call for submissions: Stymie Magazine
Stymie Magazine, a journal of sport & literature, is seeking submissions for their upcoming 2010 issues (Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter). Past contributors and those already slated to appear in the near future include: Matt Ferrence, Daniel Orozco, Brian Oliu, Lee Gruenfeld, Ben Loory, Dawn Corrigan and many others. In terms of what we’re about, our magazine is focused on sport in literature, be it through fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction or essay. We love the sport themed work (i.e. baseball) published at places like Hobart and The Southern Review, and other places like Golf World (in their annual fiction issue). We're partial to the essays of David Foster Wallace. We'd be ecstatic to get an essay on 1986's Double Dribble for the NES. We are currently reading submissions, our complete guidelines can be found here.

Twitter-based literary review seeks submissions: escarp
escarp, a selective, Twitter-based review of brief poetry and prose, is seeking submissions of brief (sub 140 character) fiction, non-fiction and poetry. While most of our submissions to date are best described as poetry or fiction, we also like to encourage the submission of brief non-fiction. Public interest in brief non-fiction is best demonstrated by the popularity of “genre” non-fiction sites, if you will—FML [fmylife.com], MLIA [mylifeisaverage.com], TFLN [textsfromlastnight.com], Overheard It [overheard.it], etc.—for which we’ve seen little “literary” competition. You can find us on the web at escarp.org. To submit you’ll need to: 1.) make/have a Twitter account, 2.) follow @escarp: twitter.com/escarp 3.) wait for us to follow you back (we process follows several times a day) 4.) submit, via direct message; specific requirements: escarp.org/submit.php. Writers can expect personal submission responses within 24 hours. Some balk at creating a Twitter account just to submit to a journal, but we’ll note—given the proliferation of online submission management systems requiring registration—that signing up for Twitter is easier, less invasive, and can actually serve more than one purpose.
