Here’s more about the submission process:
You will receive a confirmation of receipt right away, and an editor will contact you within six weeks. We accept submissions year-round. We currently accept unsolicited submissions of non-fiction, poetry, humor, fiction and literary work in translation. Non-fiction pieces may include essays, first-person reporting and other forms of journalism and cultural analysis. For both non-fiction and fiction, we invite submissions of varying lengths — as few as 500 words and as many as 6,000. We also publish excerpts from forthcoming or recently published books. Poets, please limit your submissions to four poems or six pages total. We also encourage writers to contact us with pitches for interviews, dialogues, roundtable discussions, visual materials or ideas for blog content to post between issues.
