1001 Journal: Now Accepting Submissions

Written by Ella Peary | February 26, 2016

1001 Journal is an annual print project produced by the students in the Certificate Program at the Independent Publishing Resource Center in Portland, Oregon. This handsomely designed, handmade journal houses poetry, prose, and comics. At 1001 Journal, they are especially interested in work that employs both words and images and hybrid work that breaks the boundaries of genre. You can get an idea of their style by exploring their blog or listening to their podcast, The Staple, here: https://soundcloud.com/thestaple.

Right now, 1001 Journal is accepting submissions for their upcoming issue through Tuesday, March 15, 2016. Poets may submit three to five poems. Fiction writers may submit up to three pieces of flash fiction, 15 to 400 words; one piece of flash fiction, 400 to 1,000 words; or one short story, 1,000 to 4,000 words. 1001 Journal does not accept genre fiction, excerpts from longer works, interviews, or book reviews. They do, however, welcome pieces that cannot be defined by genre conventions. Pieces of this nature may be submitted under whatever genre best suits the work, and may be explained in an accompanying cover letter.

Comic artists or authors submitting work that employs both image and text may submit one to six pages of color or black and white work formatted to fit an 8.5 x 5.5” page.

1001 Journal accepts submissions via email, but not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors immediately inform the editors via email if a submitted piece is published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work, including personal blog entries.
