Kingdoms in the Wild: Now Seeking Submissions

Written by Ella Peary

Kingdoms in the Wild, an online literary magazine launched in 2016, is seeking poetry and fiction that moves readers beyond popular issues to the underlying heart of communication, which mends all fractures. They want to showcase writing that represents the broad spectrum of our meaning-making systems, writing from all of our vast human fields: histories, religions, cultures, and traditions. They are looking for our human essence, born in the body and then written on the page.

Kingdoms in the Wild accepts submissions year-round, and they publish new content frequently. To get an idea of what they publish, you can read the journal online. Right now they aren’t able to pay contributors, but they hope to do so in the future.

Poets may submit up to six poems. Authors of fiction may submit literary or speculative work, up to 6,000 words. Kingdoms in the Wild does not accept serialized fiction; all stories should be complete in themselves.

Kingdoms in the Wild accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.
