Provocative reading. Literary, engaged, independent, forward-leaning. Exceptional fiction. Unexpected essays. Voices to be reckoned with... Our fiction belongs to a broad range of traditions. Our non-fiction explores the different ways we engage our culture and ourselves.
Cobalt is a quarterly literary magazine published online. We also publish an annual print issue, and will be rolling out an all-baseball issue in July 2013. Each issue will feature fiction, non-fiction and poetry of the highest caliber, as well as interviews with some of the most influential writers in the literary community. We seek to publish quality creative work and promote the literary arts, as well as those who celebrate them.
Generally, we love the "wow" factor. If your work leaves a lasting impression with the genre editor, you've got a good shot. We like things that grip the edge of traditional forms. Experimental is fine, but there should be a focus - something that holds it all together. We are very competitive, so you should be sending your best work. Snail mail submissions are not recommended, as our editors only meet a few times between each issue. Online submissions are encouraged.
Lantern Review aims to provide a virtual space in which to showcase Asian American poetry and to engage with issues relevant to its production and dissemination. We seek to publish expertly crafted work in a variety of forms and aesthetics, including traditional and experimental pieces, hybrid forms, multimedia work, and new translations. We welcome pieces from anglophone writers of all ethnic backgrounds whose work interests itself in critical questions relevant to the Asian diaspora in North America, as well as work created collaboratively in a community context.
We read during limited periods of approximately 2-3 months, and accept poetry submissions ONLY through our online form (not via e-mail). We are open to submissions from writers of all ethnic backgrounds. Your submission does not have to directly address a “big question” about Asian American identity; nor does it have to take place in America or Asia (in fact, we particularly like work that breaks expected notions of what “Asian American poetry” is or can be). However, please keep in mind that we are seeking to publish work that engages with critical questions directly relevant to our mission.

The Asian American Literary Review is a space for those who consider the designation "Asian American" a fruitful starting point for artistic vision and community. In showcasing the work of established and emerging writers, the journal aims to incubate dialogues and, just as importantly, open those dialogues to regional, national, and international audiences of all constituencies. Published biannually, AALR features fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, translations, comic art, interviews, and book reviews.
Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please indicate if you are submitting the same work elsewhere, and please notify us immediately if you place it elsewhere. Please submit work as a Microsoft Word compatible document attachment. Title the document in the following fashion: last name, first name, genre, title (e.g. Far.SuiSin.Fiction.IntheLandoftheFree). Include a brief biographical note with your query letter. Previously unpublished material only. Standard response time is 4-6 weeks, but please bear with us if we take longer to reply. Please limit submissions to 1 per calendar year.
The Montréal Review is a nonpartisan online magazine. We publish book and art reviews, literary criticism, and articles on politics, philosophy, theology, history, art, and music.
Our work explores how place shapes identity, imagination, and understanding. The journal is published bi-annually online and features fiction, poetry, nonfiction, visual arts, reviews, and more. We also publish poetry chapbooks through our Gloria E. Anzaldúa Poetry Prize and Emerging Poet Submissions and prose chapbooks through our Newfound Prose Prize.
We obey no genre and take anything from limericks to fantasy to genres yet invented. Our key desires are originality, accessibility and quality. We like work with a point, something to say or some sort of inner majic that gives greater meaning to the pretty words and thrilling plots. That said, we're not really sure what we’re looking for until we've seen it, so give us a try. Published online monthly, Red Fez Publications features poetry and prose outside of the narrow, academic stream. Red Fez is committed to bringing light to underground and under-recognized writers and writing.
Please do NOT send snail mail submissions. Use the submission form on the website. Read the guidelines and past issues to get a feel for what we like.
