Hypertext Magazine

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


HYPERTEXT MAGAZINE'S THIRD ANNUAL PRINT WILL ACCEPT SUBMISSIONS IN SEPTEMBER!

This summer, work on polishing a short story or essay. The submission period for our third annual print journal is September, 2017 – March, 2018. 

Submissions should probably not exceed 5,000 words (that said, we're very open to flash fiction and we certainly wouldn't toss out a piece if it is slightly longer). 

Before submitting, please read our magazine to get an idea of the scope and range of the work we publish. We will use selected pieces online and in print.

Consider purchasing Hypertext Review, 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.

GENERAL HYPERTEXT MAGAZINE SUBMISSIONS

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, 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.

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. 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 2-3 months.

Submit, below, in any category through our SUBMISHMASH submissions manager.
