Grub Street Literary Magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Grub Street is now accepting submissions for our 2018 issue (to be published in May of 2018). The submission deadline is January 28, 2018. Submission guidelines are as follows:

Anyone is welcome to submit. Please limit your submissions to five poems, two prose pieces, and five works of visual art per issue. Any submissions in excess of these limits will not be read, and only previously unpublished works will be considered for publication.

Please limit your word documents to .doc and .docx files, and please remove all identifiable information from your document (your name, email address, etc.). 

Please submit one work per file. Do not submit group submissions (e.g. if you submit five poems, do not submit those five poems in one .doc or .docx file--create five separate submissions).

Visual art should be at least 4x6 inches and sent as a .png, .raw or high-quality .jpeg file type with at least 300 dpi and a file size of at least 1 MB.

Genre-specific submission guidelines can be accessed by clicking the appropriate +Show Guidelines option, and can also be found on the upload page after clicking Submit.

We look forward to receiving your work and wish you the best of luck in your literary and artistic endeavors.

It is assumed all submissions are original creations. Please credit your sources. Questions not addressed in these guidelines may be directed to
