To Submit to Lit Shark Magazine:
Thank you for submitting to Lit Shark! To submit, please include your name and email in the fields below. The message box should contain your author bio, the issue you are interested in submitting to (or if this is a Poem of the Month submission), and anything else you’d like us to know (if this work is a reprint and where it was previously featured, etc.).
Your attached document should not include your name or other identifying information, so we can ensure a blind, unbiased reading of your work. Written works should be attached as PDFs or Word docs.
Poetry: Up to 5 poems or 10 pages
Fiction, Short Nonfiction, and Novel Excerpts: Up to 15 pages or 4500 words
Plays: 10-minute plays or up to 10 pages
General submissions are ALWAYS welcome, but some of our issues are themed, so please be mindful of what our themes are for the year, so you can submit your work to the most fitting issue possible.
To Submit to Lit Shark’s Poem of the Month:
Submissions for our Poem of the Month contest are now being accepted through a separate form to help streamline our process. Please see our designated Poem of the Month page for more information, and thank you so much for your interest!
If you’re unable to submit or upload a document using our form, please contact our EIC directly at mckenzie @ litshark [dot] com.
In the BODY of the email, please include your name, your email address, your author bio, the issue you are interested in submitting to (or if this is a Poem of the Month submission), and anything else you’d like us to know (if this work is a reprint and where it was previously featured, etc.).
Your submission should be attached as a PDF or Word doc. Do not include any identifying information. McKenzie will ensure that your submission is randomly mixed into the submission pile to ensure it receives the same blind and fair reading as those submitted through the portal.
Thank you all for your support and for trusting us with your work!
