Editorial Focus

Night Picnic is a bilingual journal of literature and art that publishes work in both English and Russian. The magazine translates authors’ work into Russian. The editors accept novels, novellas, plays, short and flash stories, fairytales for adults, poetry, interviews, essays (including popular science essays), letters to the editors, and artwork. 

Tips From the Editor

We encourage authors to submit all that is strange, dark, jubilant, complex, confusing, scary, mystical, and multidimensional. We do not publish memoirs, heavy science fiction, political essays, and pornography. We do not publish manuscripts with chauvinistic and fascistic tendencies. You must be at least 18 years old to submit.
