Editorial Focus

Your Impossible Voice publishes brash and velvety new work from around the world. We’re looking for quality fiction, nonfiction, poetry, translations, and more. We like urgency, innovation, intelligence, and risk. We’re interested in what language can do and in challenging our own preconceptions. Send us work that frustrates our ideas of beauty and illuminates surreal new intersections. Ignite our understanding of form. We are drawn to sharp juxtapositions, secret codes, and mysterious circumstances.

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 All submissions should be of previously unpublished work.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.
