Journal 100 Word Story

The whole is a part and the part is a whole. The 100-word format forces the writer to question each word, to reckon with Flaubert’s mot juste in a way that even most flash fiction doesn’t. At the same time the brevity of the form allows the writer “to keep a story free from explanation,” as Walter Benjamin wrote. None of us will ever know the whole story in other words. We can only collect a bag full of shards that each seem perfect.

Journal 2River View

We prefer poems with these qualities: image, subtlety, and point of view; a surface of worldly exactitude, as well as a depth of semantic ambiguity; and a voice that negotiates with its body of predecessors. Before submitting, please read the submission guidelines.

Journal 32 Poems

At 32 Poems our bias is for inventive language complicated by music, form, and sentiment. As a rule we publish shorter work that can fit on a single page (32 lines or less), but we sometimes make exceptions to accommodate particularly exciting poems that run a little longer. Perhaps most importantly, our editors believe that a poem’s publication should not begin its disappearance, so we actively champion contributing poets by placing issues with other publications, nominating writers for recognition and prizes, and sharing their work outside the confines of the physical journal.

Journal 34thParallel Magazine

Milan Kundera wrote that fiction is like a parallel reality (okay so he didn’t say that exactly). But reality and fiction mix up, don’t you think? Our lives exist in words, it’s how we make our reality. But maybe the fiction is truer? What if in our writing we reach out beyond the parallels of reality and fiction? Question life, challenge the boundaries, confront our perceptions and misconceptions. Welcome to the 34thParallel.
