Lunch Ticket is a biannual journal published by the MFA community of Antioch University of Los Angeles, a program that is devoted to the education of literary artists, community engagement, and the pursuit of social justice. We are pleased to announce that we are officially open for submissions for our debut issue!
Although the editors of Lunch Ticket share the MFA program's mission and values, our commitment is to publish the best literary writing, regardless of subject matter or theme. The theme of Lunch Ticket's debut issue is "Occupy"; however, we will be considering submissions of all thematic content for inclusion in the publication.
We accept simultaneous submissions. We only ask that you please contact us if your piece is published somewhere else so we might free up room for other authors. We do not accept previously published work.
Submission guidelines for all genres-fiction, creative nonfiction, or writing for young people (YA), our submission guidelines are a maximum of 5,000 words. For flash writing, contributors may submit multiple pieces not exceeding 5,000 words collectively. For poetry submissions, contributors may submit 3-5 poems. For multiple submissions, contributors may submit pieces individually or as one document at their discretion.
All manuscripts should be in 12-point typeface. Fiction and creative nonfiction should be double-spaced. Poetry may be single-spaced. Please number all submission pages as well.
If you'd like to submit a short biographical blurb about yourself, please do, we'd love to know more about you, but rest assured it won't have any impact on whether or not your piece is published.
We look forward to reading your work!
