Journal S/tick

S/tick is a lively new mag that appeared on the scene in April 2012. We aim to publish bright and touching work from both new and established authors. While work with a feminist consciousness that challenges the status quo and says things that are difficult to say may be hard to find a home for, it's exactly what we're looking for. S/tick provides a place for women and feminists to share their grief, anger, and joy.

Journal The Sacred Cow

The Sacred Cow is a literary magazine in digital format. The name might suggest that our mission is to annoy people, poking holes in their cherished beliefs. We do enjoy that, but our main goal is to provide good reading in the form of short stories, commentary on current events, essays, poetry, etc. Since good writing explores truth, we reserve the right to ignore and even tip over sacred cows, wherever they may be found.

Journal Sakura Review

We at Sakura Review consider the page as a site of singularity and belonging, that threshold for history-weaving. We prize deft and thoughtful craft, writing that communicates with a sure sense of its own form. We seek pieces with charisma that endear and entertain us — voices that call on us to stay and listen. We’re committed to publishing writing from diverse voices and experiences, including work in translation. Writing that is brave, however quietly or radically.
