide an opportunity for a wide array of voices to be brought together because of their strength of purpose, conception, and realization.

Please have a look at our past issues to get a sense of what we are looking for. That said, quality and new voices are what we prize over everything else.
