Submission Guidelines

Peripheries invites new and emerging artists, especially those who have traditionally not been represented in literary circles.

 

We welcome submissions from all, and are currently accepting submissions. Please email us with your name and genre in the subject line, with a brief artist's bio and the submissions attached as a  .doc, docx, or .pdf. Please do not include identifying information in the file itself. 

 

We accept simultaneous submissions and previously published work. If your work has been previously published, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the right to re-publish. Please provide us the details of any previous or forthcoming publications of your submitted works. 

If you wish to withdraw your submission or your submission has been accepted elsewhere, please write to us with this information (including where your piece has been accepted) in the same email chain of your original submission.

Submissions may be sent as .PDF or Word files to peripheriesjournal@gmail.com
