Spry Literary Journal features undiscovered and established writers' concise, experimental, hybrid, modern, vintage or just-plain-vulnerable writing. It's a journal for people who excel at taking risks, who thrive under pressure--for people whose words and rhythms are spry. We are currently open for submissions for the second issue, which will be published in May.
We accept all short forms of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. We also challenge you to write sparsely (under 750 words) and submit to our Flash category. Submissions are requested in all genres, and simultaneous submissions are welcome. We have a strict blind submissions policy, and only accept writing through our submissions manager. Our first issue is live here. Please head over to see what we've published in our inaugural issue, and to start conversations with our authors, poets, and staff members. Renowned writer Porochista Khakpour is interviewed in the issue as well.
Please visit our submissions manager to submit your work to us.
