Another New Calligraphy's online journal publishes short works connected in its exploration of conflict, a term open to interpretation though ever present in these increasingly challenging times.

As in ANC's other endeavors, Impossible Task is always on the lookout for further opportunities to broaden the inclusivity of its community. Marginalized creators are highly encouraged to consider Another New Calligraphy and Impossible Task as a home for their work.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work exploring the human experience, our internal worlds, and life among others; these complex systems are often clearest in our slightest moments.

Another New Calligraphy has published printed works since 2009. Commonalities include mental health, identity, culture, ecology, and personal reflection. Please familiarize yourself with recent projects for a general sense of these themes and their past expression.

Poets Reading the News is a digital platform that publishes original poetry about current events. We believe in the power of poetry to transform the world and how we see each other. We call it journalism in verse.

We are, at heart, a newspaper – the revelation being that our copy is pure verse, produced by a diverse staff of poet-journalists from around the world, spanning disciplines, views, and geographies. What it comes down to is gripping writing about the world around us and in us.

Poets Reading the News publishes unsolicited and original poetry and prose about current events. Whenever possible, include links to news stories regarding the topic of your work. If you are integrating quotes or data into your writing, you must provide links to your sources.

We encourage writers of all backgrounds to submit their writing, especially poets of color, women poets, LGBTQI+ poets, and poets from countries and regions near and far.

To get more information and submit your writing, please visit our website. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to reading your poetry!

COG has multiple print issue subscription options, in addition to the free online issues.

Each issue of COG is a curiously constructed curation offered up by the students of Cogswell College. COG's writers thrill with skillfully wrought and cohesive narratives; insight and intensity; imagery and attitude - alternating nimbly between closely examined moments, characters or nuances and larger human themes. COG is not a venue for student work; rather, as of March 2018, COG had received submissions from writers working in 24 countries beyond the U.S.

In addition to publishing traditional text-based work, check out Cogitate - our audio broadcast - and the video series. We consider submissions in both categories, as well as cover art submissions.

MORIA is a national online literary magazine with an all-student editorial board, based at Woodbury University in greater Los Angeles. We accept poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from emerging and established writers in the United States and across the world. We publish twice-a-year, in the late fall and late spring.

While we accept all styles — including experimental, hybrid, and conventional forms — we aren’t interested in submissions of light verse, genre fiction, and any piece that references gratuitous violence or exploitative sexual imagery. We’re committed to publishing a diverse range of poets and writers. In our debut issue (2017), 73% of our authors were women and 24% were writers of color. We also published pieces from writers in their 20s to writers in their 70s — and every decade in between. We welcome work from traditionally under-represented groups, including women writers, indigenous writers, writers of color, writers who identify as LGBTQ, and writers with disabilities.

Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 50,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

We want work that is urgent and beautiful, that was written with lightning and a sense that tomorrow may never come. We want work that pushes edges and tells us something new. We love work that is personal and political—political in the largest sense, as in awareness of who has the power and how it is they came to have it. We publish interviews and book reviews and review-essays.
