3 Elements Literary Review

We are a themed literary journal, and all THREE elements (the specific words, Mercy, Town square, Frost —art & photography excluded) given for the submission period must be included in your story or poem for your work to be considered for publication. NO EXCEPTIONS WHATSOEVER.  Your story or poem doesn’t have to be about the three elements or even revolve around them; simply use your imagination to create whatever you want. You can use any form of the words/elements for the given submission period. For example, if the elements are: Flash, Whimsy, and Seizure; we would accept the usage of Flashed, Whimsical, and Seizures.



We accept general submissions of non-fiction, fiction, poetry, and visual art. We also are now seeking interviews, reviews and criticism for our “Notes” channel (See further guidelines on notes below). We are particular interested in non-fiction at the moment.

A Velvet Giant

Please submit in ONE category only.  Prose and poetry should be pasted in the body of the email. If your poems require special formatting, you may send an attachment.

Abandon Journal

We want to showcase writing and artwork that has been created with abandon. That term is free to be interpreted liberally, but ideally, it is the kind of work that takes risks, created in a space wherein the artist doesn’t care what anyone else thinks or what everyone else is doing. This means that we’re open to so-called “genre fiction,” from mystery to sci-fi to romance to fantasy to horror to whatever strikes your fancy. As long as the writing is powerful and abandons the preconceived notions of what is expected, we want to read it.
