Submissions for the Summer 2019 print issue of Serendipity are open until April 30, 2019. We are particularly interested in work that grapples with the intersections of race, gender, disability, and sexuality in our current socio-political climate. LGBTQ women of color are strongly encouraged to submit. Please do not submit if you do not identify as a person of color.

Serendipity is a literary journal specializing in poetry, prose, and art that engages with issues of race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, and intersecting identities. We seek work that explores, celebrates, and interrogates all aspects of our identities; and work that delights and beguiles our readerly sensibilities. Formerly an online journal, we are now also publishing an annual print publication featuring fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art. Our goal is to publish exciting work that amplifies marginalized voices, particularly that of same-gender loving women of color.

Writers: We accept prose submissions under 5,000 words and no more than three (3) poems, in either .doc or .docx format. Please use 12pt font, 1-inch margins, and number your pages. Include your last name, genre, and title of the work in the header.

Artists: Please submit up to six images in separate files.

All work must be previously unpublished. This includes blogs and other online publications. 

Cover letters are optional.

Please include a current bio of no more than 75 words written in third person.

Contributors will receive one free copy of the print journal as payment.

We accept simultaneous submissions. Please notify us immediately if work you submitted has been accepted elsewhere.

We look forward to reviewing your submissions!
