We?re emerging editors launching emerging writers. Our mission is simple: to give new writers and artists a place to start?an edge piece for their big-picture puzzle. And when we say ?new,? we mean it. This isn?t about elitism or exclusivity. EdgePiece is a place for anyone with a voice and the simple, human desire to have it heard. We?re your soap box, your mic stand, your stage?and we?re asking you to use us. We publish fiction, non-fiction, poetry, reviews, photography and art in our issues, which we release tri-annually.We never fully reject a manuscript; we work with you, editing your piece and suggesting improvements. This way, everyone gets experience and satisfaction from the process. That said? Let?s hear it.
Abalone Moon is a poetry and arts journal both thematic and eclectic in its choice of poetry and art. It features work by outstanding contemporary poets and artists.
Our purpose has always been to publish well-crafted poetry using the best electronic means available. Our highest priority is the quality of writing. We will also post companion media pieces such as artwork, video the published poem being read by the author and other mixed media items that the editors agree are relevant. Again, our highest priority is the written word. Everything else is secondary.
Our primary areas of focus include creative writing concerned with rural landscapes, sprawl/suburbia, finite space, the American West, and the American Deep South. We accept short fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and relevant essays or annotations. Consult our mission statement for more information

Paper Darts is committed to presenting high-quality content that captivates, but doesn't overwhelm, and culminates in a finished product that is, itself, a piece of art. The great aim of Paper Darts is to do away with the overwhelming text block that is most lit mags, and provide avid art lovers and literature buffs with a product that is as artistic as the content it offers. "Paper Darts represents everything that is good and pure about the Twin Cities art scene, and I mean that in the grittiest, sauciest, most titillating way possible...The three editors are like these mythical weird sisters who pluck exciting and divergent work from their surroundings, toss them into a bubbling caldron, and end up with this complex, aromatic ointment even more powerful than its parts." ---Maggie Ryan Sandford, Star Tribune
Writers interested in contributing to n+1 should note that we come out only three times each year, and that most if not all of the slots available for a given issue will have been filled by the editors many months before publication. That said, if you would like to brave the odds, the best submissions guidelines are those implied by the magazine itself. Read an issue or two through to get a sense of whether your piece might fit into n+1.

Writes for All is an independent press seeking to publish high quality fiction. Magazine issues will be available online and in print. Our mission if to publish meaningful stories that explore the human condition regardless of the genre, sub-genre, or style. We strive to break down the barriers of fiction and publish works that tackle a variety of subject matters. We find it improper to disqualify work based on the preconceived notions of form within a category. We understand that there are many ways to tell a story. We believe that work of merit transcends the genre in which it is associated.

Revolution House is the brainchild of a disparate group of writers who came together during the tumultuous early months of 2011, when the MFA application anxiety was high and the lows were lower than low. We had a dream of a sprawling farmhouse, a place where we could all escape the dragging monotony of reality. But it's difficult to find a house with fourteen bedrooms, so we ended up here instead, building platforms to launch other dreams. Most of us have never met face-to-face. We are a product of the digital age ?- we rely on Facebook, text messages, and e-mails. But we'll never meet most of you, our writers and readers, face-to-face, either. We rely on the connections forged through thought, through contact that isn't physical. Together, we will build that house, using words as our tools, as the brick and mortar, until we have created something from nothing at all. Revolution House doesn't care if you have a hundred publication credits or if this is your first attempt. Send us your poems, your stories, your moments of shining truth, and we will treat them as we want our own to be treated: with respect and compassion. Send us the work that moves you, for better or worse.
Barge Journal reads unsolicited submissions year round. Submit through our submissions manager on the website.
