Submitting

If you’d like to submit work for consideration, email it to wparlortricks@gmail.com. The deadline for publication in this year’s print issue has already passed, but we take submissions for the website on a rolling basis.

When submitting writing, please attach the work as a Word document labeled with your name, title, and genre. For example: “Paul Hudson – My Very Fun Day (fiction).” If you’re submitting multiple pieces, please put them all in one document, and title like such: “Paul Hudson – portfolio (six poems and a screenplay).” Include your name and title(s) inside the document.

We have no official page limit, but please send only your best. In general, 30 pages of prose or 15 pages of poetry is more than enough for us to get a sense of your work. Most submissions are significantly shorter than this.

When submitting art, please make sure your images are at least 300dpi. Pieces for print must be at least 3300 pixels in height.

If you’d like to pitch an idea for an essay, interview, or any other project, email wparlortricks@gmail.com or any of the editors. We’re always happy to meet to discuss ideas and give feedback on work in progress. You can find individual editors’ emails under “Our Team.”
