Journal Prose & Lore: Memoir Stories About Sex Work

Prose & Lore collects memoir stories about sex work in two issues per year. We strive to provide a space for people in the sex trades to share their stories. The journal is published by the Red Umbrella Project, a NYC-based nonprofit that amplifies the voices of people in the sex trades through media, storytelling, and advocacy programs. Many of the authors are previously unpublished and most have been supported in their pursuit of writing through our memoir writing workshops.

Journal A Public Space

A Public Space seeks writing that uncovers the extraordinary in the everyday, provides a rare glimpse, exposes an unexpected truth, starts a cross-cultural conversation, or puts forth a daring hypothesis. There are no boundaries or stipulations with the exception of requiring authenticity, curiosity, and an honest voice. We suggest that familiarity with the magazine – reading an issue or two – is the best way to gauge whether your work will be a good fit.

Journal The Puritan

The Puritan is an online, quarterly publication based in Toronto, Ontario committed to publishing the best in new fiction, poetry, interviews, and reviews. The Puritan seeks, above all, a pioneering literature. Work featured here may push toward the symbolic frontier, challenging limitations and forging into previously unexplored aesthetic territory. But it may also revisit and revitalize traditional forms. The Puritan embraces work wherever it lands on the conceptual spectrum, so long as it is original, intelligent, and engaging.
