I thought I was good because I had borne the brunt of society’s manhandling, because through halls
of terror I fled and gangs of girls followed me, seeking to press thumbs deep into
my arms, cheeks, back of my neck, thighs, because goodness lay heavy in the air around me, because
most around me were powerful underprivileged role models, I thought it good enough
to know and read vexatious histories and in my own private sanctum feel the pain, to dwell
in sorrow through theater and dance, that just by being around, goodness could rub off on a person

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.
Submissions will also be accepted electronically via Submittable twice a year, during our fall and winter reading periods. Our fall period has now closed; please check back for exact dates for our spring submissions window. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter or subscribe to our newsletter for the earliest information about our reading periods for each issue. If you'd like to submit to Conjunctions outside of our fall and spring Submittable periods, please submit via postal mail.
