a to z presses: v – z

OLJ Submit-O-Rama: A to Z Presses (V - Z)
Guys ... this is the last Friday of the Submit-O-Rama! How exciting (and horrifying, maybe, but mostly exciting) is that?! That makes this the last listing of literary journals and presses seeking your work. For folks doing any of the challenges, as of today we will have covered one journal per letter of the alphabet! That means, if you submit to all of the journals covered in the A to Z series, you’ll have submitted at least 26 times! This week’s A to Z Presses series post covers “V” through “Z.”

(Note: Be sure to carefully read each journal’s submission guidelines and process instructions before sending in your submission packets! As an added note, there are much fewer journals with titles starting in this alphabet range, so some or many of these are repeats from past A to Z Presses posts, and they may have more limited pools of writers. That's not an attempt to limit your options ... it's just the water we're swimming in. Have fun!)


About: Verdad is “an online, twice-yearly literary and fine arts journal that showcases the best unpublished poetry, short stories, non-fiction and visual art that comes our way. We also offer a wide range of interviews featuring contemporary writers and artists.” (Note: Submissions for Volume 15 closed in September, but current submissions are being read for the next issue.)


About: Weave Magazine is a "bicoastal literary organization and print publication" seeking to “create a space for a cross-section of writers and artists to meet on the page, on the stage, and in workshop. We celebrate diversity in both the creator and their works and strive to showcase both novice and established writers and artists.”


About: Xenith “lives at the crossroads of literature and digital culture.” They accept “most forms and genres of writing: poetry, fiction, flash fiction, plays, creative nonfiction, graphic novels, comics and comic scripts, unsent letters, experimental, sci-fi, literary mainstream, whatever. The type of writing doesn’t matter, but the quality of writing does. Quality writing is writing that startles. Surprise us.”


About: Yemassee is a bi-annual literary journal seeking “quality submissions of fiction, poetry, drama, and creative nonfiction. We love good writing, and we’re always hoping to find fresh, new voices to publish alongside established authors.”


About: ZYZZYVA presents “a vibrant mix of established talents and new voices, providing an elegantly curated overview of contemporary arts and letters with a distinctly San Francisco perspective.” The journal publishes the best in established and emerging writer voices from the West Coast (California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii).
