The Knicknackery: Now Accepting Submissions

Written by Ella Peary | June 5, 2014

The Knicknackery is a new online magazine of poetry and prose, launched earlier this year. As their name suggests, The Knicknackery aims to publish an eclectic collection of misfit pieces, the kind of strange heirlooms you might keep on your shelf, the kind that might haunt you. They want off-kilter, boundary-hopping experiments. As a new magazine, their taste is still a bit unpredictable, but you can get a sense of what they like by reading past issues online.

Right now, The Knicknackery is accepting submissions for their fourth issue. Writers may submit work online, but not via post or email. They accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that writers notify them if their work is published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work. Submitting writers should expect a response within three months. Writers published in The Knicknackery will receive a token payment for their work.

Poets may submit up to five poems. Fiction and nonfiction writers may submit one story, essay, or work of narrative nonfiction up to 1500 words. They also accept flash fiction up to 1000 words. The Knicknackery welcomes foreign language submissions in all genres, accompanied by English translations. Writers should submit only one set of work at a time in any genre.

The Knicknackery also publishes artwork in a wide variety of styles and media. They prefer submissions to be in gray-scale, halftones, or black and white, and they have an affinity for charcoal, pencil, and ink illustrations.
