Walled City Literary Review is a quarterly magazine containing poetry, prose, and hybrids. We want work that makes us feel something, and writing that is thoughtful-provoking and powerful.
ISSUE I Submissions are open now [February 15 – March 15, 2021]
We do not accept pieces that marginalise communities or engage in promoting any one of the negative -isms (e.g. racism, sexism). We accept work that’s close to your heart, moves you, allows you to love yourself a little bit more. We ONLY accept previously unpublished work.
We reserve the right not to accept submissions that we feel do not fit with our values or believe would find a better home elsewhere.
Send us your work using Google Forms linked under each category. You may submit to all three categories, but kindly do not submit to each category more than once during a reading period.
We accept simultaneous submissions as long as you inform us upon acceptance from the other magazines immediately.
RESPONSE TIME & PAYMENT
Our standard reply time is 2 weeks after the submission period ends.
We do not pay as we are just a startup, but we will proudly act as a platform for you to showcase your work (both in our magazine and on our social media accounts).
If you have any questions, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
