Editorial Focus

DarkWinter Literary Magazine is an independent online publication which focuses on short fiction and poetry. Whether you’re emerging or established, the editors want your weird, your traditional with a twist, your humour, your dark thoughts, or your elation. They’re open to anything—just make it interesting. Make them think.

Tips From the Editor

We’re looking for short fiction and poetry with a twist. Keep it under 2,000 words for prose and 500 words for poetry (more than one short story or poem are acceptable as long as together they are under the requested word count). Please include a brief third-person biography (150 words or less) with your submission. We accept simultaneous submissions but please withdraw if you’ve been accepted elsewhere. We are an inclusive publisher. We reserve the right to refuse any work that contains racism, sexism, homophobia or transphobia.
