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.

The goal of WTR is to create a literary space for those who identify as women poets in California and Nevada. We publish one poem per week online, and at the end of each year we publish the best of each month in a letterpress chapbook. We hope to build a community, and to that end we ask each contributor to write a short post about a woman poet the contributor admires. We're inclined toward narrative-leaning poetry that evokes a mood, but we're open to reading your best work, whatever that may be.

Before submitting, please read our archive to see the kind of poetry we publish.

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.

The Furious Gazelle is striving to provide the best collection of original writing and art from across the World Wide Web. We’re furious because we can never have enough submissions. Before you submit to the Furious Gazelle, ask yourself the following about your submission: Does it have a good story? Is it compulsively readable? Are you a living human being who has written some words? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, we encourage you to submit.

We are currently running a Halloween writing contest, with no entry fee. The first prize is $50 and a book in the genre of your choosing. Submission guidelines at http://thefuriousgazelle.com/submit/hall...

We love work with strong story and style; humor is great, too. We'll consider any form of writing.

We also have a column called Things That Make Us Furious for satirical essays and rants, which we would love to receive submissions for.

We publish work that minimizes, blurs, or exaggerates distinctions between genres and offer a shared space for experimental creative fiction and nonfiction, lyrical fiction, experimental poetry, and multimedia pieces. Small Po[r]tions issues have a print component with a focus on book arts and an online component featuring selections from the print issue along with media work.

Look through what we've published previously (if you can't purchase the print issues, we have representative work from each issue published online) to see the sort of work in which we are interested. We publish experimental poetry, prose, cross/post-genre work, intermedia writing, and multimedia art such as videopoetry and soundwork. If you have any questions about submitting, feel free to contact us at editors@smallportionsjournal.com.
