About

HEArt Online publishes literature and art that speak to our mission: promoting the role of artists as human rights activists through public recognition of art as a vehicle for social reform. Artists published in HEArt's 1997-2002 print journal run include Kim Addonizio, Martin Amis, Amiri Baraka, Jan Beatty, Dennis Brutus, Martín Espada, Nikki Giovanni, Marilyn Hacker, Allison Joseph, Linda McCarriston, Timothy Liu, Karl Mullen, Sonia Sanchez, Sapphire, Tim Seibles, Sekou Sundiata and Stacey Waite. Our legacy set the bar high. Today we seek unpublished, artistically crafted, powerful poems, stories, essays, photos, visual art and music that challenge the status quo, fight discrimination and promote social justice by tackling hard issues of gender, race, class, sex, etc.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
