Submission Guidelines

 

 we are currently open for submissions!

submission deadline has been extended!

new deadline: 30th september 2019

 

When submitting, we just ask that you keep a few things in mind:

WHAT TO SUBMIT

We are interested in the use of the “I” voice by emerging and established writers.

We love the intersections of things: where fiction meets essay, where essay meets poetry, where poetry meets visual art.

We love all forms of creative non-fiction: auto fiction, memoire, experimental essay and prose.

BUT above all we are looking for new and compelling writing, so if you have something that you feel passionately about that you think would fit our journal, by all means send it our way!

All work must be previously unpublished either in print or online.

Simultaneous submissions are welcome; we only ask that you let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere!

POETRY: we accept up to 5 poems at a time (max 150 lines)

PROSE (including flash fiction [up to 1,000 words]/micro fiction [up to 300 words]/ essay) we accept up to 3 pieces (max. 2,500 words)
