SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

 

Send us your stuff! (and yes, we pay). We’re looking for previously unpublished, literary works of poetry and creative nonfiction.

Please submit your work in the following formats (to keep us sane and organized, we cannot accept pieces that are submitted otherwise):

 

Poetry:

We’ll take up to three poems at a time (keep it to one poem per page please). Attach as .pdf so your line/stanza breaks are uninterrupted and exactly as you want them to be.

 

Creative Nonfiction:

We don’t ask for much, but we do ask that you double-space your work and attach it as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf! We want your best essays, memoir, and/or other works of literary nonfiction. We’ll look at anything you send us, but we’d prefer stuff that’s 3500 words or less. 

 

Book Reviews: 

Send us an email pitch on a book you'd like to review or to inquire about any books we need to be reviewed. Please include a recent sample of your work. 

 

Please name your submission format like so: 

 

yourfullname_genre_monthofsubmission.fileformat

 

 

We’re okay with simultaneous submissions (you gotta do what you gotta do), but let us know ASAP if something you’ve sent to us has been accepted for publication elsewhere.

 

We reserve the right to fact check and edit submissions (when applicable). And if you’re wondering, yes, we do accept pitches! Send us your ideas to saltern.magazine@gmail.com We’re always looking for new voices.
