Make sure that you send your work, bio note and photo as three separate attachments. The text of your work should be in Times New Roman 12 point font, double spaced.

If we have special features with guest editors, you may have to send your work directly to their email address. We will mention that here when necessary.

The editorial decisions will be taken in consultation with the members of the advisory committee.

We have two submission periods:

March 1st to May 31st for the August issue (wait till July for the editorial decisions)


September 1st to November 30th for the February issue (wait till January for the editorial decisions)

Follow the submission guidelines under each section:

Poetry: You can submit up to 6 poems. There is no minimum or maximum word limit, but we will be comfortable with poems that run between 10 to 40 lines. Form poetry and free verse are welcome. We may choose 3 or 4 poems, depending on the quality and the space we have.

Short Fiction: You can send 1 story, ideally between 1000 to and 6000 words. Novel excerpts are also welcome, if they are stand-alone pieces. We are not totally against genre fiction, though we may show some preference to literary fiction.

Research Papers: We have space for just a couple of research papers in each issue. That means, your paper will have to be original, powerful and relevant. Use the MLA 7th edition format. We welcome papers related to literary theories, creative writing, cultural studies and film theory. Word limit: between 3000 and 6000 words.

Book/Film/Art Reviews: Please do get in touch with us with your ideas before you start working on a review. We need reviews on work that is currently relevant. Word limit: between 800 and 2000 words.

Interviews: Please do get in touch with us first, with news regarding the transcript of the interview you plan to send us, and proceed only if we show some interest in it. Word limit: between 800 to 3000 words.

Photography: We look for work from both established and amateur photographers. You can suggest a photo feature if you have a bunch of themed photographs. Otherwise, we select 2 to 4 photos from the 6 to 10 photos you send us.

Visual Art: We look for unique works of visual art. You can send up to 10 samples, and we will select 2 to 4 of them.

Special Note: Alan Summers from our advisory committee is the editor for The Special Featureon Haiku/Haibun for the August 2013 issue. However, he has informed us that he has already received the sufficient number of entries. You can contact him at for any related query.
