At AWP this year, Submittable offered to promote any literary publication that asked us nicely, including those that don’t use our software. Here are their opportunities:

Gold Wake, a Boston-based independent literary house, is reviewing  full-length books of any genre (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, you name it) from February 1st to March 31st, 2017. There is no separate submission fee: if you buy a Gold Wake book through their Submittable page, you’ll receive one free submission.

For their Submerging Writer Fellowship, FEAR NO LIT will pull one submerging writer out of the water and offer them a chapbook (limited-edition print run of 50 copies), a launch party at AWP 18 (reading featuring the winner & 3 finalists), $500 for AWP 18 expenses (travel, room), and $500 to spend however they like, no strings attached (maybe scuba gear?).

So Say We All is a San Diego literary and performing arts non-profit organization. They have a number of upcoming opportunities, including a Veterans Writers Project, a Literary Prize in Fiction, a monthly Visual / Audio Monologue Performance (VAMP), and more.

Under the Gum Tree is a reader supported, quarterly literary arts magazine that believes in sharing stories without shame. They are seeking visual art, short-from prose for five departments (with topical focuses like music, food, and film), and longer features.

Seeking to publish writing that is unapologetically bold, aiming to unleash the spider behind the rose and dance in the surreal: Ghost Parachute is a literary magazine accepting flash fiction stories that are 1000 words or less.

Causeway Lit! is the digital component of Dogwood: A Journal of Poetry and Prose, the literary magazine at Fairfield University. They are currently accepting poetry, fiction and nonfiction.

The Sun is a reader-supported ad-free magazine. They publish nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, as well as work from their ‘Readers Write’ series, where readers address subjects on which they’re the only authorities.

The Juniper Summer Writing Institute is an inclusive literary space that welcomes adult writers of poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction/memoir at all stages of their careers. The 2017 event will be held from June 18 – June 25 in Amherst, MA. Scholarship applications must be submitted by March 10, 2017.

Obra/Aritfact is a publication that exists in tandem with itself: Obra constitutes the online wing, with the best of each online issue and other material being co-opted for hardcopy Artifact postcards that include poetry, prose and visual media. The theme for their upcoming issue is Technology.’
