The Wax Paper is a broadsheet publication open to all forms of written word, imagery, and collected conversation.

The first priority of the Wax Paper is to expand our understanding of the people we share the world with, and in doing so, expand our understanding of ourselves. Pieces will be selected on their ability to illuminate the humanity and significance of the subjects that inhabit the work. The Wax Paper is inspired by the life of Louis “Studs” Terkel. 

Please read our mission statement and send work that corresponds with our mission

The editors of Bear Review are open to a wide variety of poetry, and they read submissions all year. The magazine publishes two issues a year: one in the fall, and one in the spring. 

We’re big readers, so we admire pieces that make the old new. We also dig aesthetic competence and a poet's understanding of how their piece is situated within or outside of genre and literary tradition. That said, we really do admire experimentation and blurred genres, so long as the writer brings the heat.

Our only criteria when reviewing poetry: your writing is alive on the page, is clear enough for the reader, has urgency or something at stake.

Alchemy is committed to publishing quality, contemporary translations of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction creative writing. It publishes creative translations and adaptations. Alchemy is based in the University of California, San Diego’s Literature and Linguistics departments and is edited and published by UCSD students.

It is our belief that translation can teach us new things about writing and about language itself. Please review our submission guidelines; we welcome translations by students of any level and by emerging translators fewer than five years out of school. Don't forget that we are interested in both traditional translations and experimental translations, including homophonic, homolinguistic, and other poetic forms. We love textual, visual, audio, and other formats, too.

Waxwing is a literary journal promoting the tremendous cultural diversity of contemporary American literature, alongside international voices in translation. The editors believe that American voices are, at their cores, both multicultural and multinational, and so the editors’ mission is to include American writers from all cultural identities — in terms of race, ethnicity, indigenous tribe, gender, class, sexuality, age, education, ability, language, religion, and region — alongside international voices, published bilingually. 

Waxwing publishes poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, reviews, art, and music, as well as international literature in translation. Waxwing currently accepts submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translations; all other content is solicited.

Due to the high number of submissions and Submittable’s fees for magazines, Waxwing caps submissions at 300/month—submitting at the beginning of the month improves your chances of catching us before we hit the limit. If you are unable to submit due to closure, please come back and submit the next month.

We seek to publish—in paper and ink—the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved." 

We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”

Foundlings Press is a literary publisher based in Buffalo, New York. While the core of the Foundlings catalog will always be devoted to contemporary poetry, the press also seeks nonfiction, journalism, memoir, art and literary criticism, visual art and photography, lyrics, and hybrid works that defy categorization. The press has also sought works in translation and has republished exceptional books that have fallen out of print. Since its beginnings as a staple-bound zine, Foundlings has been characterized by found or stolen text and images, heteroglossia, and an effort to place design in dialogue with the writer and the reader.

Deep Overstock was started in 2018 by booksellers who realized their coworkers were paid to shelve books, but were working on their own writing and had dreams of shelving their own books. They created a journal that supported booksellers in that dream by opening a space to publish their writing and challenging them to write in genres they might not have tried before.

Find our current theme guidelines here: https://deepoverstock.com/submission-gui...

In your bio, please include any bookselling experience you might have had in the past. Mention if you worked at a library or bookstore, or if you have ever had any stewardship for a library you yourself did not own.

Named after the “American haiku” co-invented by Jack Collom and Robert Kelly, and inspired by the sense of poetry as correspondence, The Lune's first editions were unbound chapbooks housed in pre-stamped envelopes and sold at bookstores along the Front Range.

With an emphasis on contemplative and collaborative poetics, our catalogue is shaped around the contemporary poet's sense of wonder, delight in experiment, and concern for humanity.

Scoundrel Time is a nonprofit online literary journal launched in response to the 2016 U.S. presidential election. It publishes creative works—fiction, essays, poetry, humor, music, and visual art—that respond to the threats against freedom, democracy, people and cultures. It believes stories told in any form can remind people of their humanity, encourage understanding, embrace empathy, and reject hate.

Please take a look at our site, and read what we've published so far. Note that we are not looking for venting or diatribes. We're interested in works that tell stories, in whatever form. Please see additional guidelines on our site from our fiction editor, Karen Bender, and our poetry editor, Daisy Fried. Fiction and poetry can be submitted via Submittable. All other genres (creative nonfiction, humor, music, and art) should be queried first by email.
