SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Issue # Theme: TBA.

We need a break!! We will not begin reading for issue #6 before October, 2017. You are welcome to submit material in the meantime but we can’t promise to respond before November. The theme for issue #6 has yet to be decided. If you subscribe, you’ll be notified of both theme and submission deadlines as soon as they become available.

We welcome writing in all forms and genres as well as artwork in all mediums. All poetry and fiction must be accompanied by notes bridging to the journal’s mission. Context and commentary are required for dreams, visions, and other communications.

We also welcome submissions for After•Words, in which writers offer responses to books, films, artwork, cultural events—not necessarily current ones—that they feel make an important contribution to our mission. Responses can be creative—the work may serve as a springboard for the writer’s own reflections— and they can be as brief or as long as they need to be, within our 5,000-word limit.

We also welcome submissions for our new column, Aftermath 11/9, which will feature dreams, visions, nightmares or communications with nonhuman beings that respond in some way to this era of escalating danger and darkness--and ideally provide clarity and/or guidance. Commentary is required.

  • Submissions in French and German welcome; we will provide translation.
  • 5,000 word limit
  • Send as MS Word doc or, for graphics, send a Jpg file (up to 250ppi)
  • Send your copy to:
    * Written materials should be sent as one document. *
