Ariel Chart: Now Seeking Submissions of Micro-Fiction and Poetry

Written by Ella Peary | November 2, 2017

Ariel Chart is seeking brief writing. Based in Australia, they publish short works of poetry and microfiction. Like most small things, tiny pieces of writing are often ignored in the publishing world. Ariel Chart hopes to help. They aim to champion meaningful literary works, no matter how small. You can read the work published on their website to get a sense of what they like.

They accept genre pieces, but not fan fiction. Since their platform is entirely online, they only accept work by authors 18 years of age and older. They regret the exclusion of talented younger authors, but note that the rule is a legal necessity. They accept work with profanity; however, they do not accept pieces that promote hateful or hurtful ideas.

Ariel Chart is a monthly online journal, and they post new content frequently. They do not send form letters in response to submissions; rather, they aim to reply to each work with the respect it deserves. When possible and appropriate, they provide insight into how a piece might be bettered.

Poets may submit poems of 50 lines or fewer. Outstanding longer works may be considered. Ariel Chart accepts poetry in a wide range styles: experimental, traditional, literary, and free verse, as well as formal poetry such as haiku, tanka, and senryu. Please do not submit photographs or artwork with poems.

Authors of microfiction may submit shorts up to 1,500 words. That said, they will consider great works up to 3,000 words or so.

Ariel Chart accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, as well as previously published work, as long as the author owns the rights to the piece. Authors published in the journal will be archived on their website as well as credited in P&W’s well-known Directory of Writers.
