Thank you for considering our magazine for your work! Submissions Are Currently Closed!

We accept writing and art of any kind! We want writing and art that challenges forms and bounds. Writing that makes us think, cry, smile, and laugh. Writing that makes us reconsider how we think or feel about something. If you aren't able to categorize your writing or artwork into one that we've provided, still go ahead and submit it; writing submissions may be fiction or nonfiction within any form. These are some general guidelines for submissions that we'd like you to follow. 

For All Submissions:

In order to have a cohesive issue, we'd like all submissions to center around the same theme (the theme will change with each issue). For Issue V, our theme is Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. Just as Kintsugi embraces and highlights imperfections, we’re looking for art and writing that illustrates the value and role of adversity, failure, and individual shortcomings in shaping people and their stories. We want work that highlights the “wear and tear” of life.

For your submission document, do not include any identifying information including your name, address, phone number, email address, etc. Additionally, please make the name of your document "Title of your piece/submission" instead of "Intangible Poetry Submission" or "Lauren Fountain Submission." It's much easier to organize for us if you do this.

Submission Process:

If you have any questions about the submission process or general inquiries, send an email to with "Inquiry" somewhere in the subject line.

Additionally, we will attempt to respond in a timely fashion with an editorial response; we won't simply say "accepted" or "rejected." We want to tell you what we liked about your work: how it made us feel and what it made us think about.

A message about rights: if we accept your piece for publication, we ask for first or reprint (if your work has been previously published), electronic, and archival rights, as we would like to keep your work on our website after we release our issue initially. If you would like, you may submit your work that is published in our magazine to a different publication, but, in the event that it's published, please reference us as the first publication of your piece.

We are so excited to review your work!
