The Parliament Literary Journal

Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Welcome to The Parliament, ​a literary gathering building its nest in Highland Park, New Jersey.  In its mission, The Parliament aims, quite simply, to be a place for those who share a love in writing of all genres, art, and photography to gather, discuss, and inspire one another. We want to see the diversity of talents that surround us and to build connections amongst these talents.  While certain contests and submission periods may revolve around a certain theme and we consider ourselves a literary fiction site primarily, we don't intend to limit your work to a particular genre.  We'd love to see your prose, flash and micro fiction, poetry, essay, creative non-fiction, photography, ekphrastics, and more.  Surprise us.  Be creative. Bend and blend genres.  We will accept work with profanity and/or sex so long as it is utilized in an appropriate and artful way. We will NOT accept works that are heavily pornographic or works that promote racism, homophobia, or intolerance of any kind.
