The Gambler is seeking exciting new works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and experimental writing. Open theme, hold nothing back.
The Gambler is an online literary journal that publishes monthly. Work is selected by using a method that relies on chance. Submissions are collected and numbered in the order they arrive and then a random selection of numbers decides. Winning numbers may come from anywhere: a Powerball ticket, an editor’s social security number, or numbers that are divisible by nine. Why nine? Why not?
These selections are then reviewed by editors, put through a revision process (if needed, sometimes submission are wonderful just the way they are), and published online. All pieces are accompanied by an editorial comment.
Our annual “House Wins” issue is coming up in December and submissions are currently being accepted. All pieces submitted under this category will be read and evaluated by editors who will select the best work to feature in this special issue.
The Gambler Magazine is currently docked in New Orleans, and hopes to provide an interesting experiment for the literary community that comments on the nature of publishing, binge drinking, and luck.
