Journal Dappled Things

Dappled Things is a Catholic literary magazine, and this raises the question of what Catholic literature is in the first place. Rather than give you a pat answer, we invite you as a contributor to help us explore that question. We especially value work that creatively engages Christianity’s rich tradition in art, thought, and practice, that is unflinchingly honest, that innovates in the light of tradition, and, in the words of J.F. Powers, has “one foot in this world and one in the next.”

EOAGH: A Journal of the Arts is concerned with reading as a process, the productive chaos of investigative poetic work. These acts of attention explore the close listening inherent not just in writing but also in being written. Inspired by Whitman's assertion that "Reading is a gymnast's act," we see readings as embodied, interdisciplinary responses that engage with one's environment through ekphrasis, phenomenology, queering, conceptual multiplicity, density and difficulty.

Our Mission Fiction Southeast is an online literary journal dedicated to short fiction. The mission of Fiction Southeast is to showcase fiction from today’s most promising writers, and to create an online literary journal that allows readers to quickly and easily access quality writing from their laptops, iPads, and cell phones. Since electronic reading devices (and to some extent laptops for that matter) make reading long pieces of writing less enjoyable, we have chosen to dedicate the journal to flash fiction.

Journal Fiddleblack

We operate under a well-defined mission statement to serve the interests of our audience. Simply, we appreciate certain aesthetics. Our body of work is built from transgressive stories with a strong sense of self and place. We believe in mature cultural investigation. We sometimes look to the genre of horror for reference, through the lenses of metamodernism and neurosis. Our reading time is long and our selection process is fine, but we believe Fiddleblack is a kind of world's end community, and our published contributors are encouraged to reappear.
