Journal Arcadia

An independent literary endeavor that's published eclectic art and literature from our home in Oklahoma since 2009, we seek out and put in print the best, regardless of its origin. The work might come from a hardscrabble poet hiding out down some county road in Oklahoma or an award-winning essayist with a mile-long list of degrees and accolades. Our mission is to showcase work from our home state and beyond, work that speaks to and moves the heart and the head, regardless of form, medium, or place of birth.

Journal Armchair/Shotgun

At Armchair/Shotgun, we do not care about your bio. We read all submissions anonymously, and conceal even an author’s name until a piece has been selected for publication. We feel that good writing does not know one MFA program from another. It does not know a Ph.D. from a high school drop-out. Good writing knows only story. We accept poetry, fiction, non-fiction and visual arts submissions for publication on real honest-to-goodness paper.
