"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Friday Call for Submissions Love <3 The Hunger

The Hunger: Open for Submissions Until April 15th

Deadline: April 15, 2019

“The Hunger is a journal of visceral writing that publishes fiction, poetry, nonfiction, hybrid work, and visual art. The theme of “hunger” is not confined only to food, but hungers and thirsts of all kinds: the craving for connection, the human need to be filled or emptied, the devastating desires that define our most alive moments. Hungers can be sexual, romantic, familial, individualistic, spiritual, creative, sorrowful, conflicted, humanistic, and/or existential. Send us work that bleeds. We want to be devoured.”

Friday Call for Submissions Love <3 Oyster River

Oyster River Pages Call for Submissions – Special & Regular Issue

Deadline: May 31, 2019

Oyster River Pages is a literary and artistic collective seeking submissions of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and visual arts that stretch creative and social boundaries.

“We believe in the power of art to connect people to their own and others’ humanity. Because of this, we seek to feature artists whose voices have been historically decentered and marginalized. In addition to regular submissions, we are temporarily seeking submissions for our themed issue, Delta, which is reflective of change, transformation, expansion, unification, and of the liminal spaces between land and water.

Call for Submissions Love <3 The Disappointed Housewife

The Disappointed Housewife 

a new literary journal for writers, and readers, seeking something different.

Their Call:

“We like the idiosyncratic, the iconoclastic, the offbeat, the hard-to-categorize. Out of the universe of fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction, we want to attract work that plays with form and presentation. Work that’s not just outside the box but turns the box inside out.

We believe that imagination and the creative drive can guide literature toward a new stage in its evolution — a growth spurt. Multi-media, mash-ups, music, photography-as-writing: anything is possible.

As we like to say around here: Don’t disappoint the disappointed housewife.

Read our submission guidelines and send us your work if you think it will fit here. We’re listening.”

Friday Call for Submissions Love! K’in Still Reading for Inaugural Issue

K’in wants to read your beautiful work! 

Submission Details

Prose: 5000 words or less, open to content, form, structure.

Fiction: We welcome short stories of all shapes and sizes, from the mind-blowing traditional story to fiction that blurs the lines between forms, genre fiction, experimental fiction, etc. We also welcome flash and micro fiction.

Nonfiction: We’re looking for slow burns in a world of hot takes, questions asked instead of answers proved. We welcome a wide variety of nonfiction—traditional essay, narrative nonfiction, micro/flash memoir—and encourage experimentation, though not at the expense of factual truth. Too many true stories go untold, and we want to offer space to honor those voices.

Poetry: 3-5 poems, open to content, form, structure. Please don’t forget the power voice, sound, and time can have in poetry.

For all submissions, simultaneous submissions are permitted, but please let us know. To withdraw one part of a submission, please add a note in Submittable so that the information is instantly available to all editors. We will not process emailed withdrawal requests.
Experimental, traditional, playful, prayerful, celebratory, challenging: human—try us. Show us a new way to tell one of the millions of stories under that glorious sun.
