LitMag: Now Seeking Submissions

Written by Erica Secor | November 9, 2016

LitMag is a biannual journal currently seeking fiction, nonfiction, and poetry for print and online editions. According to their submissions page, they are most interested in “big minds, large hearts, and sharp pens.” The first online and print issues will be available in the winter and spring of 2017, respectively.

Submission Process:
Regardless of format, LitMag stays green and only accepts submissions via Submittable. Details on word counts, requirements, rights, and response times are available at https://litmag.com/submit/.

Payment:
Accepted work for print editions pay $1,000 for fiction or nonfiction and $250 for poetry.
Accepted work for online editions pays $250, regardless of genre.

Overall Thoughts:
At first I thought the “Issues” and “LitMag Online” pages were broken links, but upon closer inspection, these are intentional placeholders. Since this is such a new publication, the editors have chosen classic stories and poems to show where future work will appear. Aesthetically, the site is clean and minimalist with a muted color scheme in shades of blue and grey. The high quality bodes well for their digital issues.
