Litro Magazine
Any questions? Contact Precious Williams.

What we accept:
For our print magazine, we only accept short fiction, flash/micro fiction, nonfiction (memoir, literary journalism, travel narratives, etc), and original artwork (photographs, illustrations, paintings, etc) based on the designated monthly theme. Works translated into English are also welcome.

What we don’t accept:
We do publish poetry and novel extracts, but not on an unsolicited basis, so please do not submit any poetry or novel extracts to us—they will not be read.

Upcoming themes:

Detroit (June 2015) – CLOSED
Transgender (July 2015) – CLOSED
Missed Connections (September 2015) – Submit here.
Whodunit (October 2015) – Submit here.
Space (November 2015) – Submit here.
Going Home (December 2015) – Submit here.
Love (February 2016) – Submit here.
Britishness (March 2016) – Submit here.

All submitted work must be your own.
Submitted work must not have been previously published—either in print or online. You can submit the same piece to other publications at the same time, but we ask that you withdraw your submission from Litro immediately when it is accepted elsewhere. We do, however, publish original translations if the work has previously appeared in another language.
Due to print space restrictions, each piece should be about 4,000 words, give or take a little. This is a guideline, not an absolute limit; and in exceptional cases, we will take longer pieces, but in any case no longer than 5,000 words.
Due to the volume of submissions we receive, please submit only one piece per theme. Additional submissions will unfortunately not be considered. You can submit stories for different themes simultaneously, though we should add that if we choose one story for a particular issue, we wouldn’t normally run another story by the same writer for at least a year to allow room for new authors.
Terms & Conditions:

The Author grants Litro the exclusive license to publish the English language Work, in print, audio and electronic form, throughout the world. The Author retains the right to publish the Work in a booklength collection of the Author’s works, or as part of a volume from which the Work is an extract.
