We publish one issue annually in late spring. We will open for submissions starting Oct. 8, 2019 and close on February 15, 2020, allowing for a print production date in early May.
We strive to assemble a collection of literature and art designed and written with purpose and demonstrating a passion for the work. We are open to unconventional work, while still appreciating the traditional. We are committed to publishing literature and art that is inclusive of diverse identities, perspectives, and crafts. We encourage new voices, but accept work from established artists and writers as well.
For issue #4, we are adding a themed dossier on “Connections.” Explore this idea in any way you choose: connections between individual people who have close relationships with each other, or between groups of people across national boundaries; connections between humans and the natural world; connections between ideas, historical periods, different arts; connections we haven’t thought of. Be sure to submit within the appropriate section and identify the genre of the submission in the title. Also please follow the guidelines for that genre.
Please upload one prose piece, up to five pages of poems, or up to five artworks per submission. Simultaneous submissions are allowed. If your submission is not accepted, you may then send a second submission for our review, but otherwise please do not send multiple submissions within one genre. If you submit work in more than one genre, please include that information in your cover letter. The title of your submission should be the title(s) of your piece(s). Submissions that fail to follow the guidelines will not receive the same careful attention that is given to correctly submitted work.
Contributors will receive one free copy of the issue at the release party or by mail.
Prose (Fiction/Nonfiction/Experimental) can be no longer that 5,000 words. We welcome flash fiction, which we define as anything less than 1,000 words.
Poetry submissions should be no longer than 5 pages.
Visual Arts submissions are open to all mediums (including sculpture), but no more than 5 pieces. Please submit images as jpeg or tif, 300dpi).
Please do not send novels, novellas, or complete collections.
We will not consider previously published work.
Submissions open October 8, 2019 at 12:00AM and close February 15, 2020 at 11:59PM.
If your work is selected, we ask for First North American Serial PRINT and ELECTRONIC Rights for publication.
We look forward to reading your work!
