**ANNOUNCEMENT: Fees will be waived for all Black and Indigenous writers to support those most targeted by state violence. Email editor [at] anomalouspress [dot] org to request a fee waiver.

Thank you for liking us enough to submit! We're grateful that you're considering us as a home for your work. We accept poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translations submissions through our Submittable platform only. 

Please send Folio Proposals to Gillian Joseph and Lip Manegio at Folio proposals are accepted fee-free on a rolling basis year-round.

Please send Comics submissions to

General submissions in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, comics, and translation are open October 1 - February 1 and May 1 - August 1. 

We do not accept AI-generated or AI-assisted prose or art. AI-assisted poetry may be sent in so long as it is clarified in the cover letter that AI-based technologies were employed.

To cover operational costs, we must charge a $3 fee for each submission. If, for reasons of financial hardship, you cannot afford to pay the submission fee or if this fee is a barrier, please send us an email at editor at anomalouspress dot org.

We strongly encourage you to take a look at to see previous issues and see if you think your work is a good fit.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but we ask that you notify us immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. You can use this handy system to withdraw, or leave a note on your submission.

We only consider previously unpublished work. That includes work published on personal blogs, sorry. We're especially interested in work that uses the medium of the web as part of its compositional strategy.

We aim for a three-month response time, but we're only human. Because we're an all-volunteer organization we try our very best to offer a fair turnaround time, about four months. For any genre other than poetry please drop us a line if you haven't heard from us within three months. For poetry submissions, we can't respond to individual inquiries: if you haven't heard from us yet, it's because we're still working on your submission. We get over 1000 poetry submissions every period and are spending time reading each one carefully.

Send us your best, most challenging work through Submittable today.
