We now read year round, and try to respond to submissions within three months. If we haven't responded to a submission after 120 days, feel free to query us.
To get a good idea of what kind of work we're seeking, please look at our previous issues.
Poetry Please attach and send up to five poems or up to 10 pages of poetry to TwelfthHouseJournal@gmail.com with "Poetry Submission" as your email subject. Submissions will be accepted as .doc, .docx, .rtf and .pdf. (Please only .pdf files if absolutely necessary.) We accept simultaneous submissions. Please let us know as soon as possible if a poem is accepted elsewhere. Only submit one time per reading period.
Nonfiction Please attach and send one essay, up to 5000 words, to TwelfthHouseJournal@gmail.com with "Nonfiction Submission" as your email subject. Submissions will be accepted as .doc, .docx and .rtf files. We accept simultaneous submissions. Please let us know as soon as possible if your essay needs to be withdrawn.
Art We're now seeking visual art submissions for the first time. We would prefer a link to a personal website of your work (and you can specify what work in particular you're interested in us considering), but we will also accept .rtf, .jpeg, and .pdf files as well.
