Editorial Focus

Your Impossible Voice publishes brash and velvety new work from around the globe, including fiction, poetry, nonfiction, translations, literary reviews, essays, excerpts, art, and interviews.

What We Are Looking For

  • We are most interested in voice-driven, off-center, and innovative work. Please read our most recent issue if you're unsure what that means.
  • All submissions should be of previously unpublished work.
  • We have no minimum word count and rarely publish work longer than 15,000 words.

Tips From the Editor

Your Impossible Voice only accepts submissions through submittable. Do not email us your submissions or send us hard copies—we will not consider them. We ask that you only submit one piece of prose at a time or three pieces of poetry. We will respond to all submissions, so please be patient. All submissions should be of previously unpublished work. We will not consider work that has appeared elsewhere, whether in print or online.
