Editorial Focus

The Rumpus strives to be a platform for marginalized voices and writing that might not find a home elsewhere and to lift up new voices alongside those of more established writers we love.

Tips From the Editor

Our reading periods are January 1 through February 28, June 1 through July 31, and September 1 through October 31.

Agents and publicists: we strongly prefer that writers submit their own work to us. The Rumpus has an exceptional and diverse editorial team; bypassing Submittable results in fewer readers and editors looking at your work.

Rumpus Original Fiction
