About

This is a world in which the loudest voices are the marginalized. This is a world of poetry, essays, creative nonfiction, and art that fits outside the mainstream literary scene, yet still of significant literary merit. We actively seek work from authors and creators from diverse and marginalized backgrounds and identities. We don’t care who has (not) published your work in the past. We are interested in hearing from those who are drowning. We have a special appreciation for the creations of 20-somethings whose misery is dashed aside as hipster apathy, melodrama, overemotional. Don’t restrict your writing to your tumblr. Tell us what you feel. Let us be the home for your weird, your emotional, your challenge. Tell us how culture/religion/love/society has failed you. We’re cool with the political. Get big with us. Go ambitious.

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.
