GENERAL HYPERTEXT MAGAZINE SUBMISSIONS

(HYPERTEXT REVIEW 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 and we do this for love (not money).

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 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.

Consider purchasing Hypertext Review 2017, our first annual lit journal. We’re super proud of it because it has awesome stories from incredible writers (and, as an added bonus, you can read it in public and look very hip). Your purchase will not only give you an idea of what kinds of stories we publish but it truly helps keep our virtual doors open.

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.
