Journal San Pedro River Review

We prefer poetry and art set in tactile imagery, with a vividness of local detail: characters, places, substantive objects. We shy away from the overtly political or environmental. We like a degree of pathos, subtle drama, a touch of Lorca's 'duende' that loves "ledges and wounds," and a good use of metaphors and similes. We consider all forms of poetry, including prose poems.

Journal Saranac Review

The Saranac Review is committed to dissolving boundaries of all kinds, seeking to publish a diverse array of emerging and established writers from Canada and the United States. The journal strives to be a textual clearing in which a space is opened for literary cross-pollination. We aim to publish diverse voices, a literal "cluster of stars," an illumination of the Iroquois roots of our namesake, the word, Saranac.

Journal Saxifrage Press

Poetry: we like narratives (simple or complex), grounded in imagery, that don’t shy away from the lyric impulse. A keen ear, well defined speakers, an attention to place—formal, free verse, experimental, try us out. Fiction: we want scene vs. exposition. We want showing rather than telling. We want beautiful language and syntactical mastery. Don’t be afraid to send us work that doesn’t seem to fit anywhere else—the absurd, the macabre—but please, no genre. Art: everything from sculpture to oil on canvas, surprise us!
