From the Editor

Sky Island Journal is an independent, free-access, online literary journal with an international reach; we are dedicated to discovering, curating, and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. Your best writing deserves an audience, and it is our singular mission to provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally. We publish well-established authors, side by side, with emerging writers. Sky Island Journal publishes quarterly, and we accept submissions year-round, via Submittable.


We publish poetry, flash fiction (under 1,000 words), and creative nonfiction (under 1,000 words). What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what “won’t fit” before we even try it on. When it comes to what we publish, simply send us your best work–about anything, from anywhere–and we’ll take it from there.


Sky Island Journal accepts submissions year-round, via Submittable. We are wolves; we’re always hungry, and we’re always on the hunt. We want to be the first literary journal to give your best writing a powerful, focused, international platform. Our readers deserve it, and so do you..
