The Racket Journal considers submissions that contain work(s) of poetry and/or prose with a total combined word count of 2000 words or less. Also art.
Please send all submissions to [email protected].
As soon as your submission is seen, a confirmation will be sent.
The Racket Journal staff will try their very hardest to let you know within two weeks if they are accepting your piece (or not).
The Racket staff is constantly looking for ways to expand the diversity of the journal, and its readership; if you are a BIPOC writer, a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, or both, we heartily encourage you to submit.
