We knew full well when we got into the business of unsolicited submissions that we’d be bathing in manuscripts from creative, enterprising folks like yourself. But at a certain point, we’ve got to protect ourselves from drowning.
So, in the interest of survival and to ensure that every submission is given the fair shake it deserves, we have closed submissions until Memorial Day 2013. That’s right, before next summer we’re regrettably unable to consider any new queries, no matter how cute, clever, or cutting-edge they may be.
Sign up for Atticus Digest, our monthly e-newsletter. *Like* our Facebook page. Follow us on Twitter. Become a friend of Atticus, in part for self-respect and in part because we’ll respect you more if we don’t think you’re using us.
We also encourage writers to submit short stories, poems, and literary essays for potential publication in Atticus Review, our weekly online journal, and/or on our website.
If you’re interested in having your work considered for publication, go to the submissions page of Atticus Review on Submishmash.
If you’re the gregarious, ambitious type and have an idea for a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or even sporadically written column, e-mail Dan Cafaro, the publisher, at email@example.com. The worst that can happen is he’ll never receive your submission because cyber gremlins ate it, and you’ll think he ignored you. Fortunately for you, our staff, on the whole, doesn’t believe in public castration or humiliation, so you’re safe in that department. In theory, anyway.
