Call for Submissions

Calls for Submissions listings from Literary Mama – January 2017

litmamaLiterary Mama posts a list of calls for submissions for their readers on the first Wednesday of every month. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter to get updates on other calls as they come up. Literary Mama’s tagline is “writing about the many faces of motherhood.” They publish “literary writing about the many faces of motherhood. Since 2003, we have featured poetry, fiction, columns, and creative non-fiction that may be too raw, too irreverent, too ironic, or too body-conscious for traditional or commercial motherhood publications.”

This month includes upcoming Literary Mama calls, contests, and a variety of online lit mags looking for prose and poetry. A few are paying markets.

DEADLINES: Listed for each call in the post. Several deadlines coming up in January and February.

FEES: Some of these calls are contests and some do require fees. 

PAYMENT: A few are paying markets.
