MAYDAY Magazine accepts submissions October 1 - May 1.
Please submit all work to our online submission manager, Submittable. We prefer .doc files, but .docx, .rtf, and Open Office files are okay, too. Please see full submission details below.
Please type and double-space your submission. There's no minimum size, but we're most interested in fiction under 5,000 words. Please only send us one full-length submission at a time. You may send up to three flash fiction submissions.
In addition to personal essays, we're interested in book reviews, cultural commentary, and critical work. There's no minimum size, but contact us first if your submission is more than 5,000 words. Please only send one submission at a time.
Please submit 3-5 poems in a single Word file. Poems can be 1-10 pages in length.
The translator must have secured rights for the translations submitted, or the work must be in the public domain. Please include both the original and the translated text.
VISUAL ART & GRAPHIC NARRATIVES
Do not submit your work here--please send a link to your work or graphic files to this address: email@example.com.
We publish traditional book reviews (750-1250 words) of works of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, scholarship, and translation published in the past three years. We also accept review essays (1750-3500 words) which place a book within a tradition, compare the book to other authors, or use the book to form an argument of one's own.
Please type and double-space your submission, and send only one submission at a time.
