  • Collateral Literary Journal—New Military Themed Magazine
  • Deadline info Submissions accepted year-round.
  • Genre Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Art, Photography, Cross-genre, Comics, Reviews, Interviews
  • Type Magazine

Collateral is a new online literary journal affiliated with the University of Washington, Tacoma. We showcase high quality creative writing and art that explores the impact of the military and military service on the lives of people beyond the active service person. These voices sometimes go unheard, and this journal captures the “collateral” impact of military service, whether it is from the perspective of the partner or child; parent or sibling; friend or co-worker; veteran, refugee, or protester. Our editorial vision is to be as inclusive as possible and ideologically diverse. We encourage submissions from professional and emerging writers. collateraljournal.com

  • Submit Now to TXTOBJX: emergent literature
  • Deadline info Deadline: Rolling
  • Genre Fiction, Nonfiction, Cross-genre
  • Type Literary Site

TXTOBJX is now open for submissions. TXTOBJX (txtobjx.com) is an experimental literary site that publishes text objects—fragmentary, abbreviated, emergent writing that falls somewhere between prose and poetry. A text object might take the shape of a microfable, a prose sketch, a list, or an aphorism. It can be piece of episodic surrealism or an artful misremembrance. It can be a set of cryptic instructions, or a description of a real or imagined phenomenon. Ideally, however, its controlled spontaneity distinguishes it from the highly resolute craft and polish of its cousin forms. Submissions: .
