We welcome poetry, short story and art submissions from all people and places. Send us your most oneiric, moonlit work.

We enjoy writing that’s dream-like but tactile—something that lets one feel the moonbeams between the fingertips.

We are currently closed for submissions and will reopen on January 4, 2021.

To submit, email us at editors@sublunaryreview.com with the subject line Fiction Submission, Poetry Submission or Art Submission. Please include a brief third-person bio. No graphic violence or gratuitous sex, please. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published fiction or poetry. After submitting, please wait one month before submitting again. We accept Russian language submissions; they will be translated into English for publication.

Send me your best poetry. I don’t particularly care whether it’s formal or informal, metrical or free verse, rhyming or not. I’ve written all those possibilities myself. A good poem isn’t one that gets the grades for following particular rules. And I’m sure I’ll reject plenty of good poems anyway.

akinoga press is a Baltimore-based micro-press that specialzes in hand-bound chapbooks of a spacious/minimalist/austere flavor, though we're on the lookout for anything small, quiet, odd, and easily-missed.

We're also dedicated to creating a space for voices that need to be heard and works that 100% need to be read.

AKINOGA PRESS IS NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS/PROJECTS FOR CONSIDERATION

The next open consideration period will likely be some time in fall of 2021, but check back here (or akinogapress.com/submissions) for more details as things solidify.
