Emrys Journal--Annual Print Issue


Emrys Journal accepts submissions for the print issue every year from August 1 - November 1. We no longer accept mailed submissions. We are especially interested in promoting emerging writers and underrepresented voices.

Prizes of $250 will be awarded to one selection in each genre for outstanding poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction.

-We accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.

-We recommend reading the most recent issue of Emrys Journal to get an idea of what kind of work we like: http://www.emrys.org/bookstore/

-We allow multiple submissions, but please give us a chance to respond to one piece before sending us another one in the same genre.

-We're not too picky about formatting, but 12 pt. Times New Roman (or something similar) is nice and easy to read.


-We do charge a $2 reading fee, but if this discourages you from submitting, feel free to email your submission to emryswebsubmissions AT gmail DOT com. Please put "Print Submission" in your subject line.


Emrys Journal Online

Our online companion to the print journal is now live: https://medium.com/emrys-journal-online We're seeking flash fiction and nonfiction, poetry, humor, lists and genre-defying miscellany. Prose should be less than 1000 words, and poems should be shortish (less than one page). Submit for free to emryswebsubmissions AT gmail DOT com. You may paste your submission into the body of the email or send a .doc or .docx attachment. We're also on the lookout for comics and visual art, which may be submitted to the same address as a .jpg attachment. Please submit only one piece at a time to the online journal.
