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.
To submit, email us at email@example.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.
Fecund highlights exceptional works of new abundance. The magazine is a medium through which writers and visual artists are exquisitely showcased and paid for their work. Fecund publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, theory, criticism, fashion writing, and visual art via interdisciplinary media (text, audio, video, new media).
Although we don’t conform to one aesthetic, we respond to work that challenges traditional forms or embraces liminality.
We seek stories that challenge, stories that shift our view, ignite our imaginations, spark conversations, and linger with us long after our eyes leave the page. We invite you to explore, expound, and inspire through short plays, fiction, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, new media, and visual art.
Required Format: Times New Roman 12pt. All prose should be double-spaced. Poetry should be single-spaced. Drama should follow standard play manuscript formatting. Ponder Review does not accept previously published material nor does it accept multiple submissions per issue. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but contact Ponder Review if your work has been accepted elsewhere.
