400 and Falling Press: Now Seeking Submissions from Emerging Authors

Written by Ella Peary | January 12, 2017

A brand new journal founded by two students hoping to showcase emerging authors from around the world, 400 and Falling Press is seeking poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and visual art, as well as literary and art criticism. They are searching for the next wave of artistic expression, voices that drown us in the oceanic realm of symbolism and metaphor. To get an idea of what they publish, you can preview content from their upcoming print publication online.

400 and Falling will be published biannually in print, and throughout the year online. They accept submissions all year, and right now they are seeking submission from emerging authors for their first print edition, as well as for their ongoing online publication. All work published online will also appear in print, except color artwork, which may be published only online.

Poets may submit up to ten poems of any length, in any style. Fiction and nonfiction authors may submit up to two pieces—flash fiction, short stories, novelettes, or narrative nonfiction—up to 15,000 words each. Visual artists may submit up to 15 pieces. 400 and Falling also accepts works of literary and art criticism. All submissions should include a cover letter with contact information and a short biography written in the third person. Authors published in the journal will receive a copy of 400 and Falling in print.

400 and Falling accepts submissions via email, but not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors immediately withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
