In all instances PLEASE send us a query email first. Give us a brief description of your book, or project along with the first four chapters, in the case of fiction or non-fiction. In the case of novels and novellas, an outline and the first 25 pages. For POETRY, please send no more than 6 poems in a single attachment. All submissions should be marked “RSP Query” in the email subject line.
Please ensure your excerpts are rigorously edited and well prepared for presentation. Should we wish to see further work, we will contact you. We are a very small voluntary team of readers and editors and we take time with submissions, so please allow for unto eight weeks for an initial reply. While we do not state what we are looking for by way of style or genre, we know it when we read it. We do not publish on a preferential basis; you are welcome to submit regardless of age, race, identity-orientation or nationality.
All submissions should be in a single .docx file, 1.5 spacing and preferably GARAMOND typeface. Should we accept your submission we will request a brief bio and headshot. Please see out AUTHOR PAGES for our preferences. Please indicate if you are willing to receive brief feedback on rejected work. We offer AUTHORIAL SERVICES should you feel your submission is still requires development and are not quite ready to submit. Participation in our writing courses or bespoke editorial services however, is not a guarantee of publication. Due to the high number of submissions and the dedication we place in our published authors means we need to be very selective. We hope this might provide an incentive and inspire your best writing. Please note that submissions ignoring our submission guidelines will be rejected.
PLEASE NOTE: Submissions for Literati Magazine are currently closed.
