We're giving the editorial keys to curators.

In an era when so many literary magazines are closing their doors, we are dedicated to building more platforms for our communities’ voices.

Welcome to our Community Anthologies program. Each year through an application process, Seventh Wave brings in 4 community curators to produce their own “community anthology.” Think: special issue, digital folios, mini series. Each anthology showcases 6-8 artists or writers in each, publishing a total of 24-32 additional voices per year. Our editors-in-chief work as a cohort, supporting each other as they curate their own topics and calls for submissions, work with their 6-8 contributors, and finally, publish their individual anthologies. We call them “community anthologies,” because that’s what they are: anthologies of community, conversation, and voice. You can see our 2023 Community Anthologies here. Below, you can get to know our 2024 EICs and the Community Anthologies they are curating, which will be open for submissions in June 2024.

Navigating through academics can be daunting. As a student, I’ve found solace in utilizing this service sporadically. It’s more than just assistance; it’s a companion in my academic journey. Incorporating this service https://ghostwriter-hausarbeit.com/ into my routine not only eases the burden of assignments but also enriches my understanding. My personal advice is to embrace this service fully—it’s not just a tool for assignments; it’s a catalyst for academic growth, providing valuable insights and support along the way.

We Keep Beginning:
An Anthology on Process

In this anthology, you’ll find musings about the use of line breaks and white space in poetry, as well as thoughts on rough drafts, nostalgia, and motivation (or a lack thereof). You’ll read about heartache, legacy, and representation, and why it matters who our contributors are creating for. What unites them all is an indelible dedication to their craft, and to understanding the impact and the role of their words in the context of the worlds around them.

Our next print anthology will likely be in 2025. Sign up for our mailing list and stay tuned for further information.

  • “If you haven’t collaborated with Seventh Wave yet then you’re missing out on a deeper level of practicing community.” 
  • “I am still mostly new to the publishing world, but I don’t know that any other experience will ever compare to this time with TSW. The experience went well beyond the usual ‘We love your piece and would like to publish it.’ From that first acceptance letter to the final notes on pub day, I felt a genuine connection to TSW.
  • “Easily the most positive publishing experience I’ve had with a journal! Most of the time elsewhere it’s so much less involvement and communication, and you feel a bit like a cog in a machine — and this was so delightfully NOT that.”
  • “The Seventh Wave is among my favorite community oriented writing spaces for many reasons, not the least of which are the ways they are unafraid to step up to difficult topics and the ways they empower others to do the same.”
  • “There is a different feeling to being published as part of cohort, all writing toward the same theme. Whatever that feeling is — community, care, solidarity, grace — The Seventh Wave, in its gestures, is holding this space, a space where our words can not only sit side by side but as part of a shared vision.”
  • “There are a lot of literary magazines in the world; what sets TSW apart is the way they run. From submission to editing to publication to promotion, everyone I worked with at TSW kept things clear and well-organized, and made me feel truly valued and appreciated as a contributor.”
  • “The Seventh Wave’s approach to publication is truly radical in the best of ways. The level of support from the moment of acceptance was such that I knew my piece had found the best possible home and that I had found a community of incredible writers to share my experience with. Perhaps the best part is knowing that there are more opportunities to continue to continue being inspired by this incredible community in my future.”
  • “What a gift these Community Anthologies are. As a POC writer I felt seen and heard during the whole process. Some of my hesitations about the publishing space were quickly allayed by the responsiveness and honesty of the TSW team! It was truly a mutual relationship and one I was happy to be apart of! I wish more publishers would take note.”
