inter|rupture: Now Accepting Submissions

Written by Ella Peary | June 9, 2014

inter|rupture is an online magazine publishing authors who seek to discover new ways of engaging with the current social and metaphysical culture through language. Distinctly experimental and full of sharp edges, inter|rupture is constantly upsetting yesterday’s boundaries. Though inter|rupture is young, it has already earned some noteworthy accolades, with poems from the magazine appearing in the Best of the Net anthology three years in a row (2011, 2012, and 2013), as well as Verse Daily.

Right now, they primarily publish poetry, but they hope to expand to include book reviews, essays, and interviews. They publish work from both emerging and established writers in a wide variety forms and subjects. You can get a sense of what they publish by reading past issues online.

inter|rupture publishes three annual editions in February, June, and October, each with work from about fifteen writers. They accept submissions year-round, and submitting writers can expect a response within three months. Poets may submit up to five poems, along with a cover letter. Fiction writers may submit one piece of flash fiction up to 1000 words, or one short story, 1000 to 2000 words. Submitting writers may send one submission every six months.

inter|rupture only accepts submissions via email, not by post or through an online submissions manager. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that writers notify them immediately if their work is published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
