Submit to Mortal

Submissions to Mortal have closed. We are currently going through submissions and emails, and publishing all those that have been accepted. Thank you for your patience! We will reopen again soon and we look forward to publishing your lovely writing!

In the meantime, please keep the following in mind for when submissions reopen:

  • Dates for all things such as print and digital publications, contests, and submission calls are currently fluid and flexible. For specific information follow or check our twitter @themortalmag for announcements.
  • We accept all types of submissions under the literature and art categories for print and online publication. For literature, Mortal accepts all genres of fiction, essays, and poetry. We do not publish books or anything over 5,000 words. We prefer pieces on the shorter side, 100-2000 words, and that have clarity.
  • Mortal accepts simultaneous submissions, however, if accepted elsewhere the submission to Mortal should please be withdrawn.
  • While submissions are open, continue to check our Submittable for specific calls and contests which are updated regularly.
