Grist: The Journal for Writers is now reading for Issue 8! We seek quality fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction, as well as essays devoted to discussions of craft. We welcome all styles and aesthetic approaches.
We welcome submissions from writers in every stage of their career and are especially interested in considering work from emerging writers. More than 90% of the content of our most recent issues has come from our general (unsolicited) submissions. We love discovering new voices.
Grist is currently published once a year, in the spring. Each issue also includes an Online Companion in which we feature some of the best work we’ve received during our reading period.
Deadline for submissions is September 15.
Please visit our website for submissions guidelines and to learn more about us! Back issues are also available for $6.
We look forward to reading your work!! --
