Long Exposure Magazine: Now Accepting Submissions

Written by Ella Peary | October 20, 2016

Founded in 2014, Long Exposure is an online magazine exploring the interaction between writing and visual media by way of publishing poetry, flash fiction, photography, and art. They are interested in studying the new dimensions that arise when language interacts with visual aesthetics. Long Exposure publishes a wide variety of writing and art, and they welcome submissions of all forms and styles. They are especially interested in collaborative work and work that combines writing with visual art. To get a sense of what they publish, you can read past issues online.

Long Exposure is published twice a year, and each issue contains work by around fifteen contributors. They accept submissions on a rolling basis. Poets may submit up to six poems. Though Long Exposure accepts submissions of all forms and styles, they are especially interested in Ekphrastic poems, or poems that combine language with visual art. Fiction authors may submit up to four pieces of flash fiction, 700 words or fewer. Photographers, illustrators, and other visual artists may submit up to six pieces in any medium. Long exposure is also looking for visual artists to comment regularly on writing published in the magazine. If you are interested in becoming a commentator, please visit their website for more details.

In addition to poetry, flash fiction, and visual art, Long Exposure also publishes reviews of poetry collections and articles about poetry. If you would like to submit a poetry collection published within the last year for review, please contact the editor. And, if you would like to write an article or essay for Long Exposure, please submit a brief synopsis to the editor for consideration. They are especially interested in articles dealing with the relationship between writing and visual art, contemporary poetry and poetics, and the relationship between the arts and contemporary culture.

Long Exposure accepts submissions via email, but not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors immediately withdraw submissions accepted elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work; however, they will consider work previously featured on personal media such as blogs and personal websites.
