Hominum open for submissions

web site

All submissions should be emailed to hominumjournal@gmail.com, with the subject line "GENRE-FIRST AND LAST NAME". Please include your submission as an attachment (.pdf, doc(x), or.rtf) along with a brief third-person biography. Cover letters are appreciated but not required.

We appreciate standard conventions, i.e. 12-point Times New Roman or Garamond font. Prose should be double-spaced and poetry single-spaced. However, if deviating from these standards is integral to the artistic integrity of the piece, then by all means do so.

We ask for first North American publishing rights and archival rights on all submissions. All rights revert back to the author upon publication, but we do ask that you mention us in future reprints.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted on the condition that it is acknowledged in the cover letter and we are notified immediately if this work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work unless solicited.

POETRY: Please include up to 5 poems per submission. There is no word or page limit.

PROSE: Please include up to 3 pieces per submission, with no more than 10,000 words total.

VISUAL ARTS: We consider visual artwork for each issue. Please include up to 5 pieces of any medium (painting, photography, digital media, etc.), alongside an artist's statement of around 200 words.

OTHER: We are open to receiving other genres of the literary arts, including (but not limited to) hybrid pieces, one-act plays, screenplays, and songwriting. Guidelines for these submissions vary, so if you're unsure drop us an email or just send it along!
