A Public Space submission guidelines

web site

A Public Space welcomes submissions to the magazine from October 15–April 15. Work may be mailed to the Dean Street address above or submitted online through our Submittable page, where guidelines are also available. We are not currently accepting submissions for A Public Space Books. 

Please sign up for our newsletter to receive updates on submission periods. 

A Public Space welcomes submissions of fiction, essay, poetry, as well as multigenre work. 

Guidelines for Submitting Work

Please submit only one (​1) story or essay at a time; or up to five (5) poems. Additional submissions will be returned unread. Only previously unpublished work will be considered. Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but if your piece is accepted elsewhere we ask that you please withdraw it from our system. Novellas and novel excerpts are always welcome. Translations are welcome, but it is the translator's responsibility to secure rights to the work before it is submitted. Reading an issue or two of the magazine before submitting is strongly recommended. 

Please note we cannot accept revisions to pieces once they've been submitted.

We will make every effort to respond to your submissions within four months, though at times it may be longer. If it has been ​more than four months and you have not yet received a response, we will be happy to reply to a query regarding the status of your submission.
