GENERAL HYPERTEXT MAGAZINE SUBMISSIONS

Online Edition Reading Period Open Through June 2017

(Print Edition Reading Period Info HERE)

 

Before submitting, please read our magazine and become familiar with our content.  We publish a wide range of voices – from emerging to established writers.  We also publish a wide range of content – from safe to not-so-safe. We are a small operation.  We do this for love.  If it’s not for you, it’s not for you.  If it’s for you, it’s for you. Enough said.

Since 2010, Hypertext Magazine has been publishing stories, essays, and interviews by writers who take chances, push forms, and see things differently. We’re suckers for stories with a whole lot of life pumping through them, stories from and about all ages and types of people, stories that change the way we view the world.

In addition to startling, vibrant, surprising fiction and essays, Hypertext is looking for serial fiction and graphic novels, editorial cartoons, and interviews. If you have ideas for any of these forms, just email us and your idea will be considered.

Hypertext print issue submissions will be accepted November 2016 through March 2017. Check out the print issue guidelines HERE.

KEEP IN MIND

We’re a small lit mag and can’t pay you (although we’d like to…really, we would). So, when we publish your work, you agree to give us first-time online publishing rights. If you would like to publish it in the future, please do mention that it was published here first. When you become insanely famous, we’ll remind you to contribute to the operating costs of our magazine.

You will hear back from from us in 3-4 months, ideally sooner. Feel free to nudge Chelsea via email if you have not heard back by 4 months.

Submit below via the Submittable button.

SAFETY PIN POSTS

This is a space where we invite young people of all ages (pre-K through college-age students) to submit up to 100 words – poetry, short essays – reflecting their thoughts on the recent election. Absolutely no hate (either way). If needed, we will do light editing (but we will not change meaning). Visual art – illustrations and photography – will also be accepted. If accepted, we will send a release form for a parent or guardian to sign. We will not post work without an adult’s permission if the young person is under 18. Please be aware that we publish high school writers and writing by adults on Hypertext Magazine.

We like flash fiction in pairs or trios. Please send all in one document.

Include a brief cover letter with your bio and email/contact information on first page of the manuscript.

ESSAYS – ONLINE & PRINT
