Kaaterskill Basin Literary Journal is now accepting fiction and poetry submissions for our Spring 2016 issue.
Our theme for issue I.ii is winged things. Send us your stories of angels and owls, your poems of dragons and butterflies, your paintings of ravens and mosquitoes. Send your sketches of faeries and fireflies, your sculptures of pterodactyls and peacocks, your lithographs of phoenixes and flying monkeys. We can’t wait to see them. We accept all fiction and poetry submissions through Submittable. Artwork should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
We accept submissions on a rolling basis. Any submissions received after the Winter 2016 issue has been finalized will be considered for the Spring 2016 issue.
We are looking to publish short and flash fiction, poetry, word art, and artwork that can be considered “strange and beautiful.” That’s open to interpretation. Literary sci fi and fantasy, weird tales, bizarro, or just literary stories that are kind of quirky and/or adorable.
We are committed to publishing works by a diverse population of artists, and encourage submissions from underrepresented groups and marginalized populations. We especially would like to feature the work of women, people of color, disabled and neurodivergent writers and artists, and queer, trans* genderqueer, nonbinary, and two spirit people.
Please include a brief bio, word count, and genre in your email and attach your submission as a .doc, .docx, or .rtf file.
We strongly prefer standard manuscript format and ask that you please use times new roman or courier font, 12 point, 1 inch margins.
We happily accept simultaneous submissions as long as you inform us at the time of the submission and notify us immediately if your submission has been accepted elsewhere. Click here to submit.
We do not accept reprints of literature, but may accept reprints of artwork. Please query at email@example.com
