Fiction

Sub Genres: All / surprise us

We publish short-short to long, no restrictions on style or content, though we prefer work that is 7500 words or fewer. We’re reading now.

Nonfiction

Submission fee: $ 2

We seek memoir, reported essays, braided essays, collages, vignettes, extremely literary journalism, oral history, meditations, combinations of the previous. Short, long, medium. Political in the largest sense. We are reading now.

Poetry

We publish all kinds. We’re not reading poetry now.

Review

Unlike many other literary magazines, ACM welcomes book reviews and review-essays about history and social issues. We’re most interested in books that provide new ways of looking at subjects. We also publish reviews and review-essays of works of literature. We encourage creativity in form. We occasionally publish reviews of other art forms. We now have separate review portals for poetry and for prose. Publishers and authors may also send queries through those portals.

Interview

We are open to queries about interviews with writers, activists, artists, and public intellectuals. As a rule, we require interviews to be conducted in person, by phone, by Zoom or the like.
