Waymark Literary Magazine seeks fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry

web site

Deadline: November 13, 2020

Waymark accepts unpublished original works of fiction, literary nonfiction, poetry, and art. These can be of any subgenre, because we believe in the infinite paths storytelling may go. Translations are considered if the work has not been published in English before. Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but if your work has been accepted somewhere else, please let us know immediately. Either reach us through our "Contact Us" form, or email eic.waymark@gmail.com.

We accept submissions during our reading periods, which are from January 6th to April 7th, and again from August 17th to November 13th. Response time is around 1-5 weeks. We consider submissions anonymously, so please do not include your name or any personal information in your document. Also, please title each piece and submit pieces in one document. Waymark acquires nonexclusive first serial rights to publish a creator’s work online and in print.

Thank you for your interest in Waymark.
