Writing Submissions

Sinking City encourages submissions of a wide variety of subversive work from multilingual narrative to avant-garde. We are especially interested in work focused on our changing, at-risk environment. We welcome submissions from August 15th to December 1st and January 15th to April 30th. We are temporarily closed for submissions.

We ask that submissions of fiction and nonfiction be no longer than 7000 words in length. Poetry submissions can include between 3-5 poems (up to 8 pages). Simultaneous submissions are welcome, if noted. Please notify us immediately if the work is accepted somewhere else.

We accept Word and PDF files. In your subject header, please indicate the genre of your submission (Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction, or Art).

Art Submissions

Image files are accepted as JPEG, JPG, PNG, or GIF files. Please send no more than three files.

*Please do not mix genres in the same submission.

Submissions are currently closed. They will reopen in the fall.
