Journal The Bacon Review

A monthly review of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and intellectual life, we started The Bacon Review because we care deeply about high-quality literature. We are also aware that the commercial publishing industry is facing difficult times, and consequently, it’s often the case that good writing is not published and authors not promoted. It’s our goal to make excellent work available for free. We also believe that writing should be about more than just publishing. We are interested in our authors as people; we want to know what inspires and motivates our contributors to write.

Journal The Bad Version

The Bad Version is an online magazine with an occasional print publication that seeks to foster conversation about the world we live in through the fiction, poetry, and essays of the young and curious. Its name comes from the collaborative art of screenwriting, where the first attempt at a scene, that wild idea that gets the process going, is called a “bad version.” Likewise, this magazine is dedicated to beginnings: to pieces that are taking risks, trying to broach new ideas, experimenting with new forms, starting new conversations.

Journal A Bad Penny Review

A Bad Penny Review publishes fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction--with a particular interest in forms that exist somewhere between: visual poetics, the conceptual, the varying forms and non-forms of the innovative/experimental/transgressive. It is published three times a year online and once a year as a physical object. Submissions are closed during June, July, December, and January.

Journal The Bangalore Review

As book-lovers from childhood, the editors grew up loving the written word, both contemporary as well as classic, and depended upon them for our intellectual nourishment. We owe the society we grew up in for the books we read and the knowledge we earned. Our purpose in launching The Bangalore Review is to give back, in our own way, to society what it lent us.
