Discover New Art is a growing, dynamic group of literary platforms that seeks to support and celebrate contemporary writers. We thoughtfully and carefully consider innovative ways to better serve literary artists. We are passionate about sharing our knowledge, and we are committed to helping others succeed. All of our editors are also writers, so we understand all facets of the publishing process, and we know how challenging it can be to persevere as artists. We treat every submitter, and every contributor, with the honesty and respect we’d expect ourselves.
Founded in 2011, we continue to curate positive and uplifting experiences for today’s writers. Our submission cycles are designed to provide an abundance of opportunities for those writers seeking publication and recognition for their work.
Every Discover New Art platform offers always-open, always-free submissions alongside exciting cyclical contests adjudicated by some of the most lauded experts in the industry. We treasure our partnerships with authors, agents, and instructors, because they allow us to offer the most compelling literature to our readers. Overall, we thrive on creative collaboration, internally and externally, and we are truly honored by the steadfast support and eager readership of our literary community.
A Platform for Emerging Writers
The Masters Review is a journal dedicated to publishing fiction and narrative nonfiction by emerging writers. TMR provides resources to emerging writers with workshops, agency review, and essays on craft by established writers. Our New Voices category is always free and always open, and we pay every single one of our writers. One of our most significant projects: The Masters Review publishes a print anthology featuring 10 new short stories and essays selected by a prestigious guest judge each year.
Exploring the Art of Prose
Established in 2017 as a literary magazine for fiction, CRAFT expanded in 2020 to publish creative nonfiction as well. We explore how writing works, reading pieces with a focus on the elements of craft, on the art of prose. We feature previously unpublished creative work, with occasional reprints, as well as critical pieces including craft essays and interviews. All published creative pieces include an author’s note and an editorial introduction that both discuss stylistics in the work.
We do not charge fees for our fiction or creative nonfiction submissions, or for our craft categories, and we are a paying market. Our general submissions are open year-round with no capacity limits. We value accessibility—keeping CRAFT free to read and free to submit to is our priority. We work with all writers, established as well as emerging. All creative work published in CRAFT comes through submission; we do not solicit fiction or creative nonfiction.
Welcome Home, Poet
Palette Poetry is a poetry journal focused on crafting a beautiful space for poetry online. We’ve published big names and new poets, side-by-side, with an emphasis on producing an elegant experience of digital publication for every contributor. Our lyric essay columns provide space for well-known poets to feel and write their way through prose. Our Featured Poetry category remains open year-round, free to submit—and from which we publish new poems every Monday.
Exploring the Edges of Contemporary Poetry
Frontier Poetry is a digital journal dedicated to uplifting, supporting, and inspiring emerging poets. Through our resource-rich columns and interviews, our significant prizes and publication reach, we have established ourselves as a vital and vibrant stop for our rising poetry community. We publish work by new voices every Friday, and we hold that diversity in our contributors and editorial team is of utmost importance.
Welcome to the Future of Flash
Fractured Lit works with all writers, established as well as emerging. We want to find flash with emotional resonance and characters we care about, who come to life through their actions and responses to the world around them. We’re searching for flash that investigates the mysteries of being human, the sorrow and the joy of connecting to the diverse population around us. Flash fiction is published on Mondays. Throughout the week, we publish other content that explores the roots and the future of the flash form and genre, including essays, interviews and more.
A Premier Publisher of Sci-Fi & /Fantasy, Thriller/Mystery, Historical Fiction, and Young Adult
Uncharted began with the goal of publishing thrilling genre short stories; stories you can’t stop reading, stories you want to share with your friends, with the world. Stories that beguile readers, that investigate the shadows, that recalibrate how we see the world now and in the future. Stories that break our hearts or rebuild us with the jetsam of new technology. Stories that intrigue and entertain, that spike our heart rates, and leave us with the pang of nostalgia as tradition and experimentation compete for our headspace. We’ve come to expect the same from our newest submission categories too: historical short fiction and young poetry and prose.
Storytellers, readers, fans of genre writing—we welcome you home.
