Talking Writing is an online monthly literary magazine that supports writers and those interested in literature by encouraging creative discussion of the writing process.

Journal TAYO Literary Magazine

TAYO cultivates emerging poetry and prose, publishing writing that knifes, lifts, and strikes at the emotive truth of all things lost and adrift. We're dedicated to the creation, cultivation, and promotion of Filipino/Filipino American arts and culture, open to all work that cuts the insides and opens the heart. We accept work without regard to ethnicity or nationality* (all are welcomed to submit), and we're looking for pieces that slice into the phantasmagoria of the oppressed, marginalized, post-colonized, and diasporic life.
