Guidelines

 ​​

  • Submissions are now closed. Follow us on twitter for updates on our next submissions call. 

  • We’d love to see work from people typically under-represented in literary journals.

  • Previously unpublished work only.

  • We accept fiction and creative non-fiction (up to 4000 words); flash fiction (up to 1000 words); poetry (up to 3 pages); visual art (1 piece). Please send as one .doc or .docx attachment using the form provided.

  • Send us your work in translation in any category, with permission from the relevant publisher. Please include the original language text alongside.

  • Work should be in a readable font; single spaced for poetry and double spaced for fiction. Start each poem on a new page using line breaks.

  • We can only accept one submission per person, so please send us what you think is your best work.

  • Strong language or content is fine by us, but we have no time for writing that we view as exploitative, abusive, or discriminatory. Please include content warnings where relevant. 

  • Please don't include your name on the document as all submissions will be read blind. 

  • We’re all writers and we all submit simultaneously, so please feel free to do the same. Just let us know if your piece is accepted elsewhere.

  • We believe writers and artists should get paid for the work they produce and we are delighted to offer payment of €200 for a short story or CNF piece, €100 for a poem or piece of flash, and €100 for visual art, as well as a copy of the magazine for each contributor. 

  • Upon publication all rights revert to the author. Some work published in the magazine may appear on the website at a later date. 

  • You should receive a response within six weeks of the end of the submission window and we strive - where possible - to offer constructive feedback and encouragement.
