Collateral is an online literary journal affiliated with the University of Washington Tacoma. We showcase high quality creative writing and art that explores the impact of the military and military service in spaces beyond the combat zone.
We want poetry, CNF, fiction and visual art that pushes the boundaries of exploring the impact of war from a range of perspectives. Our mission is to publish work that puts a spotlight on all those spaces beyond the combat zone.
We’re looking for work that’s bizarre, authentic, subtle, outrageous, indefinable, raw, paradoxical. We’ve got our eyes on the horizon. Send us writing that lives just between the land and the sky.
Please note that we accept simultaneous submissions (and appreciate acknowledgement of such submissions), but do not accept reprints/previously published work. Please include a third-person bio in your cover letter. For examples of the work we tend to publish, please consult our current issue and online archives.

The personal essays, short stories, interviews, poetry, and photographs that appear in The Sun’s pages explore the challenges we face and the moments when we rise to meet them.

Published monthly by the editors of Creative Nonfiction magazine, each issue of True Story showcases one exceptional essay by one exceptional writer. From issue to issue, this new mini-magazine features the widest possible variety of voices and styles and subjects. Our editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines. We’re open to all types of creative nonfiction, from immersion reportage to personal essay to memoir.
Please do send work that blends style with substance, and reaches beyond the personal to tell us something new about the world. We're drawn to stories that balance a strong narrative (i.e. something happens) with a teaching or reflective element (i.e. the something that happens matters for some reason). Please do include your complete contact information and keep us informed of the status of simultaneous submissions. Please don't send poetry.

Please read the submission guidelines before submitting.
all the sins is a quarterly digital magazine that encourages writers and artists to have courage and to sin against staid storytelling. Break rules, push boundaries and tell new stories in new ways. Just tell a good story. It was conceived as a blend of visual, digital and written art that takes storytelling to new limits, asks questions and explores the worlds in which art is made. Responses, challenges and reinventions welcome. We also publish regular features on arts-related topics and encourage submissions for these.
We are particularly interested in work that uses the internet and digital media for the opportunities they present. By 'sinful' we mean art that represents voices and stories that have not traditionally been represented in literary arts magazines - we don't mean erotica, though sex may have a role to play in a given work.
