Fiction Open

We believe a good story is one that tells about perennial human conditions and complexities in unexpected ways. As our name suggests, we are interested in voices from unexpected places like the barrios. From the border towns and south of the tracks. From the public schools and the inner-city sidewalks. We listen for voices that are seldom heard, but speak truth in whatever color.

Nonfiction Open

Clifford Geertz spoke of anthropological writings as being "fictions; fictions, in the sense that they are 'something made', 'something fashioned'—the original meaning of fictiō—not that they are false, unfactual, or merely 'as if' thought experiments." From this vein, we are looking for creative nonfiction that uses literary elements to bring stories to life and engage the reader. We encourage dispatches that tap into gonzo, unconventional, and decolonial styles and positions—literary techniques that disrupt and challenge Western conceptions about what nonfiction can and should be. However, this refusal to engage in stylistic norms for nonfiction should still be literarily generative; they should subscribe to the mantra of what Cary Wolfe refers to as "openness from closure."

Poetry Open

There are many moments in life. Things that go unsaid. Words that stay in the soul and do not escape. These words dwell in the mind, and words like, “should” or “could” become part of the everyday vocabulary. Perhaps you have poetry that is screaming to be let out. We want and look for poetry that is hard-earned. This section is dedicated to all those poets who have something to say, and to those who can’t find the right words to say in pivotal moments—for all those verses that made up lost letters that returned unopened. Put it down and write and let us read your work.

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.
