Day One: Amazon’s Official Literary Journal, the online superstore, creators of the Kindle, and publishers of many books, also publishes a literary journal called Day One.

Day One is a weekly publication that features a short story, a poem, interviews, and the occasional “bonus content.”

According to their product page, they offer competitive payment terms. Submission is via email.

According to the author, David Abrams:

“Our world is filled with noise: the electronic whistle of a new text message arriving on our phone, the clack and clatter of television news anchors, the insistent mewing of a cute kitten in the latest video to hit your social media stream. Day One cuts through that distracting static to say in a very clear, loud voice: ‘Here is one story and one poem worthy of your attention for 30 minutes.’ You are well advised to pause the cat video, find an oasis of quiet, and settle in with these new and emerging voices in fiction and poetry. What they have to say brings clarity to our cluttered lives.”

It has 81 reviews on Amazon, with a 4 star rating.
