Here is our very popular list of magazines that are print magazines taking online submissions. A few years ago this was a very big deal, and it still is. Now most large and even commercial magazines take online submissions. At one time this was not the case.

Either way this list will give you an avenue to publish your writing in a print magazine. Some of our new and emerging magazines are of course much easier to publish your work in than the older more well-established magazines. If you want to see your work in print, this list if for you. We believe it will give you the best chance of seeing this happen.

We have been listing these print magazines taking online submissions for over 10 years.  Some of these listings are brand new, others may be out of date. If you see a listing that needs to be updated, please leave us a comment. We do take action. 

Good luck publishing your work.

Anobium

Anobium

Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Arthropoda Class: Insecta Order: Coleoptera Infraorder: Bostrichiformia Superfamily: Bostrichoidea Family: Anobiidae Subfamily: Anobiinae Genus: Anobium (?Bookworm,? in other words.) Anobium is literature; a collusion of molecules, fused into a conceptual (w)hole. As a conceptual entity, Anobium is the headbirth of Benjamin van Loon and ?Mary J. Levine,? who doesn?t exist. Anobium is Chicago-based, independent publisher who specializes in the compilation and assemblage of strange, surreal and insectile literature. Our aim is to produce consciously designed and intelligently written contemporary literature. Those who pronounce auguries about the Death of the Book fail to realize that what is death for some is rebirth for others. We believe technology compliments our interaction with artifactual literature; it does not demolish it. Our relatively ?short? volumes (80-100 pages) and chapbooks will read easily, store safely and wear evenly - as a good book should. Read More
