Last Day to Submit to Issue 5 of Lit Shark Magazine!


Helloooooo, readers, writers, and shark fans! Welcome or Welcome BACK to Lit Shark Magazine! I’m so grateful you’re interested in submitting.

If you’re specifically interested in submitting to Issue 5 of Lit Shark Magazine, tomorrow (Friday, March 15, 2024) is the last day to submit!

This is a general issue, so we are accepting poetry, short fiction, short nonfiction/memoirs, and plays (as well as hybrid work, like prose poems, microfiction, and pieces featuring multiple genres), and the theme can be anything. Works incorporating marine life are always of interest but are not required for our general issues.

To submit, please see our submission portal page for more details on how to submit.
