our window for our inaugural issue is currently closed, so we will not be reviewing any submissions that we receive. 

we do not wish to bottleneck the creativity of our artists and accept all forms of writing and visual art. although, we do want you to know that our staff and formatting abilities are limited, so please adhere to some of these basic guidelines:

  • writing submissions should be under 4,000 words

  • submission attachments must be in the form of a .docx, or .jpeg file

  • only submit one work per submission period (with exception to poetry and visual art)

  • multiple poetry submissions should each be on separate pages within the same document

  • please submit photography and other visual art that is saved at 300 dpi or greater

  • include a cover letter and short biography with your submission (you can also include a picture if you'd like). this isn't a requirement, but we do want to direct readers who love your work to places where they can purchase it or view more

we request first serial rights, after which all rights will revert back to the artist. we do not reprint work that has already been published, so please let us know if a piece that you have submitted elsewhere is going to be published. 

we are a self-funded online journal that will never charge a submission fee due to our commitment to accessibility, and we do not profit off of any publications that we release due to this. 

please send submissions to:

  • Instagram
