- OUR SUPPORTERS
LandLocked Magazine, a publication of the Graduate Creative Writing Program at the University of Kansas, is seeking submissions of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and visual art. We seek writing that is innovative, that pushes beyond the dense thicket of the unexplorable. We accept all genres―speculative, realistic, and those hybrid bodies of works yet to be named. Send us your weird, your reality, your resistance
Our general submissions are open from October 1 to February 1. We do not charge submission fees. Send us up to five poems, and prose that is under 4,000 words. Our full submission guidelines can be found on our website.
We especially welcome work from writers who have been historically marginalized and erased in both academia and publishing: authors who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color, LGBTQIA, disabled, and writers from outside North America and/or the Anglophone world.
About us: LandLocked is a reinvention of Beecher’s Magazine, which ran for eight years. Our new name considers what it means to explore a place considered unnavigable and represents our Kansas boundary lines along with those lines we cross in writing.
