The Flexible Persona is an independent magazine of writing that publishes both online and biannual print issues.

We read for engaging, character-driven fiction in which something happens. Show us the story. We are open to all genres.

We crave creative nonfiction with a clear narration that explores both the large and the small of what it means to be human. 

We also read for sharp-edged poetry.

Our annual flash fiction contest opens for entries from mid-October to mid-December, with winners and finalists announced in mid-January.

Please read your story aloud before submitting. This will help you avoid the syntactical problems that are often revealed through an oral reading. We do not charge a reading fee for mailed submissions. However, if you wish to submit electronically, there is a fee associated to alleviate the costs of our online submission manager.

Rivet publishes writing that breaks from the mainstream to surprise, challenge, and delight. Each issue brings together poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that test the boundaries of form and content--a surrealist sestina followed by a lyric essay on multiracial identity then a flash fiction set in humanity’s far future--the intersections as intriguing as the works themselves. Rivet writers explore their craft fearlessly and thoughtfully, and our editors are dedicated to providing them with a professional venue for publishing experimental work.

We are interested in: surreal, fabulist, and remix aesthetics; political and controversial topics; hybrid and multimedia things that play well online; literary takes on popular genres; reviews of books/media and interviews of people that would be of interest to our audience. We are not interested in: shock value alone; middle class ennui. Most of all, surprise us with something we’ve never seen before, that moves and reveals. We believe in the author-editor relationship, and we work with each writer to fully realize their vision. If that’s something you are as excited about as we are, then we want to read your work.

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.

Engage difficulty.
Avoid adverbs.
Surprise us.
Risk failure.
Do not dwell in abstraction; engage the senses.

Clade Song is a space dedicated to the literary examination of the animal world and all of its behavioral niches from the bacterial mat to the predation of the auk, all of which impact and interrelate with the humanosphere.

At Clade Song we are interested in the evolution of poetry from the phoneme outwards, from raw, exclamatory yelping to the insect hymns sung to enshrine the concrete and the nonce.

Another New Calligraphy publishes limited-edition books and CDs lovingly designed and handmade in our Chicago home. By providing our collaborators' work with a singular visual and tactile presence, we hope to make it stand out in the great American media overload. Creating art in mass quantities lessens its value and cheapens its spirit. We feel the only thing that outshines the quiet thrill of making something beautiful with our hands is the satisfaction of passing it along to someone else's so they may reflect on the time, effort, and care that went into its creation.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work successfully balancing originality and sincerity. We love music and writing that simply exists within its own space, rather than making concessions to genre or attempts at mass accessibility. Given the nature of our books and the philosophy guiding their production, we typically prefer shorter written material.

At this time, our niche may seem to be primarily of a poetic nature but we always have our eyes set on broadening our catalog. We are currently on the lookout for more music, nonfiction writing (not memoirs), and quality work by marginalized voices. In term of writing, we are most interested in thematically linked work rather than general collections.
