Any questions or comments on this change, please contact us at




We only consider original and previously unpublished work though there are some exceptions to work published on personal blogs (contact us). Simultaneous submissions are welcomed but please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. We do not and will not ever charge a submission fee to have your work considered for general submissions. 

We publish in May and November and accept submissions year round. Response times will typically vary from one month to three months. We carefully read and consider each piece but we do try to have fast turn-around times. We are well aware of how it feels to constantly check your email and bite your fingernails in the hopes that your work has found a home. 

We do not offer payment to our contributors at this time but hope to in the near future. 

Submit all work (except Spoken Word & IndiVISUALity, read more below) to The subject line should contain the category of your submission (i.e. poetry, flash fiction) and your name. Ex: Poetry Submission, Jane Doe

If you are submitting to multiple categories, send separate emails. 

Please send all work as an attachment. In the body of the email, include a brief biography (50-100 words). If your work is accepted, your bio will be published in our contributors page.

If your pieces are untitled, please title your art as "Untitled 1," "Untitled 2," "Untitled 3," etc. in order for the publisher to indicate which works have been selected in the acceptance letter to artist and in the Artist's Agreement. Please do not submit more than twenty pieces at a time.
