Online magazine of socio-political speculative fiction: Feminist SF; Queer SF; Eco SF. (Currently closed to submissions; will reopen in 2011.)
MWCoast is an online literary magazine just getting off the ground. But don't judge us just because we're new. We've got a lot of ideas and the entire internet to work with. Expect big things from us in the future. What we want is pretty simple: to be the home for some of the best writing out there; to give otherwise unnoticed writers a chance to share their work with a larger community. We don't care who you are as much as we care what you have to say. We want to hear from you. We want to make sure your story gets told
The name 'eChook' stands for 'digital chapbook'. A by-product of the digital revolution is that people are reading more than ever. We publish ten minute stories to be read anywhere and everywhere– online ebooks, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, Kindle and Nook.
The choice of our online literary magazine's title comes from the word analects in literary criticism - selections of literary work. From the Greek, analekta -selected things. The Analectic publishes, fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry and short stories. We also offer creative writing contests. All work should be submitted electronically. Please see our submission guidelines, under, Guidelines. Then proceed to Submit Work. Our mission is to provide a voice for emerging writers. We encourage a variety of writing styles, genres and creative venues. We also accept established writers, so long as the work submitted has not been previously published. We strive to give every thoughtful creative writer a voice. We read all submissions, providing they follow the submission guidelines. Please allow at least three weeks for a response. Currently, The Analectic does not read or accept paper submissions of any type. All submissions should be placed by accessing the Submit Work section of this web site. At this time, we will gladly publish accepted works for free.
We are primarily seeking prose and poetry. Yes, that's broad, but we're seeking anything and everything. We are looking for anything that's playful, but not obtuse; experimental, but not contrived. We're mostly interested in things that say something, rather than things that talk about saying something. We aren't strict on word counts. However, because this is a shorter volume and we want to showcase a lot of writers, most of the prose pieces we accept are between 200-1,500 words. Most poems we like are no longer than 30ish lines. Of course, in this economy, we can fudge the numbers. We like writers ranging anywhere from John Barth to Vladimir Nabokov to Franz Kakfa to David Foster Wallace to Jonathan Ames to Sam Lipsyte to Blaster Al Ackerman to Haruki Murakami to Jorge Luis Borges to Daniel A.I.U. Higgs to Norman Mailer to Hunter S. Thompson to Jose Saramago to Freidrich Nietzsche. Fill in the blanks.
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.
