Last Chance to Submit for 2023!


The day is here! If you haven’t submitted for December’s Poem of the Month contest of Issue 4 of Lit Shark Magazine, the final issue of our inaugural year, this is your last chance!

Because we’re reminding you so late in the date on December 4, we WILL consider your submission if we receive it by the end of the day on December 5th. Also, if you’re subscribed to our newsletter, you’ll be receiving a special deadline, as well, tomorrow morning.

If you’re interested in being featured in Issue 4 of Lit Shark Magazine, please see our submission page for our submission requirements. Issue 4 is not themed; we’re looking for general submissions, and no, they do NOT have to have a marine life theme. Send us your favorite poems, stories, short plays, and short memoirs that you’d like to find a home before the end of 2024.

If you’re interested in our final Poem of the Month Contest for 2023, please see our submission page for the contest. These poems also do not have to carry a specific theme, but reprints are not accepted at this time. Also, when you submit to the contest, your work will also be considered for Issue 4 of Lit Shark Magazine, so win-win!


Thank you all for your support, readers, writers, and shark fans.

Happy Writing and Happy Submitting!
