Memoir (and)
Autobiography, Peotry, Essay, Graphics, Lies and More...
"Memoir (and) is a nonprofit literary journal born with these ideas in mind. Our mission is to publish traditional as well as non-traditional forms of nonfiction allied with memoir. This includes, but is not limited to, autobiography, diary, personal and critical essay, memoir, reportage, autobiographical fiction, alternative histories, journalistic accounts, 'flash memoir,' narrative poetry or 'poemoir' (it’s okay to groan, we did) and graphic memoir. No submission is too unusual—postmodern, modern or hypermodern—for us to consider. We look forward to the ways you will surprise, delight and perhaps shock us."

Stamp Out the Rate Hike: Stop the Post OfficeThe May 18, 2007 blog entry from Bill Moyers is a call to action to help small press publications. Large publishing firms (Time Warner at the forefront) have lobbied for substantial media mail postal rate increases with built-in discounts for those who send large amounts of mail. Small press publications would not receive these discounts.

In our work with NewPages, we are already hearing from literary magazines who fear they will need to cease publication if the rates go into effect because they simply cannot afford a 25-30% postal increase on their already tight budgets.

There is the link on Bill Moyers's blog to the Free Press, where you can read more about this issue and how to take action - a sample letter to send to those making this decision is included.

Yellow Medicine Review: A Journal of Indigenous Literature, Art, and Thought

"The title Yellow Medicine Review is significant in that it incorporates the name of a river in Southwest Minnesota. The Dakota dug the yellow root of the moonseed plant for medicinal purposes, for healing. Such is the spirit of Yellow Medicine Review.

"At this time, we encourage submissions from indigenous perspectives in the area of fiction, poetry, scholarly essays, and art. We define indigenous universally as representative of all pre-colonial peoples."
