September 1st marks the deadline for Sequestrum: Summer '14 and the beginning of our Fall'14 issue! To browse our archives, subscribe (for free), and find our complete guidelines, visit our website.
For our summer issue, we're interested in poetry (under 35 lines) and fiction and nonfiction (under 5,000 words). Topic and theme are open, our only requirement is to send your best work - and to read a past publication or two to get an idea of what we like.
We average 1,000+ readers a month, keep our archives free and open to the public, are a paying market, and pair all our publications with stunning visual arts created by outside artists or our staff. Our contributors range from award-winning novelists and poets (with other works featured in publications including The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The American Scholar, The Kenyon Review, many other university periodicals, and Best American Anthologies) to emerging voices and first-time writers.
We're proud of our little plot on the literary landscape and the writers and artists we share it with. Come see why.
