Published by St. Mary's College of California's MFA in Creative Writing program, this online publication is looking for poetry, prose and new media arts for its next issue. The current online issue features all of those including some fabulous art by Jim Fuess (featured above) and an interview with the artist.
Unlike most literary magazine's, Mary actually pays $50 most of the time, by which I mean, in a strange twist to standard pay or don't-pay policies, the magazine does not pay those published in the NouVeau section, which is dedicated to helping emerging writers gain exposure.
The submission guidelines ask that all submissions be emailed to email@example.com as Word docs, or from artists as jpgs or gifs. There are a few more guidelines, so be sure to send check them out.
Note that this publication and Mary: A Literary Quarterly appear next to one another in google but are not the same. The latter publication is both a print and online magazine that also happens to be seeking publications, though this magazine is looking specifically for prose, poetry and essays relating to homosexuality . Submissions should be no longer than 5,000 words and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This online publication out of Fairfax, CA, says it gets 500-700 hits a month and has a mailing list of 3,300. Ginosko is currently looking for poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction, , which, according to the submission guidelines, can be either snail mailed or emailed to GinoskoEditor@aol.com. The publication also features music and art, like that by Justine Tatarsky (featured here).
The perk here is that work from each issue is selected for publication in an anthology.
If you're lucky enough to have something published through these opportunities, make sure to pass along the good news.
I'm a writing junkie looking for other writing junkies who are in this gig for the cool of it. People striving to be better writers because that's where their minds fly. I've accrued any number of writing credentials: author of "Growing Great Characters From the Ground Up: A Thorough Primer for the Writers of Fiction and Nonfiction"; writer of short stories published in Watchword, the Berkeley Fiction Review, Iconoclast and other literary journals; journalist of hundreds of articles for such publications as the Chicago Tribune and Inside Karate Magazine; playwright of a play produced in Hollywood. But what I'm looking to create now is a safe haven for writers where they can forget the brutality of the publishing world for awhile and help one another jump literature to a new level. If you're that person, or would like to be, welcome.
