Journal Orange Coast Review

What are we looking for? Poems, short stories, narrative non-fiction and art that causes a thunk in the pulse and a spark in the brain. We want works that combine intellect and emotion without pandering to either. Yeah, we don’t know what that means either. But we know that a work has to make us care about whatever is happening in that work. In short, we’re looking for something memorable.

Journal Orion headless

O.h. looks for some mysterious mix of surprising perspective, play and technical command. It’s entirely subjective, and like Orion in the summer sky, a moving proposition. Published intermittently, as headless journals tend to be.

Journal The Other Journal

The Other Journal welcomes the submission of critical essays, reviews, creative writing, and visual or performance art that encounter life through the lens of theology and culture; we seek pieces that consider the interaction of faith with contemporary life, art, politics, sexuality, technology, economics, and social justice. Although we primarily focus on perspectives within the Christian tradition, we invite dialogue with all who are interested in exploring the ongoing role of faith and spirituality in the world.
