Thimble: Now Seeking Submissions

Written by Ella Peary

A brand-new, beautifully designed online magazine, Thimble focuses on publishing poetry. Thimble is looking for work that speaks to writers. They suggest that submitting authors ask, “Does this piece of writing give me shelter?” Though they primarily publish poetry, they also accept short stories, essays, and interviews. You can get a sense of their style by reading Thimble online.

Thimble is seeking submissions through the end of February. Authors can sign up for their free newsletter to stay informed about when submissions open and close.

Poets may submit three to five poems. Authors of prose may submit fiction, creative nonfiction, or genre-bending work. Thimble prefers to publish prose around 1,000 words. Essayists may submit pieces about contemporary literature or art, 1,000 to 3,000 words. All submissions should be accompanied by a brief bio.

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