We are looking for writing about/from the body. Feel free to interpret this however you choose, but know that for the purposes of this journal we are most excited about writing that is for the body as well: make us tremble, shake, cry, laugh, tingle, and sigh. Your work should leave us hyper aware of the skin on our fingertips, the breath in our lungs. We are particularly interested in work that takes into consideration gender and race, bodies that have been and still are marginalized. We also welcome submissions of visual art/photography. Only previously unpublished work will be considered. Submissions are always open; we publish on a rolling basis.
Poetry: Up to five poems per author.
Prose: You may submit more than one short prose piece at once, as long as the total word count does not exceed 4,000 words.
Visual Art & Photography: Up to three JPG files.
Submissions should be sent by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your email should contain the following information:
In the subject line include your last name followed by the category of your submission (i.e., Name – Short Fiction)
In the body of your email, include your full name, email address, mailing address, title of your submission(s), word count (for prose submissions), and a short 3rd person bio (3-4 lines).
Attach your submission as a PDF, Word, or JPG document to your email.
If you are making multiple poetry or art submissions, please attach each submission to your email as a separate document.
For prose entries, text should be double spaced and 12-pt in a readable font.
We are not able to provide monetary compensation for published pieces.
We do not accept previously published works.
You will receive notification whether or not your work is accepted. Please do not send inquiries.
We welcome simultaneous submissions! If your work is published elsewhere before you are notified by M Review, please let us know via email.
