Entropy Magazine Where To Submit Essays

Join the winter club: We’re hunkering down, writing, revising, and sending out our stuff. Here’s a helping hand for the next two months on where to send everything from a book manuscript to flash fiction, from dark fantasy to surreal free verse.

Presses and journals can write to Dennis James Sweeney to be included on the next list. Or, if you’re keen to be involved with this one, feel free to write a comment below.

Snowed in? Huddled in front of the fire under every blanket you’ve ever owned? Winter is writing time, which means it’s submitting time too. Here’s a roundup of presses and journals with open reading periods at the moment. If we missed any, please email our Small Press Editor at dennis@entropymag.org or post a comment and we’ll add them to the list.

Same goes for all future reading periods: as this will be a regular feature on Entropy, we’d love to hear from you whenever your press or publication has an open submissions period. Yukon ho!
