Seasonal Editions  —   SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

We are currently open for submissions until July 31st, 2024.

 

Please ensure your submission follows the below guidelines for consideration. Before submitting, we encourage you to view past issues to get a feel for what we like. See more.

Do not submit misogynistic, erotic, excessively theological or aimless work. Expect an immediate rejection under these premises. Please refrain from including personal information in your submission document(s). 

PoetrySubmit three to five unpublished poems with a maximum of 10 pages in a PDF or Word file. We want polished poems that are well-thought on the grounds of form, topic, tone, and theme. We want vibrant, unheard patterns.  We value specificity. We enjoy poems that match the magazine's aesthetic. No clichés. Poems that are too busy, lack editing, or specificity will likely receive rejection.

Prose: Submit up to three unpublished pieces of prose with a maximum of 3,000 words each in a PDF or Word file. We want immediacy. Don't make us wait. Get to the point, have a plot to follow, and give us something new. Prose that lacks editing, has no plot, or is monotonous will likely receive rejection.

Creative Non-Fiction: Submit up to two pieces of CNF with a maximum of 3,000 words each in a PDF or Word file. Like Prose, give it to us from the get-go. No research papers. 

Art: We accept visual art including paintings, drawings, digital artwork, mixed media, sculptures and ceramics. Submit up to five pieces of artwork as high resolution JPG images. Each piece may optionally be accompanied with an artist's statement of no more than 500 words. Artwork can be published elsewhere.
