There are presently no open calls for submissions.

We publish one issue annually in late spring. We open for submissions starting November 1, 2022 and close on February 28, 2023, allowing for a print production date in early May.

LEVITATE Magazine recognizes that not every writer is the same, and aims to produce and showcase diverse writing and put the spotlight on out-of-the-box ideas. We aspire to find work that displays different sides of life and shies away from what is considered “ordinary”. We intend to present different perspectives and various mediums of art that are creative and unique.

Please upload one prose piece, up to five pages of poems, or up to five artworks per submission. When submitting to Levitate, include a short bio in your cover letter. 

Do not submit multiple times to the same genre. However, simultaneous submissions are accepted across genres if only once, although it is not encouraged. If you submit 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.

We hope to include a themed dossier: Eldritch Issue 7

Contributors located in the United States will receive one free physical copy of the issue. International contributors will receive a PDF copy of the issue. 


Prose (Fiction/Nonfiction/Experimental)  can be no longer than approximately 5,000 words. We welcome flash fiction, which we define as anything less than 1,000 words.

Poetry submissions should be no longer than 15 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 November 1, 2022 at 12:00AM and close February 28, 2023 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!
