Drowning Gull is a literary platform dedicated to publishing what other popular literary magazines often won’t… including screenplays, book reviews, novel excerpts, comic strips, and pretty much anything else out of the ordinary that you can think of. Maybe you have some fiction or narrative nonfiction that in some way strays from the norm, and you are struggling to place it.
For info on how to submit, please check out The Drowning Gull’s Submission Guidelines page.
There is no deadline for submissions. We consider work on a rolling basis.
Some things we do differently to most other magazines:
1) Where possible, we try to respond with some feedback on your piece. However, this is because The Drowning Gull hasn't received many submissions-- and may therefore be subject to change. DO NOT SUBMIT if you aren't open to suggestions.
2) Our aim is to respond within a month, but often do so in less than a week. Again, this depends on the workload.
3) We pay special attention to eccentric, avant-garde pieces... but that is no judgement on quality. We just have a different aesthetic.
4) The Drowning Gull considers submissions of short films.
