Call for Submissions

Where to Submit in Dec 2016/Jan 2017 by Entropy + special section for Post-Election themed calls (filtered for no fee only!)

entropyEntropy is a “website featuring literary & non-literary content. A website that seeks to engage with the literary community, that becomes its own community, and creates a space for literary & non-literary ideas.”

Earlier this month they posted an article on where to submit in December and January. They’ve also included a special section for post-election themed submission calls. Click here to read the complete article.  I’ve filtered the list below to those whose deadlines have not yet past, have no fees, and accept poetry submissions. There are some paying markets. Read all the guidelines carefully before submitting your work.

If you run a lit mag/journal and have a submission call you want added to the Entropy list, send it in similar format to these listings to Dennis James Sweeney here: dennis@entropymag.org

The following listings from the article are still open, have no fees, and accept poetry submissions:
