The reading period for our Fall 2020 issue, Conjunctions:75, Dispatches from Solitude, is now open. 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 We do not publish academic essays or book reviews. All submissions must be in English and previously unpublished.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 ask that writers withdraw their manuscript immediately if it's accepted elsewhere for publication. Please wait twelve weeks before inquiring about your submission status.

We 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.

The bones and crosses left out for him an emerald

Cicada dying attended by ants the emperor’s pleading face

All over town I dragged it behind me like a wing
A Selected Text from Conjunctions:74, Grendel’s Kin: The Monsters Issue
June 29, 2020
Quisa had fallen into the habit of disappointing herself, and then disappointing herself a little more, with the words she let slip from her mouth. She kept talking to people in this hungry, intimate way, as if they too had spent the time of their lives in their heads and read the warning labels too closely and worried irrationally about their lymph nodes. Accidental confessions are what these amounted to.

Four cops come. Both parents are arrested, D&D. The children—William, six, and Stephanie, three—are taken by CPS.

     The neighborhood will be quiet for almost two weeks.
