Monday Markets – Outlook Springs (via @outlooksprings)

Outlook Springs is a literary magazine open to fiction, non-fiction and poetry limned with genre:

 Our emphasis is literary fiction: “the human heart in conflict with itself,” as Faulkner famously said. But we aren’t biased against genre. To the contrary! Experimental, science fiction, fantasy, slipstream, magical realism, minimalist, maximalist, flash, etc., etc., are all welcome into our home, so long as there is an emphasis on character and language rather than on cleverness and conceit. Let us reiterate: character and language are important. We want sentences radioactive with the bizarre, the beautiful, the ugly—the world as only you see it. Surprise us. Break our hearts. Humor is always a plus. Humor and heartbreak together? Oh, boy. That’s a dream come true. Outlook Springs isn’t looking for merely competent stories—stories that are technically proficient but emotionally cold. Zap us with life..

They’re after short fiction and non-fiction up to 7,500 words, and accept up to 5 poems. Payment is a token $25 USD for fiction and $10 USD for poetry.
