3 Very Unusual Literary Journals

Most literary journals are pretty predictable. There is a front cover and a back cover if it is a print journal. Online the format is more varied, but usually with similar results. There might be some art work or some audio that makes the presentation have a little more depth. But mostly they are variations on a theme. The following journals are not like that.


Broadsided publishes only poetry. Instead of publishing the poems in a traditional book form, they turn each poem into its own poster (otherwise known as a broadside). The idea is that the editor and volunteers actually put these poems up in public on telephone poles, etc. . .

Hoot is a miniature literary journal that publishes fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. By miniature I mean that it is a postcard. A beautiful postcard, usually with the piece of writing integrated into artwork. In fact all work has to be less than 150 words in length.

The Poetry Storehouse

The Poetry Storehouse is a mixed media project that presents poems in video format. They combine work by visual artists with poetry.

It is a wonderful project and you can learn more about it at their website: http://poetrystorehouse.com/submissions/
