Explore the current issue and find guidelines, themes, and deadlines for future issues there. We are also accepting manuscripts and proposals for prospective books, both literary and visual.
We’re seeking work that’s energetic, imaginative, and original. Send us fiction with strong, idiosyncratic voices, creative nonfiction that honestly and eloquently strips all pretenses away, and poetry that uses language with power and precision.
To get a feeling for the work we publish, we encourage you to consult the issues available on our website. When you feel ready, please read our submission guidelines and then send us your best work, along with a third-person bio of 100 words or less.
Diagram is an electronic journal of text and art. As our name indicates, we're interested in representations. In naming. In indicating. In schematics. In the labelling and taxonomy of things. In poems that masquerade as stories; in stories that disguise themselves as indices or obituaries.
Cover letters preferred. Electronic submissions strongly preferred.

We aim to publish meaningful, thoughtful, and creative content.

Seeking original fiction, poetry, essays, and scripts/screenplays that include a skeleton, or bones (in all connotations), in some way. (It can be as direct as a skeleton protagonist and as oblique as a passing mention of bones.)
Have fun with the theme. We've had great spooky, gothic work, as well as loving nature poetry, and humorous work.
TL;DR (True Living, Documented Relentlessly) is a home for the avant-garde, unconventional, genre-expanding art/lit so that we might pour out the branded-content-over-saturated spaces of our lives. New voices, new literature.
The more out-of-the-box the submission is, the better. TL;DR is dedicated to literature that expands literature and challenges preconcieved notions about the boxes we write and creatively present our documented realities and histories in.
