Every month I pick a literary journal to focus on, in hopes of getting published in one someday. I’ve made a list of my favorites and will go back to it later when I have material that I feel the journal might like. Here is the literary journal I have my eye on for May.
Literal Latte has been around since 1994 and was one of the first literary magazines to have an online presence. They accept poetry, fiction, essays, art and more. They look for great writing and mind stimulating stories. Why Literal Latte is a magazine you should consider submitting too:
- Submissions are accepted year round
- They accept writing in all styles and subjects
- 98% of what they publish comes from the “slush pile”
- Simultaneous submissions are welcome
So if you have a short story or essay you would like to submit that’s up to 6,000 words, short plays or poems that are up to 4,000 words, or any art such as cover art to paintings I invite you to do so! Click here to check out the submission page for more details. They also have fiction and poetry contests throughout the year. The “Short Short Contest” ends on June 30th and their “Poetry Awards Contest” ends on July 15th. Cash prizes can be won in both contests.
