Submissions Guidelines

The theme of Issue 3 is “Origins.” We will give priority to works related to this topic.

We’re most interested in authentic, honest work that indirectly touches on the spiritual nature of humanity. We prefer writing that is accessible to a wide readership, and transcends genre. It is recommended that you read one of our past issues before submitting. You can download a free copy of our first issue, or pick up the second issue on Amazon.

We do consider previously published written work. Please indicate on your submission where the piece was originally published.

Our team of volunteers will do our best to reply to all submissions in a timely manner. Acceptance letters will be emailed at the end of the submission period.

We like poems of any length, in either free verse or traditional forms. Please send 1 to 5 poems at a time.


Preference will be given to photographs that relate to the theme of the issue. We will consider both photos that can stand alone as their own work of art, or images that can be edited or cropped for the magazine layout. Please submit 1 to 5 high-resolution photographs at a time.
