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.

Please submit up to a total of 5 previously unpublished poems, .mp3 files, or compressed video files.

• Poems should be typed in an easy-to-read 12 point font.

Another New Calligraphy publishes handmade books and music. We have enjoyed the quiet thrill of making and sharing since 2009.

Another New Calligraphy guides writers and musicians in the realization, documentation, and promotion of their work. By providing our releases with a singular visual and tactile presence, we hope to deliver small moments of wonder outside the great media overload. Our catalog strives to showcase marginalized voices without exploiting the stories they tell or the communities they represent.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work comfortable within its own space, rather than making concessions to convention or attempts at mass accessibility. Please familiarize yourself with some of our recent projects. Commonalities include identity, mental health, history, cultural studies, and respect for the natural world. The music we have released exemplifies but a small portion of what we would love to help bring to life.

Given the philosophy behind our books and their production, we prefer shorter written material. While our niche may seem primarily of a poetic nature, we always have our eyes on other modes of expression. We are currently on the lookout for more music and nonfiction, and are most interested in thematically linked manuscripts rather than generalized collections.

  • Novel- and novella-length fiction. We look for work that has something of the "rare and strange" about it: the gothic or grotesque, the surreal or magical.
  • Short (20–40K words) hybrid works: fictional or quasi-fictional encyclopedias, collections, catalogs, bestiaries, dictionaries.

We accept submissions through Submittable. https://lanternfishpress.submittable.com... Do not email us your submission; it will not be considered. Please NO short story collections, poetry, romance, YA, or inspirational.

The Letters Page literary journal is published by the University of Nottingham School of English, and edited by writer in residence, Professor Jon McGregor. We’re interested in exploring what letter writing means to people - and has meant since writing was invented - in their literary cultures and their personal lives. We’ll be publishing essays, memoir, fiction, travelogue, reportage, poetry, criticism, interviews… any creative form of writing, so long as it comes to us framed as a letter.

• The letter should be handwritten on a single side of A4 (or your local equivalent), and sent in the post, with a return address on the back of the envelope. • You may include illustrations. • Enclose contact details on a separate sheet. A transcript may be requested. • The letter should be addressed to a notional ‘reader’ (and should balance the tone of address between the ‘collective’ reader of a journal and the ‘individual’ reader of a forwarded letter); the letter should not address or refer to the editor. • The letter should include some reference to the time/place of its writing and/or sending. • Your submission should be postmarked with a date no later than the stated deadline for submissions.

Lotus-eater is a literary magazine based in Rome. We are looking for daring, unusual, and inspiring writing. Our ambition is two-fold: to publish high-quality poetry and prose in the English language; and to translate the best contemporary Italian writing so as to expose local writers to an international audience. We are also interested in critical reviews of literary works.

Broad Street is an interdisciplinary non-profit magazine featuring the very best that creative non-fiction has to offer in an ever-expanding set of subgenres. We are an intersection where truth-telling prose, poetry, artwork, and interviews with storytellers in various media (e.g., sculpture, costume design, cgi, memoir), can converge to be enjoyed by readers and writers deeply engaged with the culture, though not necessarily through an academic lens. Your smart best friend should enjoy Broad Street as much as your theory-steeped professorial colleagues.

Dare to push yourself in new ways. We want beautifully crafted, risky, previously unpublished non-fiction narratives: reflective essays, reportage, experimental truth-telling, poetry, prose poetry, photo essays, original artwork, and interviews (query first). Memoirs should be about more than "me"--offer insight into cultural phenomena, etc. We CRAVE reportage and researched essays, but no academic bluster, please! Think NPR. Think New Yorker. Think Broad Street. And please read a copy to be sure you write what we publish.
Each issue has a theme broadly applied; we appreciate fresh approaches. Follow directions on our online submissions page.
We give each piece painstaking editorial attention that rivals that of any book publisher.
