Ruminate Magazine

web site

Deadline: June 16, 2021

Submit via Submittable

Thank you for considering Ruminate Magazine as a potential home for your work. We welcome submissions from both emerging and established writers and are looking for creative nonfiction that engages the contemplative spirit of our journal.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please add a note to your submission if you need to withdraw a piece.

We accept all styles of creative nonfiction—essays, short memoirs, literary journalism, etc.—only requiring that it be in prose form (no line breaks).

We only accept pieces that are under 5,500 words. 

We currently pay nonfiction contributors $20 per 400 words and in contributor copies.

We only accept previously unpublished work.

To help keep our queue moving, please submit no more than once every six months and wait 3-4 months before inquiring about the status of your submission. We look forward to reading your work!
