We always accept Lightning submissions for timely pieces that address the political or cultural moment.  We also always accept pieces for:

  • Zest!, our new food writing section.
  • WISE, our science writing section.
  • Resistance, our first-ever themed issue, due out in May and connected to Resistance Mic!

Submissions are now closed, however, for fiction, memoir, poetry, and comics, while we’re busy putting together our Spring 2018 print edition (Pangyrus V).

Submissions reopen March 1, for our Fall 2018 print edition, Pangyrus VI. For details see our Submittable page:
