SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED!

They will reopen on December 1st 2022 - January 1st 2023

Send your submissions to:

toilandtroublelitmag@gmail.com

Please do not send a biography at the moment. We will request one should your piece be selected for the issue.

Theme & Content

The theme for Issue 02 is... ANIMALS

  • Submissions can be about anything related to the theme. If you don't think it will be apparent at first how your piece relates to the theme, feel free to explain it in the body of your submission e-mail.

  • Your submission will automatically not be accepted if it promotes any form of hatefulness. If your submission discusses forms of hatefulness without promoting it, that is more than okay.

  • If your submission contains content warnings/trigger warnings, please include them in your submission (in italics, under the title if possible). Explicit content is not an issue so long as it has a purpose.

Poetry

  • Please submit a maximum of two poems, titled, and in separate documents

  • .doc or .docx files only

  • If your poems have specific formatting, please also send a PDF version 

Fiction & Creative Non-Fiction 

  • We accept one piece up to 2,000 words

  • .doc or .docx files only

 

Artwork/Photography

  • If you would like to include a commentary on your piece, we'd love that! We accept commentaries up to 500 words 

  • PNG or JPEG files​

Other Things to Note:

  • At no point will you be charged a submission fee.

  • Successful submissions are unfortunately not yet compensated.

  • Written submissions must be in English or translated into English before submission, please.

  • We do not accept work that has already been traditionally published, self-published, or published in another lit mag before. We want to see work that needs a home rather than work that already has one.

  • We welcome multiple submissions in different mediums, but (in the case that your submission is successful) only one piece will be accepted.

  • We also welcome simultaneous submissions. But if one or all of your pieces get accepted elsewhere, please send us an e-mail to withdraw your submission.

  • If you would like a little feedback when you receive a response, please let us know in the body of your e-mail.
