When you think of white do you think of Rembrandt
in darkness pockmarked a sieve or a monkfish
Ahead now ahead then: ash scrub pine shade
and Penny –– then twelve then my brother’s sole friend
Submitting to Conjunctions
The reading period for our spring 2021 print issue, Conjunctions:76, The Fortieth Anniversary Issue, is now closed.
The theme for our fall 2021 print issue will be announced in late spring. While we can’t predict exactly when an issue will close to new work, we typically read hard-copy submissions into August for our fall issues and into February for our spring issues. All submissions in the issue reading period are automatically considered for both print and online editions, unless your cover letter specifies otherwise.
Stay informed about upcoming issues themes and reading periods by joining our weekly newsletter and following us on Facebook and Twitter.
Submissions are open for our weekly online magazine, which we read for year-round and is not subject to thematic restrictions.
To submit to the weekly magazine, please mail your manuscript to our editorial office (address below) with a brief cover letter including your name, address, and email. In order to receive a response, you must include a self-addressed envelope stamped with sufficient postage for our reply and for return of your manuscript (if requested). Do not send submissions by any delivery method that requires a signature.
|Address mail submissions to:||Bradford Morrow, Editor|
|21 E 10th Street, #3E|

If we accept a submission, we will reach out as quickly as possible via email. If you have not received a response from us after twelve weeks, please assume that your submission has been declined.
WHAT WE PUBLISH
Conjunctions accepts submissions of short- and long-form fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and any hybrid thereof, including translations.
Although we have no official restrictions regarding word count, most of the manuscripts we select for publication are under eight thousand words long. For poetry submissions, we suggest sending half a dozen poems, depending on length. We do not publish academic essays or book reviews. All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished. We strongly prefer to receive exclusive rather than simultaneous submissions.
We strongly suggest that writers new to Conjunctions read our recent issues to acquaint themselves with our publications. Subscriptions are available here.
