We welcome poetry, short story and art submissions from all people and places. Send us your most oneiric, moonlit work.

We enjoy writing that’s dream-like but tactile—something that lets one feel the moonbeams between the fingertips. 

To submit, email us at editors@sublunaryreview.com with the subject line Fiction Submission, Poetry Submission or Art Submission. Please include a brief third-person bio. No graphic violence or gratuitous sex, please. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published fiction or poetry. After submitting, please wait one month before submitting again. We accept Russian language submissions; they will be translated into English for publication.

Fecund highlights exceptional works of new abundance. The magazine is a medium through which writers and visual artists are exquisitely showcased and paid for their work. Fecund publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, theory, criticism, fashion writing, and visual art via interdisciplinary media (text, audio, video, new media).

Although we don’t conform to one aesthetic, we respond to work that challenges traditional forms or embraces liminality.

Maine Review Publications is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to making contemporary literature accessible to readers and writers of all incomes.

No personal information (such as name, email, social media handles, etc.) should appear on your submission, in the title field, or file name.

Send us your proudest personal essay, your classic short story, your reboot of the villanelle, or your weirdest experimental text. Send us your flash fiction or nonfiction. Send your epistle, erasure, hybrid, prose poem, or micro memoir. Send us the story of your life lived in your body.

Pocket Samovar is an international literary magazine dedicated to underrepresented post-Soviet writing, art & diaspora. We originated in 2019 as a group of Jack Kerouac School students influenced—but not determined—by our Soviet cultural memory. As a multilingual print and online publication, we aspire to serve as a virtual tearoom, contributing to the dialogue between North American and Eurasian literary community and expanding the possibilities of writing.

Night Picnic is a bilingual journal of literature and art that publishes work in both English and Russian. The magazine translates authors’ work into Russian. The editors accept novels, novellas, plays, short and flash stories, fairytales for adults, poetry, interviews, essays (including popular science essays), letters to the editors, and artwork. 

We encourage authors to submit all that is strange, dark, jubilant, complex, confusing, scary, mystical, and multidimensional. We do not publish memoirs, heavy science fiction, political essays, and pornography. We do not publish manuscripts with chauvinistic and fascistic tendencies. You must be at least 18 years old to submit.
