Submissions

Submitting to Conjunctions
Conjunctions accepts submissions of short- and long-form fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, and any hybrid thereof, including translations.

The reading period for our Fall 2020 issue, Conjunctions:75, Dispatches from Solitude, is now closed. While we can’t predict exactly when an issue will close to new work, 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. All submissions are automatically considered for both print and online editions, unless your cover letter specifies otherwise.

Although we have no official restrictions regarding word count, most of the manuscripts we select for publication are under eight thousand words long. We do not publish academic essays or book reviews. All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished.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 and make every effort to respond to work in four to six weeks. (Work sent though Submittable may have a longer read time given the volume of submissions on that platform.)

Submit your manuscript by mail to the editorial office. Electronic submissions through Submittable are currently closed.

In order to receive a response to hard copy submissions, you must include a self-addressed envelope stamped with sufficient postage for our reply and for return of your MS (if you request that). Do not send submissions by any delivery method that requires a signature.

We strongly suggest that writers new to Conjunctions read our recent issues to acquaint themselves with our publications. Subscriptions are available here.

Stay informed about upcoming issues and more by joining our weekly newsletter and following us on Facebook and Twitter.

Learning how

a strong stake aids
a slender, unassailable 

stalk is a matter of self-
denial and solace.

Send more Chuck Berry, went the joke—how the aliens would reply when they got their first spin of the Golden Record on the Voyager. Sweet, friendly aliens with toe-tapping rhythm (whether or not they had feet), an appreciation for sweat and guitar riffs pooling together even if they had no first-hand experience with either.

I like the black & white. I like
the mirage they create. I like
            planes. I like stray dogs
who never forget where I come from.
