The Common publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and images that embody particular times and places both real and imagined: art powerful enough to reach from there to here.
Previously published authors include Rafael Campo, Ted Conover, Lauren Groff, Honor Moore, Sabina Murray, Mary Jo Salter, Jim Shepard, and Marina Tsvetaeva. Poetry submissions are closed due to a specially curated portfolio of work from South Africa in Issue 03, but will reopen in the spring. However, subscribers may continue to submit their work, in any genre, year-round.
Reading period for submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and images for Issue 03 is from September 15th through December 15st. Visit our website for more information.
