Journal Saw Palm: Florida Literature and Art

Saw Palm is a Florida-themed literary journal produced by the MFA program at the University of South Florida. We publish poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, art, photography, reviews, and interviews. Places to Stand in Florida, a special project of our website, features a Google Earth map of the state with pushpin essays that capture the variety of Florida environments, natural and man-made. We actively seek new writers and artists and make it a point to respond personally (if briefly) to every submission. Please subscribe if you appreciate great Florida literature and art!

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!

Journal scissors & spackle

We believe that words in their purest form, both cut and repair, sometimes simultaneously. We are not interested in resumes or pedigrees. We care about words, and the worlds that can be constructed with them.

Journal scissors and spackle

Words in their purest form both cut and repair, sometimes simultaneously. We believe that words have not been given the credit they are due often enough. Scissors and spackle wants to slip back into the power of words and is searching for artists who string them together in ways that make us remember. We are not concerned with what box or title an artist's work fits into, or how many words it takes them to get there. We are only interested in the destination. We are interested in fiction without boundaries.
