Tipton Poetry Journal, located in the heart of the Midwest, publishes quality poetry from Indiana and around the world. TPJ is published quarterly, both online and in print. We feature quality free verse which evokes a shared sense of common humanity. We also publish prose poetry and other poetic forms.
The motto of the GNU literary journal is "All Genres are Created Equal." We accept traditional literary fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction; but we are also friendly to genre fiction, YA literature, short plays, comics, photography, and writing that defies classification. The GNU is an annual online literary journal run by the MFA students at National University. We never charge a submission fee. Please see our submission guidelines for details. gnujournal.com/home/.
New Stories from the Midwest will celebrate its tenth anniversary by presenting selected stories from previous volumes alongside new stories published in 2018 or 2019. Journals may submit six stories published 2018–2019 for free; writers may submit unlimited stories published 2018–2019 for $3 each. A $100 Heartland Fiction Prize will be awarded to a story of exceptional power. All contributors receive two copies and discount on more. Guest editor is Michael Martone. Deadline: February 1, 2020. www.newamericanpress.com/newmidwest.php
