JuxtaProse is an online literary journal that publishes fiction, nonfiction and poetry from around the world. Our contributors have included Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, and Man Booker Prize winners, and other acclaimed authors from fifteen different countries. Alongside these established voices, we make a concentrated effort to publish the work of emerging authors -- including students and previously unpublished authors. Each of our quarterly issues reaches over 10,000 readers.

We believe that good storytelling begins with character. While we will consider any story that possesses literary merit, genre fiction is not our emphasis and will be a particularly difficult sell.

We currently publish approximately 3% of the fiction submissions, 4% of the nonfiction submissions, and less than 1% of the poetry submissions we receive.

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.
