Submissions

Submitting to Conjunctions
All submissions from writers in the US should be directed by mail to the editorial office:
Bradford Morrow, Editor
Conjunctions 
21 East 10th St., #3E
New York, NY 10003

In order to receive a response, you must enclose a self-addressed envelope stamped with sufficient postage for our reply and for return of your ms (if you request that). If you could also include your email address in your cover letter, that would be most appreciated.

Please do not send submissions via USPS Priority Mail or any other delivery method that requires a signature, and please be sure that your SASE is an appropriate size for return of your materials. 

Electronic and simultaneous submissions will not be considered. Allow twelve weeks for our reply before querying.

Writers located outside the US (including temporary expats), may submit via email with a clear indication of the country from which they are sending.

Our biannual print/e-book collections are generally themed. Find out more about the theme and reading period for the issue in progress.  We cannot predict when a given issue will close to new work, but we typically read into August for our fall issues and into February for our spring issues.

We read year-round for the weekly online magazine, which is not subject to thematic restrictions.

We accept short- and long-form fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction. We do not accept academic essays or publish book reviews. Because we strive to provide a forum for unconventional work, we have no official restrictions regarding word count or the number of individual literary works contained in a single submission. However, we ask that writers use common sense when it comes to sending extremely long work or multiple works.

Please do not send synopses or writing samples and ask us to indicate interest; just send the work itself.

Time after time, I saw overlapping images everywhere. Even when I looked at my children, I didn’t see two of them, but six of them. Only when I looked at my wife, I saw just one image. As for the neighbors, they became a large flock of countless things.

He ties a bell to her ankle, but she removes it in her sleep. He ties one of her wrists to the bed frame with twine, but she loosens the knot with the other hand and slips out. That night she wakes upside down, slung over his shoulder.
