We publish one issue annually in late spring. We open for submissions starting Oct. 23 and close on the last day of February, allowing for a late April or early May print production date. 

We strive to have a collection of literature and art designed and written with purpose and demonstrating passion for the work. We are open to unconventional work, while still appreciating the traditional. We strive for a collection that is inclusive of diverse identities, perspectives, and crafts. We encourage new voices, but accept work from established artists and writers as well.

Please upload one prose piece, up to five pages of poems, or up to five artworks (as jpeg or png) per submission. Simultaneous submissions are allowed as are multiple submissions from the same writer in the same genre.  

Prose (Fiction/Nonfiction/Experimental) can be no longer that 5,000 words (anything less than 1,000 will be categorized as flash).

Poetry submissions should be no longer than 5 pages.

Please do not send novels, novellas, or complete collections. 

We will not consider previously published work. 

As we strive for a blind submissions process, please do not include your name or contact/identifying information on the submission itself.

Submissions open October 23, 2018 at 12:00AM and close February 28, 2019 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!

Our guidelines are as follows:

  • Submit up to 5,000 words in one document as a PDF or a Word document with a title.
  • All submissions are blind and should not include any identification.
  • Standard font (i.e. Arial, Times New Roman, etc.), double space all of your documents, and 12 point font size.
  • Titles should be centered.

We are looking for a clear voice and narrative that utilizes devices and themes to their best capabilities. There should be appropriate use of convention that has intention to further the story through scene, characterization, and reflection. We always appreciate strong images and details in our prose as well. These are the stories that the world must know.

We want strong messages and purpose in these pieces, paired with unique perspectives and developed themes. The piece should include appropriate balance of exposition, meditation, and scenes throughout as it pertains to the purpose. There should be limited abstractions and irrelevant tangents. We accept all types of non fiction as long as they meet the conventions listed above-- Including experimental!

We look forward to reading your work!

Our guidelines are as follows:

  • Submit up to 5 pages in one as a PDF or a Word document with a title. All poems should begin on a new page.
  • All submissions are blind and should not include any identification.
  • Standard font (i.e. Arial, Times New Roman, etc.), single space all of your documents, and 12 point font size. 
  • Titles should be left aligned.

We encourage poems strung together through vivid images that engage the audience and elicit a strong emotional response. Whether it’s narrative or not, the images should flow and the reader should feel invested in the piece. The piece should be purposeful. For poetry especially, we encourage all forms, both expirimental and traditional. We believe that there is beauty in both new and experimental forms, be it the traditional sonnet or free verse.
