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.

FICTION
Novel excerpts, short stories will be happily considered, too (best not to exceed 20-manuscript pages).

Include a brief cover letter with your bio and email/contact information on first page of the manuscript.

ESSAYS
Include a brief cover letter with your bio and email/contact information on the first page of the manuscript (best not to exceed 20 manuscript pages).

SEND US YOUR BEST SHORT STORIES AND ESSAYS. WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS!

We hope that you polished up your best fiction and essays over the summer because we are ready to read them.  The submission period will be September, 2017 through 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 reserve first-time publishing rights. After that, you are free to publish your piece anywhere you'd like (but be a stand-up-person and do mention that your piece was published here first).

Ends on June 1, 2018

General Submissions - ONLINE CONSIDERATION:  We're looking for unique voices and well-crafted stories.  We dig well-crafted stories in all genres and styles including science fiction, YA, literary fiction.  Short stories or novel excerpts between under 5,000 words seem to work best online.  That said, we're open to flash fiction and (very infrequently) longer work, too.

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).

GENERAL SUBMISSIONS

Hypertext is looking for some truth. Your truth. The kind we can't handle. Opinions, lessons learned, epiphanies, memories... Kick our collective ass with your truth. Break our hearts and make us cry. Make us laugh. Make us shove our laptop across the table, your words make us so freakin' mad. Bring us a moment of joy. Let us share your moment of peace.

We generally accept essays under 5,000 words but this is not a hard and fast rule. Shorter is often sweeter when it comes to a powerful essay. Except when it isn't.
