Call for Submissions: UCity Review

The UCity Review publishes twice a year, both on the web and as a limited edition letterpress print edition. Each issue highlights a noteworthy writer, whom the editors believe deserves more exposure. Each issue includes approximately twelve authors.

UCity Review considers poetry in February of each year. We will strive to provide the status of submissions by the end of March of each year. As for the likes and dislikes of UCity editors, take these words from Zbigniew Herbert:
In Poland, we think of the poet as prophet; he is not merely a maker of verbal forms or an imitator of reality. The poet expresses the deepest feelings and the wildest awareness of people... The language of poetry differs from the language of politics. And, after all, poetry lives longer than any conceivable political crisis. The poet looks over a broad terrain and over vast stretches of time. He makes observations on the problems of his own time, to be sure, but he is a partisan only in the sense that he is a partisan of the truth. He arouses doubts and uncertainties and brings everything into question.
Submissions can be emailed to editors[at] Please include the author's name and submission date in the subject line. We accept the following file formats: .doc; .pdf. Please limit poetry submissions to six poems, and please do not submit simultaneous submissions.

For more information, please visit our website:

Call for Submissions: The Whistling Fire

The Whistling Fire is proud to announce our ongoing Guest Editor Themed Selection. Throughout the year, we will have various Guest Editors taking over The Whistling Fire for an entire month and selecting special themed work of their choice. The lucky few selected will be published every Tuesday of their Guest Editor's month. The Guest Editor for May is David Crawford, a graduate of the UC Riverside Palm Desert Low Residency MFA. He gives the following message for submitting writers:
What place do we have for humor in literature? We know the weighty subjects of the world are approached with a deferential reverence, but who is to say we cannot use humor just as effectively. Poets such as Billy Collins and Ron Padgett make humor a regular part of their work. Narrative writers like David Sedaris draw us into their world with the comedic exposé of self. We find humor in the larger premise and in the tiniest moment. So what can we create with humor? I want to hear the biggest subjects treated with humor that doesn't depreciate the weight or the importance of the topic; the humor of the character, the humor of the experience, the humor of language, bring it all to the table.
The Whistling Fire will be accepting submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry under 3000 words. Please send your submissions to whistlingfire[at] Please include the words "May Editor" in your subject line. No more than two submissions per author. All submissions must be sent as an attachment (MS WORD preferred). Simultaneous submissions are accepted. Previously published work is also allowed as long as the author retains the rights. Please include a short, third-person bio for our contributor's page. The deadline for submissions is April 23, 2011.

There is also still time to submit to our April Guest Editor, Lindsey Lewis Smithson, whose deadline is March 26. For more information, please visit

Subject: Call for creative writing submissions for Milk Money, a literary journal

Entry Deadline: Feb. 15, 2009 for the next issue
Milk Money, Volume Seven: Vile Pile

They say print is dead. But who are “they” to say such a thing? The editors of Milk Money Magazine in Cincinnati, Ohio think otherwise, and they can back it up with the very real existence of their mechanical duplicator. It’s not alive – it’s a machine – but the quarterly literary magazines it mass-produces are evidence of a very alive scene for printed works of fiction, prose, and poetry from national and international writers.

Milk Money is accepting submissions for its latest edition, Volume Seven: Vile Pile. They are looking for exceptional works of literary and experimental fiction and poetry. Works should be no more than 5,000 words whether it's fiction or poetry. Please only submit one short story per issue, but feel free to submit several works of poetry. We accept submissions year round, but the deadline for our next issue is February 15th.

If a work has been published outside of the United States or published in an online-only journal, Milk Money will consider it; please specify in the body of your e-mail if this is the case when you are submitting. All other previously published material will not be considered.

Milk Money only accepts work submitted via e-mail at> (replace (at) with @). Please attach your work in the form of .doc, .rtf or .txt files. Any submissions received otherwise cannot be considered for the magazine. Please do not paste the text in the body of your e-mail. A formal cover letter is not necessary. However, we do like to read a little bit about our contributors so please include a short bio in your e-mail.

Visit for previous issues and more information regarding submissions.


Submissions Now Open

The Redheaded Stepchild only accepts poems that have been rejected by other magazines. We publish biannually, and we accept submissions in the months of August and February only. We do not accept previously published work. We do, however, accept simultaneous submissions, but please inform us immediately if your work is accepted somewhere else. We are open to a wide variety of poetry and hold no allegiance to any particular style or school. If your poem is currently displayed online on your blog or website or wherever, please do not send it to us before taking it down, at least temporarily.

Submit 3-5 poems that have been rejected elsewhere with the names of the magazines that rejected the poems. We do not want multiple submissions, so please wait for a response to your first submission before you submit again. As is standard after publication, rights revert back to the author, but we request that you credit Redheaded Stepchild in subsequent republications.

We do not accept email attachments; therefore, in the body of your email, please include the following:

· a brief bio

· 3-5 poems

· the publication(s) that rejected the poems

Send your submission to redheadedstepchildmag (at) Change at to @.

Crab Creek Review Call for Submissions

Special Editor's Portfolio edited by Guest Editor, Susan Rich
Theme: Ekphrastic Poetry

We begin with the visual. Ekphrastic poetry is a response in words to a painting, photograph, dance, building, sculpture, Ikea catalogue, child’s drawing, or bumper sticker. An ekphrastic poem begins with inspiration from another piece of art and with the intuitive understanding that art begets art. In a sense, the art object becomes the rough draft of the poem.

We are looking for the best ekphrastic poems, 30-lines (or less) to showcase in an upcoming issue of Crab Creek Review.

For this project, we are accepting email submissions to the email address below. To submit to this special portfolio of ekphrastic poetry, write your name and title of the submission in the subject line and then send your previously unpublished poems in the body of an email to Editor, Susan Rich at:> (replace (at) with @)

Please send 3-5 poems at the most.
Also, include a short bio and contact info as well.

Deadline is May 31, 2010

We are a quarterly journal. We read submissions all year. Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please notify us immediately if your work has been accepted elsewhere.

Full submission guidelines and the email addresses for submitting work are available at our website:

Kartika Review serves the Asian-American community and those involved with Diasporic Asian-inspired literature. We scout for compelling Asian American creative writing and artwork to present to the public at large. Our editors actively solicit contributions from established virtuosos in our community in hopes their works here will inspire the next generation of virtuosos.

They should sound smooth when read aloud and demonstrate a good understanding of sonics. And they should have a profound theme or meaning which is arrived at through the combined effort of form and diction. Aside from that, we will consider any type of poem, so long as it does not go over 1 page in Microsoft Word in 12-pt Times New Roman with standard margins.
