Editorial Focus: 

Burner is that girl. She's witty, pretty, and doesn't dumb
herself down. By day, she's a kindergarten teacher and by night, dances
gogo. Inspired by fellow revolutionaries from John Lennon to Virginia
Woolf, she's a muse and amusing, compelling and never complacent. The
Burner girl gets hot and bothered by the Marquis de Lafayette, aspires
to redefine the zeitgeist like Nietzsche, and provokes thought like
Margaret Atwood.

Editorial Focus: 

negative suck is for writers and artists who don’t suck.

Tips From the Editor: 

The editor of  negative suck, Jeffrey S. Callico, prefers submissions that make him feel as if he got punched in the face without warning or merit. Submissions NOT considered contain gratuitous sexual activity, gratuitous violence, gore (in fact, any amount of gore is gratuitous for this magazine), gratuitous profanity, political or religious references, meaningless absurdity or otherwise silly juxtapositions of thought that ramble and go nowhere but off the edges of proverbial cliffs. If you have something to say, then say it, but don't bore anyone with pretty words or extravagant phrases. Stuff like that -- yes, you guessed it -- SUCKS. Write about something no one writes about then write about it like no one could.

“Radius” is an online literary journal in blog format
dedicated to poetry: How poetry works, how one poem or body of poems
connects to another, how poetry exists in the world. We’re big believers that poetry doesn’t exist in a vacuum, and that it has a
role to play in life, politics and culture.


Tips From the Editor: 

We're open to submissions of poetry and literary criticism year-round, but please read the guidelines carefully, as we're looking for very specific things, including political poetry, elegies for poets and invented forms.

Super Arrow is a biannual online journal for experiments in writing and art. Our publication is designed for community and creative risk. The name of the journal is a partial english-to-english homophonic transliteration of "supererogatory," or, beyond what is required. We mean this, whatever that means to you.

Tips From the Editor: 

Read the issues archive (superarrow.org/Archive.html) to get a bead on our proclivities.
