Alright, we’re going to finish the month by aiming super high. It’s time for my semi-annual submission to Poetry. I’m going in positive and not calling it my semi-annual rejection! Wouldn’t an acceptance be awesome, though? They’ve been publishing since 1912 and having work in there is on my bucket list.
Hello! I hope all of you are finding time to send out a submission or two when you have a free minute. I’m sneaking mine in between meetings today because I have no idea when I’ll be free again. It feels like a Monday! Today I’m sending work to Yemassee. They’ve been publishing since 1993, and are free to submit work to.
Hello! I sort of cheated and sent out a double submission yesterday. This is a good thing, though, because it’s giving me a chance to post about a market that doesn’t fit with my own work. I know Inscription will be a great home for a some of your work, though, especially if your writing is a literary take on fantasy or science fiction.
Today has been hot and cold for sure! I received a kind rejection from Black Lawrence Press, but later on an acceptance from BOAAT for some poetry. I’m taking all the positive energy from today and putting it into a submission to Minerva Rising. This press is “committed to the power of women’s voices,” so if you identify as female, you’re free to submit work.
Quick note about 32 Poems! The only prose they publish is reviews, and I’m breaking my free submission streak, but we’ve still got loads of poetry from this collaborative chapbook left to publish. If you’re submitting poetry or interested in writing reviews for 32 Poems, read on.
I admit, I had no idea The MacGuffin existed until I poked around the Internet looking for open summer markets, but I was glad to have found it! They’ve been publishing since 1984, and I’m all for supporting a campus literary journal that accepts work from writers outside of the university that runs it. Plus, I love student student editors because they are busy and ambitious. If you’re interested in submitting as well, read on.
South Dakota Review has recently celebrated their 50th anniversary, and to celebrate (albeit late), we’re going to send them amazing work! They’re looking for poetry, prose, translations of both, and even scholarly essays. As far as I can see, their deadline is rolling, so take your time to get to know the journal first.
Hello! Phew, finally all caught up with these posts. I found out yesterday that I was being promoted at work, which is so hugely exciting. Have I mentioned this is the best year of my life so far? It so is. I love submitting when I’m feeling positive because it makes me feel better about sending out work. I just aimed high and sent out to Lumina, a fantastic journal that’s published authors like Jenny Boully and Nick Flynn.
I got a bit behind with posting! Sorry about that, all. If you’re following along, consider submitting to Hartskill Review. They published their first print issue in April 2014. Read on if you’re interested in submitting poetry.
If you’ve checked on this site and it’s been down, I think the issue is finally fixed! Hopefully after this server transfer there won’t be any more weird outages and you can all keep using this resource for what it’s for at your convenience. If you’re looking for more places to submit to over the summer, take a look at Grist: The Journal for Writers. I sent work there yesterday. Continue reading
