Memoryhouse Magazine: Now Seeking Submissions

Written by Ella Peary | March 17, 2016

Memoryhouse is an online magazine dedicated to documenting personal narratives. They publish all genres of writing—poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and everything in-between—as long as the work presents a personal story. At Memoryhouse, they love all forms of over-sharing—diary entries, autobiographies, personal tragedies, ego-trips, and neurotic exposés. Produced by students at the University of Chicago, the Memoryhouse project also features evocative visual art and a performance ensemble of musicians and actors who tour campus events. You can get a sense of their style by browsing past issues online.

Memoryhouse is published four times a year. They accept submissions year-round; however, submissions are reviewed as a whole twice per quarter. You can find the deadline for their most current review period online. They welcome poems, essays, works of narrative nonfiction, short stories, and works of flash fiction. Authors may submit any number of pieces of any length.

Memoryhouse accepts submissions via email, but not online or by post. Authors whose submissions are accepted by Memoryhouse have the opportunity to work with the Memoryhouse editors to prepare their writing for publication. The editing process is intended to be constructive for both the authors and editors. Though authors are not required to accept all suggested changes, they should be prepared to adjust their writing according to editorial guidance.
