Submission Guidelines

We will publish two issues per year with one in Autumn and one in Spring. Submissions for our Autumn issue will be open from July 1 to October 1, with a release date of November. Similarly, submissions for our Spring issue will be open from January 1 to April 1, with a release date of May

Submissions for Issue 1: Swampland are currently CLOSED.

Submissions for Issue 2 will open on January 1, 2022.

Please direct submissions to mosspuppymag@gmail.com as attachments. In the body of your email, please introduce yourself and provide a brief cover letter - no need for anything fancy. In the subject of your email, please note the genre you are submitting to as well as your name (ex: Prose - Melissa Martini). Please note any trigger warnings in both your cover letter and at the top of your submission document. We aren't picky re: formatting, but standard Times New Roman, font size 12, double spaced is appreciated.

 

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but we do not accept previously published work at the moment. We ask for  First North American serial rights, but all rights revert back to you upon publication. Please credit Moss Puppy Magazine as the first place your work has appeared if it is later published elsewhere.

While we cannot pay contributors at this time, we hope that this will be an option in the future. <3
