Deadline: March 15.
District Lit. seeks poetry, nonfiction, and art submission. Currently, it reads submission for its Disability, Medicine, and Illness themed issue. The upcoming issue will highlight what it means to live with a disability, illness, or undergo medical treatments. According to District Lit.,
We want writing and art about chronic illness, disability, medical histories and procedures, recovery, and the body in all its forms. Send us your rawest poetry, powerful CNF, and embodied art.
For this special issue, District Lit. wants less than 800 words creative nonfiction. So, submit stories on Submittable that surprise, that situates the readers immediately and that impresses with immediacy. If you submit translations, you must have permission from the original author and include the original work in your submission.
Submit one to three poems. It also rarely publishes poems longer than one hundred lines. It welcomes interconnected series of poems, however. And it accepts experimental forms but rather prefer grammatically understandable poems. Again, you can submit translations as you have permission.
Save your nonfiction or poetry submission as a single .doc, .docx, or .rtf file titled with your last name and the genre (such as RICHARDS_FICTION.DOC). You can also tender your high-quality digital files, photographs, or scans of 72dpi RGB. Make sure they are at least 1024 px wide. And include a short artist’s statement about your work.
It does not accept e-mail submissions. Submit all work must be submitted through Submittable. Emailed submissions will not be read. If you must withdraw your submission before it notifies you, please withdraw it on Submittable.
